v Breathe. When stressed, lost in a problem or the past or future in your mind breathe with your belly for two minutes and just focus on the air going in and out. This will calm your body down and bring your mind back into the present.
v Do one thing a time. You’ll get better results and feel better and less stressed while doing those things.
v Write it all down. Use your mind for better things than remembering what to do. And the mind is often like a leaky bucket. So write down all your great ideas, insights and thoughts before they go missing somewhere and add what you need to do to a to-do list.
v Do all your food shopping once a week. You’ll save time, energy and possibly money.
v Stop doing what you don’t like doing any more. Life changes and so do you. If you don’t like doing something anymore then stop doing that (even if it may take some time before you can do so by for example: switching jobs).
v Stop trying to please everyone. There will always be people who you don’t get along with or that do not like you for some reason.
v Stop trying to do things perfectly. Go for good enough instead and when you are there you are done. Get things all the way to do this way and then move on to the next thing.
v Pack your bag before you go to bed. Then you don’t have to get stressed out by that in morning and you are less likely to forget something.
