Animated illustration of a man with large bushy hair and a large bushy mustache slowly waking up in bed and immediately screaming with red eyes wide open. This continues through many scenarios of a day: driving, working at a computer, eating, brushing teeth, etc. There are clips of other things emulating his eyes/screams: the sun, a dog, his food, people on TV, etc. When things go silent in a couple places we see social media posts with the text ‘aaaaaa’ and a like action.

Customer to the team: „we really need to focus on finishing PBIs to get the work done and reach our sprint goal“

Me thinking: what the fuck do you think I do all day long?

Do these people really think that work will get done faster by putting pressure and stress on the dev team?
No, it will definitely not.

But people will be more pissed on the day job and work will result with less quality, because everyone will focus on get shit done as fast as possible and not get it done right. That’s not sustainable (I hate that word, but it’s the most suitable here).
Artificial pressure from people in leading positions is the worst thing you can do to a development team and really drains motivation. If people in a leading position can’t handle pressure and stress, but simply forward it to the dev team then they are not the right person for the job.

It’s 4:30. I have one hour left in the work day. It feels like an eternity.

This has been a long one. I am in the office today and I really wish I had been able to work from home. I really miss Jen today. I always miss Jen when I am not near her, but today has felt so much worse. I just want to go home and have dinner with her and relax a little. She has a computer hardware project she wants to do tonight. I can help out a little. It will be fun.

I am not sure what the problem was today. It has just felt like an endless grind of a day. That happens sometimes. It’s actually been quiet and calm, but it’s not at home and somehow that makes quiet and calm feel stressful. Weird, eh?

53 minutes until quittin’ time. I can make it. Who knows how long the commute will be. It’s pitch dark outside already (stupid non-daylight savings time). It’s 34 degrees out. It will probably be below freezing by the time I leave. I really don’t like this time of year. Blah.

Okay, let’s make that last hour of the work day productive. What do you say. Get some work done and then go home to where you belong.

ADDENDUM: Almost immediately after publishing this post we got pulled into an escalated issue for one of our biggest customers. So much for calm and quiet.

According to the #Department of #Health and Human Services, for most healthy #adults it is recommended to get at least #150minutes of #moderate #aerobic activity per #week to #manage #stress [1]. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) also states that 150 minutes a week of moderate physical activity can help reduce the risk of depression and anxiety and improve brain health[3].

Happy & proud to share our latest work with the #bluespot community, #locuscoeruleus enthusiasts, and anyone else willing to read 😉

4 years ago, we had the idea that endogenous neuromodulatory systems are in place that control LC activity, thereby promoting adaptive behavioral responses in challenging environments.

We examined the role of Neuropeptide Y, as a possible candidate system for this, and identified a new population of #NPY-expressing neurons, distributed in the pericoerulean space.

We showed that peri-LC NPY cells innervate the region, providing #NPY input onto #noradrenergic neurons of the LC, and strongly inhibiting their activity, via Y1Rs.

Next, we showed that chemogenetic stimulation of NPY cells led to anxiety-relief, via Y1Rs, and conversely, inhibition of NPY neurons triggered an anxiogenic phenotype.

Together, we showed a novel role for NPY-mediated #neuromodulation of the LC in adaptive behaviors.

We re happy to hear your thoughts /ideas /feedback on our data.

Please share/boost. Happy reading 🔵

There's an epidemic of #stress in the #workplace; I wonder why?


& that's before we get onto the UK's bullying & dysfunctional management style, the general perception that the UK's state institutions are failing, and that the #climatecrisis now seems inevitably damaging to everyday life...

that people are stressed should be no surprise; stress is about seeing a desired end & having no agency to get to it!

Out of necessity I have forced myself to be singularly focused on tackling some clutter demons that have built up during COVID. I may not get to 100% by the time family arrives but I will do my best to get as close as possible.

This was many layered issues, enhanced by isolation and stress surrounding COVID and struggling to get school district to do the needful. It’s nice to emerge, but I see some goals here out of this mess.

Just got word that our power is back. Time to clean out the fridge and get this hurdle behind us, then focus on the basement. Plumbers said it might take a few days to get back to us since they are focusing on storm emergencies. Which is actually kinda comforting in a weird way because they don't think our thing is pooling fast enough to be considered an emergency. Fans and dehumidifiers are back on to help on that front.

Everything's comin' up Millhouse!

Personal update: water has been slowly accumulating in the basement (where our bedroom is) since Tuesday. Restorers have ripped up the carpet and most of the drywall, but a storm knocked the power out since Thursday evening, so they can't continue and the dehumidifiers aren't working. We still haven't found the source of the leak so we have no idea how much this will cost us to fix. School starts Monday, I've missed a week of work, our house is unlivable, and there's no potential end date/cost to this whole thing.

I realize that less than a week of stressors is pretty light on the grand scale of things, so I hope this isn't coming off as whiny. I need to vent at a place that will not transfer the stress to my kids.

We have a safe place to stay for now.

Even if you live in a city where the birds are drowned out by traffic, construction, or landscaping noise, you can still listen to birdsong through headphones -- it has a similar effect!

At a previous job, #HR promoted #mindfulness #meditation. I think that program was very successful. Not because it helped reduce #stress.

I mean it did that. And with that, it probably made me more productive and more pleasant to work with.

But it also prevented me from thinking about why I was stressed. Mindfulness disassociates the self from emotions. I am not what I feel. It wasn't the job's tight deadlines or high expectations that was causing me stress. It was cognitive dissonance.

Deep down, I knew some of my work wasn't beneficial to society. That much of it was strengthening extractive #business practices. That it benefited only a few already rich share holders and some customers. But I believed in our 'mission' and that belief clashed with the other realizations. Mindfullness meditation helped me not to worry about it at night and be a good coworker the next day.

I still think mindfulness meditation can be good—I still practice it when I feel overwhelmed. But I hope that people who are sad, anxious or angry at a well-paid job let their emotions run free and #rage against how societies are messing things up. And then decide about what they really need in life.

Wir müssen mal über #Arbeitsschutz in der #IT und anderen Bürojobs sprechen. Ich hatte heute von 08:30-12:50 durchgängig Teams-Calls. 7 Calls aus 4 Projekten. Das kann auf Dauer nicht gut gehen.

Wieviele Calls habt Ihr so am Tag? Wie fühlt Ihr Euch damit? Haltet Ihr das für sinnvoll und/oder gesund? Kommt Ihr noch zu echter Arbeit? Springt Ihr oft zwischen Themen?

Gerne in der #Umfrage und im Kommentar beteiligen. Gerne Boosten. #boost #stress #burnout #teams

Viele von euch werden wissen, wie schwierig es ist, #Stress exakt zu erfassen. Wirklich zuverlässige Aussagen liefert nur Cortisol-Messung. In meiner heutigen #SporksScienceNews berichte ich über Zukunft der #Stress-Messung: Kooperation entwickelte Gerät, das über bis zu 72 h hinweg alle 20 Min Hormonproben von Menschen einsammelt.

Heutige Technik schafft das schwerlich über 24 Stunden hinweg u schon gar nicht im Schlaf o bei der Arbeit. Wenn man aber das mögliche Risiko eines Menschen für ein Stressleiden wie #Depressionen, starkes #Übergewicht (#Adipositas), Typ-2-#Diabetes und zum Teil sogar #Krebs verringern möchte, sollte man wissen, wann, wie und warum diese Person gefährlichen #Stress erlebt.

Eine Messung am Tag, für die jemand womöglich sogar zum Arzt gehen muss, ist hier wenig zielführend. Forschende bewerten die neue Technik deshalb als Revolution.
