Across the country, many will find themselves streaming former FBI director James Comey's testimony on their iPhones, or watching alongside colleagues. (Some of you, admit it, will try to be sneaky about tuning in when the boss comes around.)

During the much-anticipated appearance Thursday, Comey is expected to provide dramatic testimony that President Trump pressed him to pledge his loyalty and drop the investigation of former national security adviser Michael Flynn's ties to Russia.

While people tend to avoid politics at work, the testimony is at 10 a.m. ET, putting many in a potentially awkward position. Should you tell your coworkers how you feel about Comey? Or the president?

Dr. James Lomax, a professor in the Menninger Department of Psychiatry and Behavior Sciences at Baylor College of Medicine, says it’s important for people to learn how to remain calm when things get heated in the office.
