Thanks for the feedback and great to hear from you Cyndi wilkins

While I write from the kitchen perspective ultimately anything can stress someone out, I write to try to help young Cooks cope, manage and eventually succeed but these concepts can be applied to anyone anywhere. Unfortunately many of these more nebulous, "psychological", aspects are neglected in our training, (I'm sure in other vocations as well), but as I always say, "recognition" is the first step towards a solution, (and sometimes the biggest and hardest step).
