      Brian's Answer

      "Due to tight deadlines, travel and other demands of the senior auditor role, stress is inevitable. However, there are steps I take to help mitigate stress. First, I try to be as organized as possible. I am constantly prioritizing my workload to make sure time-sensitive tasks are handled before they are due. Next, I try to leave work at work. When not at work, I enjoy exercising, reading and traveling. Being able to enjoy these activities makes me feel calmer and rejuvenated at work."

      "Stress is an inevitable part of our lives. I follow a daily routine to practice yogic exercises and meditation techniques that help to reduce stress levels. When out of work, I prefer to watch some music shows that relax and rejuvenate my mind to be better prepared for challenging tasks."
