One of the things that can be really stressful is how to find the time to get things done. You have your LONG to do list, job related things, personal activities, social events (well, maybe not that much at the moment, but we will get there again), and the list often goes on and on. As much as I love the to do list, I need also to plan my time properly, more in detail. What I find very helpful is not only write the to do list, but also, plan on WHEN I will do this? Starting with prioritizing the list, what is most important, what can wait for next week and so on. Then I write in my calendar when and how long it will take, so blocking the amount of time it will take. Maybe your calendar will get full too soon, and then you need to look into the list again. Is everything in the list really necessary, or is there anything that can be removed? And things that are not that urgent can be done in 3-4 weeks. Etc etc. In the end you will have planned all your to do’s and you can throw away the list. Feeling in control of time, and that you know exactly what to do and when! Please do not forget to put in the plan your daily yoga practise, your meditation or mindfulness sessions, your time to learn new things, time with the family and loved ones. Everything that you really want to prioritize and put on top of the list. Good luck with planning and getting things done, hopefully without feeling a lot of stress. Take care. Namaste.
