A to do list is exactly what it sounds like. It is a list
of things to do.
There is something oddly calming
about a to do list. Whenever I feel overwhelmed
with life and its responsibilities
a to do list and almost immediately begin to feel better. And nothing helps you overcome that overwhelming feeling like the satisfaction
of crossing something off a huge list.
When I am feeling extremely overwhelmed I find it helps to make my lists extremely detail
ed. For instance, instead of making mailing a bill out one entry on my list I divide it into:
1) find envelope
2) address and fill envelope
3) put envelope in mailbox
I know it sounds silly
but sometimes every little cross off helps!
