The best way to deal with ANY stress is through mindfulness practice. Once you learn meditation techniques you can apply it to all areas of your life.

To begin, it helps to keep in mind that even wanted changes bring stress - and then if the change was not wanted, even more stress. Some of the best answers to questions about stress may seem very boring: Things that help the mind adapt to new situations - sleeping enough, neither over- nor under-eating, and whatever physical movement is fun for you - are really important. Having a friend or loved one outside the job situation who is willing to listen to you without trying to fix you is invaluable. If the stress seems "over the top" to you, or lasts for more than a few weeks, it may be worth doing some brainspotting (a very targeted mindfulness practice) to see what's going on and how you can alleviate the stress.
