One of the things Shawn Achor talks about is journaling about one positive moment each day, but lately I've felt so stressed out, it's hard to find a positive moment to reflect on.

I'm starting in on the annual worst time of my job, which is pilot season where the work-load triples. So far, we haven't ordered as many pilots as normal but of course there is plenty of time to order more. I need to find the correct balance of working hard and staying late to get it all done, but not staying so late that I'm insane from over work.

I do have an office (after several years of working in a cube) with a door and a couple of very nice prints that I framed and brought it. I try to keep my work space as neat as I can, so I'm not overwhelmed with chaos everyday.

It sounds like you have found a positive in the oasis you have at work. Fewer distractions can be a life saver. Is it hard for you to give yourself permission to leave some of the work for the next day, after a you've done a reasonable amount? Or permission to relax when you leave work? Never feeling off the clock can be a heavy stressor.

I have to leave work undone everyday. There is too much to actually get fully caught up. I generally give my self permission to relax at home, but the work comes up in mind at inconvienient times.
