This week’s video about overcoming stress is coming from Boston Airport where I had some time to reflect on how many times we are overwhelmed or stressed out at work or in our personal life, often as a result of dealing with difficult conversations.

Firstly, it’s not you – it’s the cookies in your browser! Secondly, did you know you can go in and clear your cache which removes all the history/cookies from your browser?!
