How to Cope With Tax-Time Stress

Experts explain ways to avoid the emotional storms of tax season.

Stress-Free Accounting

A few tips for harried accountants, courtesy of Moreno, owner of wellness coaching firm PeopleFit USA:

  • Reduce, rather than postpone, your fitness program. If it takes too much time to go to the gym, then do light exercise at work. Take the stairs to the office or do squats at your desk.

  • Don't skip breakfast or work through lunch just because you're busy. You'll get fatigued or starved and end up filling the void with junk food. Instead, fuel up at regular intervals on foods like fruit, nuts, yogurt, or hard-boiled eggs. They're healthy and easy to pack.

  • Don't use food to relieve your stress. Try stretching, deep breathing, or a little exercise instead.
