Job opportunities for people with CouchDB skills

Time to relax!

  • “But what exactly is stressing people out about their jobs? According to the study, about 16 percent report complicated work as being their number-one stressor, and another 15 percent name long hours. Other factors people commonly cite as the most stressful part of their jobs include a lack of control, a lack of resources, tough deadlines, and too much work.” – Here’s How Most People De-Stress After Work
  • “Employees are encouraged to bring their cats to work, and Fukuda says that he will even give 5,000 yen (just under R600) to those who want to adopt a rescue cat. When not chasing their toys, the cats can be seen wandering about and lolling on desks.” – De-stress with pets in the workplace
  • “Incorporating meditation into a chaotic day can be challenging. Who has time to sit down and clear the mind when you have a million other things to do? But here’s the kicker—even though it may seem like you have no time for it, meditation can actually help you feel more focused and productive.” – A 2-Minute Meditation to De-Stress and Feel Happier
  • “When you are triggered, the emotional part of your brain takes over. You are flooded with adrenaline and cortisol, the same neurotransmitters and hormones that have evolutionarily protected us from threats like bear attacks (freeze, fight, or flight). Your logical brain temporarily shuts down, and you lose the ability to solve problems, make decisions, and think rationally.” – Handle Your Stress Better by Knowing What Causes It
