“I recommend you take care of the minutes and the hours will take care of themselves.” – Earl of Chesterfield
I have been feeling overwhelmed for a while, especially recently. I have added more work to my daily schedule, and it can feel sometimes hard to keep up with everything, be on top and find time to finish all of your tasks as well as having time for yourself (almost none in the past week for me!).
So if you’re going through that feeling, please know that you are not alone.
Stop saying you’re busy
Words have an amazing power on how you feel, and how you perform. So stop saying and thinking that you are busy. It’s a situation, but do not define yourself by being busy. Instead focus on other emotions and try using other words as of what you are currently doing. It will really change the way you feel.
Make a List
A to-do list will help you see things clearer in your mind and define a schedule. Once you do a list of all the tasks that you have to do, establish order of priority.
We tend to to go first to the easiest to do it, it doesn’t help. You should do first the hardest task you have to get done, first thing in the morning. that is when you still have your energy. Also accomplishing the most important and biggest task first will motivate you for the rest to come.
One thing at a time
The say to do 2 things at once is to do neither. Once you already have your to do list, just start one thing after the other. When you are working on something just focus on it, try not to multitask it will overwhelm you even more.
Have a break
Take a break every now and then, even if it is only 15minutes. Try to get outside, breathe some fresh air. you workday better after that.
So what do you think, are you ready to try and take those advice?
