Psychological Solutions For A Better Life

Plan Your Day / Week

A common phenomenon is that people put too much on their
plate and then get stressed with the responsibilities and commitments they gave
to themselves or other people. The best way to limit stressors that are
needless is by planning your day, week, or even month.  But you need to be realistic. Even when people
plan their day or their week, they often don’t allow for fun and enjoyable
breaks, they don’t consider that activities may take longer than planned or
that they may be stuck in traffic. Leave plenty of time between activities so
that you have room to move.

Planning your week will also allow you to say no to requests
that are difficult for you to fit in or that are beyond what you can reasonably
expect of yourself. Learning to say NO is a major tool in combating stress –
especially for people who have been conditioned to be overly accommodating
others.
