Sleep-Eat-Exercise: I know you’ve heard it all before but it bears a reminder. The more you don’t take care of yourself, the more stressed you are. The more stressed you are, the more likely you will get sick. How in the world will you get anything done if you are sick? Make eight hours of sleep your first priority. Add in some exercise even if it is just a 30 minute walk during your lunch time. Stock up on healthy food including healthy snacks for at work. Don’t let junk food weigh you down.
Cull the Clutter: The more junk you have piled around you, the more it weighs you down. The more stressed you are about how much you have to do and the less you get done. If you can’t stop and clean up then try a one thing at a time technique. Make a new plan that every time you touch something you have to put it away. Change your mind on today’s outfit, hang up that other one you got out. Eat something, then put that dish in the dishwasher. Have the mail in your hand? Then toss junk mail now. If you continue that trend, you’ll begin to see a real reduction in clutter.
Be Early: Change your schedule so you start work a half-hour early. That extra half hour of quiet time is super productive for organizing your day and finishing tasks. You can get done a ton of stuff in that extra 2.5 hours – all of which is without interruption.
Until next time …
