Writing a detailed to do list can really help to ease that debilitating feeling of being overwhelmed. Last year I struggled a lot with anxiety and my sister actually taught me this trick that she uses at work to help her feel like she's in control of things and actually manage her tasks instead of the other way around.

Mark the ones that are priority versus the ones which can be pushed back a little in order to help you actually tick things off the list, and get them done – as opposed to procrastinating and being lazy because the list looks like too much to bare! A few little tricks to help you get started and stop feeling so overwhelmed all the time are:

What You'll Need

  • Any piece of paper will do - why paper? because it is so satisfying physically crossing something off your to do list

What You'll Do

  • Always put something on your to do list which will take you two minutes to do so that you can cross it off quickly, giving you the satisfaction and encouragement to keep going!
  • Group yur to do list into categories, ie. house work, office work, personal life etc
  • Prioritise your items: I like to create separate lists so that things don't look to crowded or overwhelming
  • Then you get to crumple the paper up and throw it away!
