31 Days :: Day 21 – Mind Over Matter

In the last few years I’ve noticed a pattern about myself.  When I have a lot of things on my plate, I start to stress out about all the things I need to get done.  In fact, oftentimes I get myself so worked up that I actually can’t even get to the first thing on my list.  I become paralyzed by the overwhelming list of things to do.

Not very productive, right?

I have been practicing a solution to this that is quite simple, but works great.  Instead of dwelling on the totality of all that I have to do, I make a list and focus on completing one thing at a time.  Before I know it, I’m no longer stressed and things are getting crossed off of my list.

Also, separate but somewhat related, I ran across this TED talk by Kelly McGonigal that provides a great perspective on stress.  Check it out!
