To manage stress effectively so that it doesn’t overwhelm you.
When you're stressed, it can be difficult to focus on making time for yourself. Resilient people use techniques to ensure stress does not overwhelm them. These include mindfulness, breathing exercises, visualisation and humour.
Try the following tip. Regular use will effect positive change in your habits. Before long, it will become second nature.
Write a to-do list
Identify the situations in your life that cause you stress. List every task you need to complete and tick them off as you go. Ask yourself, “Can I complete this task in the time available?”, “Can I delegate or get help with this task?” or “Can this task wait?”.
To-do lists help you keep track of what needs to be done, prioritise your time and energy and be more productive.
