You may have a not-so-healthy view of stress according to a recent study from the American Psychological Association. Ninety percent of adults believe stress can contribute to the development of major illnesses and nearly 40 percent claim their stress levels have increased over the past year.
The study concludes people manage stress in unhealthy ways. Surprisingly, more than 30 percent think stress has little impact on their physical health, and around 30 percent also believe they are doing a good job managing their stress.
The choice is clearly yours to make positive behavioral changes by getting yourself organized.
Here are four time management tips for reducing stress:
- Use a planner to stay on top of deadlines and urgent requests at work
- Keep your monthly calendar updated, so you won’t forget appointments and events
- Make your daily organizer your go-to work journal so you won’t have to worry over remembering something important
- Balance your time by making family time and relaxation activities a priority on your to-do list
