Tips for Reducing Your Stressors

Manage Your Time

Tight timelines can make you feel stressed. To feel more in control of your time try:

  • Getting up 15 minutes early so you aren't playing catch-up from the start
  • Schedule extra time, so you won't feel you are running late all the time
  • Take breaks to give yourself a breath and create more space in the day

Get Organized

  • Make lists to help you remember everything (and let go of them in your mind)
  • Prioritize the items on your list and check them off as you complete them
  • Set goals for each day that you can reasonably accomplish
  • Delegate tasks

Focus on Your Priorities

  • Know your limits and say no or negotiate a reasonable timeline
  • Choose your projects, accepting that you can't change everything
  • Balance professional and personal life and priorities
