  • stressPlan each day. Planning your day can help you accomplish more and feel more in control of your life.
  • Prioritize your tasks.  Prioritizing tasks will ensure that you spend your time and energy on those that are truly important to you.
  • Delegate. Take a look at your to-do list and consider what you can pass on to someone else.

  • Break large, time-consuming tasks into smaller tasks. Work on them a few minutes at a time until you get them all done.
  • Limit distractions. Block out time on your calendar for big projects. During that time, close your door and turn off your phone, pager and email.
  • Get plenty of sleep, eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly
  • Take a break when needed. Too much stress can derail your attempts at getting organized. When you need a break, take one.
