Where did the day go?

young woman modern office back painIt’s 5pm and you’re wondering what happened to all those hours in your day. Worse, you feel like you haven’t achieved anything. This can be a major source of stress which frequently results in physical complaints such as headaches, back pain, tight muscles and recurrent illnesses.

Your time-management skills might need some “adjusting”! Here are some tips:
  • Set realistic, measurable goals with a time limit to complete a task
  • Prioritize tasks based on importance (write them down!)
  • Plan ahead by setting up tomorrow’s “to-do” list, to give you peace of mind
  • Divide large tasks into smaller, manageable chunks
  • Stop multitasking, for example check your emails at set times and not every couple of minutes
  • Learn to delegate…and let go
  • Learn to say “no”!
  • Remember to hydrate, take scheduled breaks to move and stretch
  • Schedule time for your weekly chiropractic adjustments to keep your body functioning optimally
