All I need to sort out now if my work life which is a huge strain at the moment and really dragging me down. Any tips on how to be happy in your work life? I work as an accounts assistant and bookkeeper which I love but have such a pressure put on me by the partners at work. I'm also studying to be a qualified accountant which is starting to take over my life :( xx

Hello lovely yes work/life is a tricky balance to get right. Just make sure to put aside some time for yourself in the evenings and at weekends. Find a hobby you really enjoy and make sure you dedicate time to it for a switching off period. Meditations and yoga helps me xx

Conquering work stress is one of the biggest factors in career success - you'll always have periods where stress levels are high but you need to make sure the day to day grind is manageable. I plan like mad at the start of the week - do up a weekly to do list and pick off three key priorities every day. Something I find really helpful is to do 15 minute blasts - for example instead of checking emails often, I take 15 mins every few hours and blast them. I do it with housework etc too. It's amazing how much you can get done in a short space of time!
