How long is your daily to-do list? If you are feeling harried and stressed most days, your list might need some trimming. Before you agree to take on a new task, consider how much added stress it will cause you. If you don’t think you can handle the additional stress, politely say “no.” Or look for other, less stressful ways you can help out. And if it’s a task you need to do for yourself, see if you can schedule it for later in the week or month.
How do you prioritize the tasks on your to-do list to avoid feeling overwhelmed?
