1. Ask for help
Whether it’s contractors, family, or friends: you can’t do it all by yourself. When things get a little too hairy, make sure you ask for help. It’s an easy way to make your life a little less stressful. It takes skill to ask for help properly, so make sure you exercise the talent and don’t abuse it.
2. Put something on the chopping block
Go through your task list and ask yourself if certain things really need to be done or if they align with your long term goals. If you can chop something and everything else would be fine, then do it. This is a quick way to make things easier for yourself.
3. Visualize ease
It might sound strange, but visualizing what “ease” looks like and then applying that feeling to your tasks makes them a lot easier. It’s a simple thing that everyone can do to put your brain in a better place when approaching tasks.
