Some days, it feels like life is throwing priorities at you like snowballs. It’s quite easy to become overwhelmed and unsure of yourself. When everything feels to be too much, write out all of your priorities. Take different colored pens or markers and create a game plan of what projects are easier to complete and what is harder. Focusing on one stress at a time makes things a lot more manageable. Don’t hesitate to mark out your thoughts and ideas! It’s okay to be messy.
Listening to music can also help destress while working. Classical music or other music without words can be very calming and because you’re not listening for lyrics, it is easier to focus on the task at hand.
Certain scents can also help. The ability to smell is the most powerful sense and can completely help affect your mindset through aromatherapy. Lavender, lemon, and peppermint are examples of some smells that can calm you down and leave you feeling more prepared to focus on your priorities and handle your stress.
