Make a List

Write down all the things that go through your head. You will see they are not that many.

When you think of the same things over and over, you feel overwhelmed. But when you write them down on a piece of pape you realize the volume of your to-dos is much more manageable.

Time Management

MORE IDEAS FROM THE ARTICLE

Some things on your list will take 15 minutes or less. Group those things together. 
Then there are longer things (writing, finishing a project, etc). Those each need at least an hour if not several hours.
  • Figure out the best time slot for each activity.
  • Whatever feels most urgent or necessary, schedule it first.
  • Schedule time to finish your work projects, even if they are due later in time.
  • Schedule time for your meals and for usual errands.

Scheduling your day won't take you long and will be a substantial anxiety reliever.

The day ahead won't overwhelm you and you will be able to focus and enjoy it.

Plan Your Perfect Life

Pick the 4-5 most important things in your life, and build your perfect life around those things, eliminating most of the rest if possible. Then plan and schedule the first steps to get there, starting today.

Getting an early start

Plan your morning the night before and stick to your plan. 
If a new task comes in that isn’t 100% urgent, designate a time that you’ll work on it uninterrupted or try to delegate the problem solving as much as possible until you have time to deal with it.
