IF YOUR BOSS is like ours – random mood swings, unprovoked acts of cubicle violence-then there’s a good chance he’s making you fin.

If you are serious enough about your health to exercise and eat right, try adding relaxation techniques to your busy day. Yoga, breathing exercises or even high-impact sports like punching a windbag, or a heavy bag rather, can be a great way to unwind.
