  Managing Stress on Busy Days
   With the stress and busy lives we lead, we can't help but feel that there aren't enough hours during the day- that the 24 hours allotted to us aren't enough to cover all our priorities.

   Being honest with ourselves, however, we have to admit that the overwhelming feeling of having too many things - too much work to do - is at some point, our own doing.

   When it comes to work, you have to ask yourselves if it's all worth it. If your efforts bring a promise of triumph, then by all means, push yourself forward. Giving up is probably one of the biggest mistakes you can ever make when you strive to win. Every trial surpassed is a step closer to your goal.

   Now, if you've made up your mind about going forward and overcoming all the hurdles, here are a few helpful tips that will make your mission of managing tasks easier:

  Managing Stress on Busy Days

1. Focus on what needs to be done - with the amount of work you still have to do, know which elements are your priorities. Lower priority tasks can be rescheduled while you concentrate on the higher priority tasks.

2. Break down your schedule and allot a reasonable amount of time for each of the tasks - this applies more to the smaller tasks. You only need to give a fraction of the overall time completing the less important chores.

3. Eliminate clutter - Clutter distracts your mind, and if you need to clear the space before starting anything, then by all means, do so. In the end, you can concentrate better and finish your work faster.

4. Set goals - without goals, you simply drift through life like a fish that follows the current of the sea. Goals give you the adrenaline that you need to complete what needs to be done.

5. Focus - make sure that you set up a work area where there are fewer distractions. Don't give in to temptation and position your work station beside the television. Be strong, be firm, even with yourself.

6. Know when to pamper yourself - spoil yourself and give yourself small rewards. The gratifying portion of your day does not have to be elaborate. In fact, a simple neck message or a cup of herbal tea will do.

7. Ask for help - know that even the heroes in movies needed help at some point. Seek the advice of friends and know that you can also delegate tasks to the people in your life.

   If you continue to stress about everything, your health is bound to fail. It's not a choice between your job and health. It's simply a matter of balance, in knowing when to say no and let go.

   If the amount of work reaches the point wherein your health and relationships are affected, then maybe it's time to rethink what you're doing and how to better manage your stress on busy days
