Administrative Professionals Day (previously known as Secretary's Day) is an unofficial secular holiday observed on the last Wednesday of April (April 26 in 2006, April 25 in 2007), to recognize the work of clerical employees such as administrative assistants, receptionists, paralegals, etc. It is celebrated as part of a larger Administrative Professionals Week, which takes place during the last full week of April.

National Professional Secretaries Week and National Secretaries' Day was created in 1952 through the work of Harry F. Klemfuss of Young and Rubicam. Klemfuss recognized the importance and value of the position to a company or business. His goal was to encourage more women to become administrative assistants (called secretaries at the time). Using his skill and experience in public relations, Klemfuss promoted the values and importance of the job of administrative assistants. In doing so, he also created the holiday in recognition of the importance of administrative assistants.

The official period of appreciation/celebration was first proclaimed by U.S. Secretary of Commerce Charles Sawyer as "National Secretaries Week," which was held June 1-7 in 1952, with Wednesday, June 4, 1952 designated National Secretaries Day. The first Secretaries' Day was held in that year by the International Association of Administrative Professionals, with the support of an association of corporate groups. In 1998, the name of the holiday was changed to better represent the full range of administrative positions.

In the United States, the day is often celebrated by giving one's assistant flowers, candy, or small gifts, or by taking him/her out to lunch.

In the United States, ''Administrative Professionals Day®'' is a registered trademark with the serial number 75898930. The registrant is the International Association of Administrative Professionals. The holiday has been the source of some controversy and criticism in the United States, where it is often mocked as a Hallmark Holiday.

Will this matter in 5 years from now?
If yes, then do something about the situation.
If no, then let it go." Catherine Pulsifer

Hope is a belief in a positive outcome related to events and circumstances in one's life. Hope implies a certain amount of perseverance — i.e. believing that a positive outcome is possible even when there is some evidence to the contrary. It is impossible to survive in this world without hope and we humans are living on hopes, be it related to our professional life or our personal life. Hope is the only food for survival.

Exams are a time when stress levels are higher than usual. Stress can be positive; helping you to stay motivated and focused. However, too much stress can be unhelpful; it can make you feel overwhelmed, confused, exhausted and edgy. It's important to try and keep things in perspective and find ways of reducing stress if things seem to be getting on top of you.

All The Best ! A cute message to encourage your friend/ loved one.

Few tips to manage Exam Stress are as follows:

  • Keep your routine outside study and take regular breaks - It's important to have regular study breaks and time for relaxation and exercise. Going for a walk, run or to the gym is not a waste of time it is a great way to clear your head and help you study better. Watching your favorite TV show or going to the movies are also good ways to take a break from studying.
  • Limit drugs - Caffeine (e.g. coffee, no-doze, V) and other drugs (e.g. speed, coke) give you a short lift before making you crash and burn. They can make you feel sick, and unable to sleep or concentrate properly. You actually study better with regular breaks, getting lots of sleep and exercise.
  • Have a number of options for the future - Getting the marks to get into your first preference is great, but it's not the end of the world if you don't - there are other options to get into your course. These include deferring and getting some practical experience in your field, doing further study, writing to the university, retaking some subjects in some cases, or transferring in after a year or two. And, if you do accept another offer, you may even find that you like it.
  • Manage expectations - External pressures around exams can be huge. It can be hard to deal with, especially with family and people you respect, but you need to remember that it's your life and your exam, with you in control.
  • Look after your body - It's easy to let exams get on top of you and to forget to look after yourself. If possible try to get a good night sleep. It's a good time to make an effort to eat healthy, including plenty of fruits and vegetables.
  • Ask for and accept support - If you're feeling overwhelmed, you might find it helpful to talk to a teacher or counselor. It's also important to ask for, and accept, support from your family if you can. This support might be practical, like picking you up from the library, or emotional, including advice or help.

Always remember one thing that there is a light at the end of every tunnel you pass through. Exams have a beginning and an end, and the stress that goes along with them should end with the exam. And once you are done with the exam, all your stress will blow off and bring in your life a great time to enjoy.
