Let’s face it; most people think that their job is the most stressful or most difficult job out there, it tends to be very subjective in many respects. The truth is unless you are in the industry, you don’t know what it is like to deal with all the unique stressors that come up. According to Tom Ross, most of the public is unaware of the toll many designers deal with day in and day out. These are the creative folks who work to make big companies and small startups look aesthetically pleasing; there are bound to be some challenges.

What is your outlet for getting some distance between you and the stressors and challenges of your office? Do you hit the basketball court, binge-watch Netflix, reach for some comfort food, or do you do something different? At the end of the day, we all need a way to take the work hat off at some point and relax. Tom Ross learned this lessons the hard way, he worked so hard and challenged himself so much that his physical and mental health took a turn for the worse. Thankfully, Tom found his way to a healthier path and now regularly prioritizes fun and relaxation in his life. What can you learn from Tom’s story?
