Three remedies for busy-day stress — Business Management Daily: Free Reports on Human Resources, Employment Law, Office Management, Office Communication, Office Technology and Small Business Tax Business Management Daily
Some days, the pile of work in your inbox can resemble Mt. Fuji. Even on those days, these tactics can help you climb out from under stress:
Write everything in one place. Keeping a daily log — instead of writing notes and to-dos on a zillion sticky notes — helps you prioritize tasks as well as stay organized.
Build in balance. On busy days, “you time” is the first thing to go. But if you don’t leave time to stretch or think, you’ll be less capable of working at top form. Tip: Set your computer timer for a stretch break every two hours.
Create self-imposed deadlines ahead of the actual ones. Working toward a deadline you’ve set yourself can be less stressful. And even if you’re a bit late reaching your deadline, you’re still ahead of schedule.
Bonus: You earn the reputation of delivering more than what’s expected
