    1)   Say No

    So frequently we say, “YES” to friends, family and co-workers when they come asking for help, before consulting our calendar. The truth is, nothing is worse than saying, “YES” and not following through or skimping out on other commitments because we’re stretched too thin. Know your limits. Leave yourself some wiggle room. Say “NO!” Click here for more tips on how to say “NO” without all the guilt.

    2)   Use Technology

    3)   Take Action

    Many times we spend hours thinking about how we’ll solve a problem, instead of just taking action. In reality, we can’t predict the future. Sometimes the best course of action is just that – ACTION! Let go and accept that you’ll never be in complete control. By taking action, you’ll know if you’re on the right track faster and the stress of decision-making will have passed. Click here for more inspiration.

    4)   Be A Uni-Tasker

    The importance of multitasking has been exaggerated in the last twenty odd years, but there’s really no such thing as multitasking. You can only do one thing at a time; the other option being to, quickly move back and forth from one task to another. Recent studies have shown that the best way to get things done is to focus. Turn unnecessary distractions off and do one thing at a time. Click here for more on uni-tasking.

    5)   Plan Meals

    Food fuels both the body and mind. If you don’t eat well, you won’t live well. Research has shown that a lack of certain vitamins and nutrients will even slow brain development. So, what’s the solution? Planning.  In order to stay healthy, you need fruits, vegetables, whole grains and protein every single day. Planning not only keeps you healthy, but saves you time too.
