We may tend to a cosmos of computers in our day jobs but we still suffer from an abundance of feelings its constellations lack. It's easy to lose ourselves in anger or stress or feel overwhelmed. Totally normal, healthy and human. How you react to those big feelings is a choice. From Western thinkers like Marcus Aurelius to Eastern contemplatives like The Buddha, we unearth practical techniques you can adopt in the workplace and on Twitter to keep yourself sane, kind and effective.
