Although it's not possible for everybody, the best thing I did was go part time. I have less money but I don't give a fuck. Life's too short. Luckily enough my wife has a good job and likes my cooking. I also get the chance to spend more time with my daughter.

And let me guess. It wasn't the customers or anything directly related to them, that was causing the stress.

Sadly I cannot afford to go part time but at least my husband sees the difference in my attitude.
It changed from a panick attack each morning and evening to happily cycling to work and coming home with enough energy to work on my youtube videos.

So at least for me the whole "fuck it" works really well Smile
btw I do my job and I do it very well. I just will not take a million extra tasks or offer to help out again as it causes enormous stress without any benefit for myself or my career. Still doing what I am told though, actually was just recently assigned a very interesting project as my current team leader knows me and the things I like to work on well.

Fair play to you. In my job they took the fun out of and put the emphasis purely on productivity. This in turn caused high staff turnover which led to multi tasking, a massive backlog of files and unreachable targets. Hence the stress. I also do my job very well but I only do what I have to, no more or no less.Big Grin

Exactly this for EVERY customer service job I have done so far. They try to fix the issue by changing policies and increasing targets which is the wrong approach. It's not science but hey, who am I to talk Big Grin
