like tupperware, but for stress

Basically I'm curious what tips and tricks folks have for compartmentalizing, so stress in one area of your life has less of an impact on other areas.

For me it's mostly associated with work - our organization has undergone a massive reorganization which has everyone turned upside down, I'm 'acquiring' new reportees/employees, my boss is retiring, and in my organization (pre and post reorg) decision making is quite decentralized - progress is made (soooo slowly) by committee and consensus building. None of this is necessarily bad, but I find it very exhausting (especially the constant human negotiation/juggling element) and bringing a constant level of low level anxiety to my job. I think I can handle the actual work, things will improve some with time etc. but in the mean time I hate thinking about my job after I've gone home, especially when I'm trying to sleep at night. Basically I want, as much as possible, to only worry about work when I'm at work.
So what are your tips or tricks for keeping stress in one specific area from leaking all over the rest of your life?
