Break it Up
If you’re facing a week (or a month) full of overwhelmingly huge projects, take some time beforehand to break them up into manageable chunks. Plan to research your presentation on one day, write it the next, and edit after that. Feel like meal planning is getting the best of you? Take 20 minutes on Friday night to come up with meals for the week, an hour on Saturday for grocery shopping, and half an hour on Sunday to cut vegetables and do other prep work. By checking small tasks off your list you’ll feel more accomplished – and you’ll also improve your productivity.
