Are you someone who seems continually to be rushing from one task to another or trying to do multiple different things simultaneously? At times this can be exciting but more often than not it is stressful for both mind and body. Here are some tips to help you restore some balance in your life:
1. In the tasks that you are doing, focus on the essentials that need to be done, rather than wasting time on peripheral aspects.
2. Take short breaks when doing tasks for a long time. This usually helps you to be more productive with the time you do spend on the tasks. It is sometimes referred to as a decompression routine.
3. If you feel that the burden of the tasks you are doing is too great for you, try to seek or negotiate support from others who might be able to help with some of the tasks in a constructive way - don't just allow it to build up to a point where you can't cope. There is no shame in admitting that you need help.
4. Finally, keep some time for relaxation each week, doing something for yourself, whether that involves pampering yourself, socialising, partaking in something creative or relaxing in another way - this is your special time and can help to prevent you getting stressed out.
