There are quite a few simple habits that you can start using in order to relieve some of your mental stress. One of the best things that you can do is make sure that you set alarms or reminders throughout the day so you don’t forget to do any of your essential tasks. You also want to figure out when a decision isn’t very important so you don’t dwell on it or waste too much time. Finally, try to plan for the thing that is most likely to go wrong so you’re never caught off guard.
- As soon as you think of an item you will need later, locate it.
- Setting alarms for appointments and dates relieves you of the distraction of having to remember.
