Sometimes there’s just no escaping a really long day—or even week—at work. When hump days become your every day, it certainly takes a lot out of you. Here’s how some real lady bosses get by and de-stress when the going gets tough:

My shift starts really early so depending on how bad the situation is at work, stress can come as early as 6 a.m. Some days are extra challenging, especially with the concurrent client demands. When all is done, I treat myself to some wine and re-runs [of my favorite TV show].” - Gratz, IT Specialist, 33

Apart from the regular court appearances, what’s really stressful about this job are all the memos and pleadings that must be written. Most of them are rushed, too, so stress levels do tend to rise exponentially with the amount of work I have to do. To counter this, I de-stress by working out. Also, wine.” - Ina, Lawyer, 33



I do casual gaming, usually [on my phone]. Fortunately, there are plenty of mobile games to choose from now, and there’s even an emulator for handhelds. Takes me back to all those light and fun games from before!” - Rica, Content Editor, 32

I tend to window shop for books or buy notebooks whenever I’m feeling really stressed. So if you see me with a lot of those in my shopping bag, it means I am stressed.” - Tats, Entrepreneur, 28

“I have coffee in a nice place, usually at a coffee shop where no one goes. Then I just zone out, read a book, or write a long message to my best friend in New York, Rhona. Also, retail therapy works—I do it online, or in the mall. And of course, inom with friends. That never gets old.” Isa, Real Estate Agent, 29



I used to smoke when stressed, but since I quit, I now mostly resort to just chewing my new favorite candy, Mentos Incredible Chew. It’s great ‘cause it’s soft enough to give you more of that chewing action, and with longer-lasting flavor too!” - Mabie, Marketing Manager, 33

There’s nothing that a freezing glass of beer can’t solve. If I don’t have an ice cold stash at home, I go to my local hangout bar. If there’s no beer available, a half gallon of vanilla ice cream should do the trick.” - Carmina, Project Manager, 33
