Who, me, stress?  Nah….. sysadmins never have any stress, right?

Well, just in case you do – my feelings are that laughter is the best medicine – and I mean laugh out loud funny.  So what do you do?

There are a lot of ways to tickle the funny bone, and they’re personal as well.  Here are several that I use:

  • Subscribe to RSS feeds like Sharky’s Column and The Daily WTF.
  • Favorite comics (for me, that means: Liberty Meadows, Calvin and Hobbes, and Get Fuzzy)
  • Personal copies of laugh out loud funny comics
  • Funny movies

If you can indulge in some of these away from the office, it is much better.  Fresh air is good, too – as is doing something totally unrelated to work (even if it is other work).

Burn-out is a real danger to system administrators; so get away from the tension and away from the office!
