How do you manage working in a constantly stressful environment?

"My work environment is stressful, however; I am able to create a healthy balance for myself through taking time for stress management outside of the workplace. I workout regularly, read books and spend time with friends in casual settings such as patio pints in the sun! All of these things help me to create a balance so that I can easily handle the stress that comes with being a Stock Broker."

How do you manage working in a constantly stressful environment?
I will not mix emotions into work place and with colleagues and be calm even in stressful conditions.
I work very well in stressful situations I stay always calmed.
Never give up. Take deep breaths and prioritize my workload. If I need to stay a little longer to finish a task I will. NEVER show stress, keep calm and do my best. If you keep up with you job duties and constantly reevaluate your workload, you should not have a problem when things get hectic.
Pressure is very important to me. Good pressure, such as having a lot of assignments to work on, or an upcoming deadline, helps me to stay motivated and productive. Of course, there are times when too much pressure can lead to stress; however, I am very skilled at balancing multiple projects and meeting deadlines, which prevents me from feeling stressed often. For example, I once had three large projects due in the same week, which was a lot of pressure. However, because I created a schedule that detailed how I would break down each project into small assignments, I completed all three projects ahead of time, and avoided unnecessary stress.
As I said in my previous answer I am very good with handling pressure from my high school and college athletic experremce.
First I remain calm I actually practice the grand silence and then I carefully assess the situation and check solutions I can make.
To be patient, to understand the requirements to be fulfilled under my superiors.
I try to set my own targets and reach them, and learn from my mistakes and aim to be better. I try not to let anything else get to me but these.
I use it to my advantage, the adrenaline from the pressure aids me in taking quick, intelligent decisions based upon my knowledge of what I am doing.
I usually take pressure as a motivation factor. I have ability of delivering when I'm under pressure and keep focus when things get stressful.
I am able to deliver in most kind of environments. Some are more challenging than others, but with hard work and determination, you can overcome any situation. I usually handle pressure pretty well trying tot are it as encouragement, but sometimes what I need is some time to analyze and process the circumstances in order to come back with a refreshed mentality.
I quitly and any probal solve a discus a senier person.
I also give appropriate time and focus according to the environment I am at specific time of the day. The stress is sometimes good to produce effort. When I am back home, I often chill out. Sport helps me a lot too to translate the stress into good energy.
