Easy Ways to De-Stress When You Don't Have Time

Bring some calm into your day

  • If You Have 5 Minutes. Consciously do nothing to help you unwind. Stand up, stretch, and take a few deep breaths.
  • If You Have 15 Minutes. Take a short walk. Getting away from your current environment gives your mind something new to focus on.
  • If You Have an Hour.  The only way to use that time to truly reduce your stress level is to do something totally for yourself.
  • If You Have a Half-Day. Try using it to get outside your traditional routine and duties. Take time to indulge in a nice experience that lets you relax and regroup.

Time blocking and focus

Also, focusing on one task at a time can make you up to 80% more productive than splitting your attention across multiple tasks.

Cons of the time blocking practice
  • It takes a lot of time and effort.
  • Few of us (if any) have the same schedule every day.
  • We’re bad at estimating how long tasks will take to do.
  • Constant interruptions and “urgent” tasks can destroy your system.
  • Flexibility is key in most workplaces.
  • You can lose sight of the bigger picture if you focus just on each day.
