If you were to sit down right now to make a list of everything you need to do, ever, I’m guessing you probably wouldn’t be able to cross it all off by this time tomorrow.
Or even the day after.
When it comes to To-Do lists, most of us know we must be realistic.
The best course of action is generally to work out what’s most important, then to allocate tasks to the amount of time you have available.
This may seem obvious.
But why don’t we adopt a similar approach when it comes to tackling our concerns and anxieties?
Instead of working out a kind of priority list for worries, it’s very easy to fret about everything, all the time.
If you have too many physical tasks to do, you’ll probably have had that experience of actually getting nothing done.
The same can be true for worries.
If you try to think everything through at once you usually just end up in thought soup.
I’m sure there are lots of things on your mind at the moment, so rather than spending yet another day with them all racing around your head at once, why not prioritise?
Thinking things through one at a time could mean you’ll bring some clarity to your life.
Worth a try, anyway.
