To develop habits to automate tasks:
Focus requires self-control and the ability to resist short-term temptations for long-term gains. Breath-work, yoga and meditation are mindful practices that effectively boost your willpower and focus, regardless of your shifting thoughts and volatile emotions.
Multitasking is the opposite of focus. So pick one important task and fully engage with it. Before starting the next thing, pause intentionally, take a deep breath, and bask in gratitude for the thing you just did.
If you tend to get bored doing one task, set a timer to perform it in short bursts of 15 to 25 minutes. Or you could batch together similar tasks that require the same resources.
Visualize the ideal process, instead of obsessing over desired results. Picture yourself performing the task brilliantly and with ease.
Imagine how you will feel when the goal is achieved. Use these positive vibes to inspire you, pull you in, and take focused action.

Every time you make a decision, you create a state of mental tension that is, in fact, stressful.
The solution is to reduce the number of decisions you need to make by using routines. If there's something you need to do every day, do it at the same time every day. Have a routine for preparing for your day in the morning, and packing up to go home at night. Simple routines can dramatically reduce your experience of stress.
