7 Tips to Effectively Manage Your Time and Reduce Stress

StressI’m often asked how I’m able to get so much done in my world. I run multiple businesses, host a daily radio show, have an active social life, a happy marriage, well-adjusted pets, and I make time for self nurturing and travel.

While I currently have an amazing team that supports me in my day-to-day operations, there was a time when I was doing it all by myself and I had to apply these seven tools. Consistently. It wasn’t easy. But I promise you it’s well worth it.

So get started today, pick one and run with it – add a new one next week.

  1. Plan your day and set intentions. Take a few minutes every morning to plan your day. Set intentions for the completion of what you need and want to accomplish.
  2. Set goals. In addition to daily activities, make small steps to reach a larger goal.  You will be amazed at how quickly that goal is accomplished.
  3. Remember that mutli-tasking is not the best option. Take the time you need to do a quality job. When you have too many balls in the air, you can’t be good at everything.
  4. It is OK to say NO.  Consider your goals and schedule before you say yes to more tasks.
  5. Delegate.  Evaluate your to-do list for things you can pass on to others. Sometimes it pays to hire someone to help you.
  6. Keep positive. Thoughts are powerful.
  7. Take care of you. Learn relaxation techniques, take breaks and/or pamper yourself.
