Angela Civitella is an executive, business leadership coach, and founder of Intinde. Angela explains that her company, Intinde, is more than a name. It's the feeling you get while traversing the road to your greatest self. It's more than a practice — it's a passion. Angela promotes focus, direction, strength, power, and fearlessness on the continued quest for personal excellence..


Our frequent contributor, Angela Civitella, draws on US data presented by the American Institute of Stress to show statistics in the US that are troubling. For example:[1]

  • 83% of U.S workers suffer from work-related stress.
  • U.S. businesses lose up to $300 billion yearly as a result of workplace stress.
  • Work-related stress causes 120,000 deaths and results in $190 billion in healthcare costs yearly.

If we adjust those figures in proportion to individual national populations, the findings are still just as worrisome wherever you happen to be.

Angela points out that November 3[2] is National Stress Awareness Day, and that this is a good time to evaluate how stress impacts you at work and in life. Angela says that one of the biggest challenges that she hears from her coaching clients is that stress builds quickly, especially when there is too much going on and they are forced to make decisions at a moments notice.

So, next time you find yourself in this situation, stop and remember these 7 tips to better decision-making when you are feeling stressed out.

Here is Angela Civitella's advice
