Stressed out managers: try this one-hour stress plan by Dr. Jeremy Sutton (modified from Bregman, 2014)
1️⃣ Write a list of everything urgent you must do
2️⃣ Spend 15 minutes focusing on as many fast, small tasks as possible. Tick or cross them off as you go.
3️⃣ Spend 35 minutes focusing on the most challenging task without interruption (ignore emails, calls, etc.)
4️⃣ Take a break for ten minutes – ideally away from your desk.
5️⃣ Repeat the process starting at step 1, with the new shorter list of activities.
"Gaining a sense of control and reducing the work list will lower your stress and focus your attention more wisely." ~ Dr. Jeremy Sutton
