In the ever widening circles of family and work, women need to reexamine their own lifestyles to manage stress and avoid burnout. Embracing a more balanced lifestyle means reconnecting with yourself and rediscovering the pleasure in the small things you used to do. These seven stress and management tips will help you learn how to create a more balanced life and manage your own stresses. Identify your five most important values which you can use as a "filter" to help you assess how you manage your time. This will help you decide which activities are worth pursuing and which you need to drop.
The traditional checklist, a long, handwritten list of tasks, has evolved along with new technologies. In the past, we would relish in the act of crossing off each task as it is completed. But in today`s technology-driven world, the checklist takes on a new form. Today`s checklist is probably typed into a computer or a Day Planner, and the emotional "cross off" has been transformed to the harsh tapping of the delete key. Despite technology, regardless of where you are moving, a checklist will be needed to help you get there.
Ideally the template will keep track of where you are in the day, all incomplete tasks, and keep you posted, at a glance, on how you are doing. Regardless how you do this, with some cleverness you will find a way. The key point is to make sure the above 7 tips are implemented. You will be amazed how much you can get done and how much ease of mind you will have, as you work, knowing you are working with a plan.
Planning and Working are separate activities. We should not really mix the two actions. It is best to Plan and then Do. It is also best to plan early (either the morning of or the evening before). You do not work 24/7. So it is important to establish your duties hours. This can be your work period on the job, or even extend beyond our standard office time. For work-at-home folks this period may begin early and end late. You should establish a specific start time and an end time.
