Before you decide how to respond, take a minute to think about the risks involved. If you speak up, could it hurt your relationships with coworkers or your boss? And if you don’t say anything, could you be violating your personal values or missing a chance to educate the person on how their behavior impacts others?
If you’re in a position of authority, the risks of staying silent are even greater. However, sometimes it’s just not worth the trouble to make a big stink about it.
Find ways to let off steam and boost your mood, like hanging out with cool coworkers or doing a quick meditation. Don’t let it ruin your day!
