People are always complaining about how work/school makes them stressed out and tired but they are not doing anything about it. I believe there is a solution to this problem
In order to tackle this situation the key is to be organized.
Step 1: Get a notebook/journal
Step 2: Write down everything you need to do for that day/week
- Read a book
- Send an email
- Write a blog entry
- Read ch 1 of your textbook
- Answer free response questions
- Go to a meeting
- Catch up with a friend
- Network with professionals
Step 3: Allot your time so that you can complete each thing accordingly to plan.
Step 4: Set a specific timeframe to complete your task. Ex : 30 minutes to one hour.
Step 5: Complete each task and mark them off one by one as you go
Step 6: Did you go over your time limit? Try to keep in mind what happened that made you go overtime.
Step 7: Reward yourself by the end of the day for your hardwork and keeping up with your organization skills.
- Reward yourself with ice cream
- Video games
- Hobbies/free time
Good luck to my fellow people and let me know if this method helps you reduce stress
