It can be difficult to maintain your sense of humor during stressful or busy seasons at work but according to about.com/health laughter really is the best medicine for stress management. Laughter reduces the level of stress hormones and increases the level of endorphins, it exercises the diaphragm and connects us with others.
So because I care about you (and your health) I’ve compiled tweets from 24 accounting and finance pros who are bringing the funny to Twitter this busy season for our annual #busyseason blog. (Note: Twitter handles have been omitted to protect the innocent.) Enjoy!
