Roberto Martinez has found watching the agony of other managers helps him relax in the heat of the Latics' battle to beat the drop.
For the third successive season Martinez finds himself staring at relegation from the Barclays Premier League, and with the odds again heavily stacked against his team.
Two years ago Wigan finished 16th and six points above the bottom three, repeating the position in the table last season, but only after winning their last two games to keep themselves up.
On this occasion, with seven games remaining, Wigan appear to be in a four-way fight with QPR, Blackburn and Bolton to avoid the fall into the Championship, with Wolves currently cut adrift.
Although Martinez concedes to not suffering from nerves or enduring any sleepless nights right now, the Spaniard knows of only one way to ease off in the current situation.
"I watch football - I know, I'm quite sad," said Martinez. "But I love watching football games and seeing other manager's problems on the pitch. I find it's quite relaxing. I feel that by looking at other team's problems it gives me a good feeling with my work."
