If your everyday routine leaves you feeling stressed out and run-down consider implementing small changes to help manage your stress.
1. Get Ahead on the Simple Parts of Your Routine
We tend to get overly stressed about simple things when we have a lot going on. If you commute to work every morning and tend to leave late because you can’t find certain things like your keys, company ID, etc. be sure to set everything out the night before. Try putting a hook near the door to hang your keys, or putting your laptop bag in the same spot every night.
These small things help ensure you’re not all over the place the next morning when you’re pressed for time and dashing out the door. Stressing out over things that are preventable can be a huge cause of unnecessary stress.
2. Prioritize Your To-Do List
Some days we dread a couple of tasks on our to-do list. Oftentimes, we tend to avoid these tasks until they are the last item on our list that remains unchecked. Sometimes the tasks we dread are not even as overwhelming as we build them up to be and they just need to be completed so we can move on.
Instead of feeling apprehensive about completing the task all day, consider completing it first. When we get the worst thing off our list at the beginning of the day, everything else below it will seem like a breeze in comparison. Allow the completed chore to give you a sense of accomplishment that sets the tone for the entire day.
3. Remember to Take the Time to Unwind
Unwinding at the end of the day can include a number of things that help mitigate stress. Self-care is important to ensure that we are taking care of our bodies and to help relieve stress. Yoga and meditation are also two great tools to help unwind your body and mind. And don’t forget to put the cell phone down when it’s time to go to bed, as our phones and other devices emit light that can interrupt our sleep cycle.
Even if our days are hectic, hitting the pause button on our crazy schedule at the end of the day can help you feel recharged and ready for the next day.
