Have you ever ended your day by thinking “Did I accomplish anything?” or maybe you wonder where all of the time went. If you don’t master your schedule, it will master you!
Here are some suggestions for reducing the stress of your schedule and freeing up more time for yourself:
- Line up your priorities. Obviously, you don’t have time to do everything, so you must make choices. You must decide what’s really important and what isn’t. Take some time to consider the direction of your life.
- Relax your attitude. Do you really have to do everything on your to-do list? No one is holding a gun to your head; a lot of your stress is self-imposed.
- Determine what your goals are. Being prepared reduces your stress but procrastination produces it. You work by either priorities or pressures.
- Relaxation: Take time to enjoy life. Balance is the key to stress management. Be sure to schedule some “me time” into your weekly schedule.
