Originally posted on Fuel the Future. It’s hard not to feel stressed, and all the time. For starters, there’s global weirding and the many unknowns (and knowns!) of the economy. As PR people, life moves so fast because of how quickly media is changing; what exactly is news today, and how can we possibly keep a firm grip on all the many communications channels out there? Plus, thanks to our many social networks churning away all the bad news that’s fit to type, it’s not surprising that many of us feel as if we’re living in a hyper state of stress. Stress is at an all-time high as many in our industry are becoming more like professional watchdogs (with all the noise and comments) than brand stewards.
