Reframe problems so they’re positive opportunities.

Think of things that improve your mindset instead of focusing on the negative.

If something or someone is causing you stress, it’s easy to focus on the negative and become even more stressed. To break this vicious cycle, recognize that you’re feeling anxious or overwhelmed, but take a few moments to find something positive.

For example, if a deadline at work is leaving you drained, remind yourself that finishing the project will give you new opportunities.

  • Struggling to turn the problem into a positive one? Sometimes it can be hard to see a silver lining in a stressful situation. In these cases, even thinking about an unrelated thing that makes you happy, like your pet, a good song on the radio, or an upcoming trip, can improve your mood.

Focus on things you can control.

Don’t dwell on the overwhelming number of things you have to do.

If you start worrying about everything that you have to accomplish, you might feel so stressed that you don’t even want to begin! Instead, pick 1 thing to think about and consider how you can deal with it before you begin on your next task.

  • It might help to make a list of the things that you need to do or that are worrying you. Pick 1 thing on the list to work on or even worry about, but don’t let yourself think about the rest of the list.

Organize your time if you’re feeling overwhelmed.

Schedule time to accomplish your goals to manage your time better.

Does it feel like your to-do list just keeps getting longer? Having a packed schedule can make you feel anxious, especially if you procrastinate. Instead of overextending yourself, organize your time so you can achieve your goals.

  • Feel free to say “no” to people if they’re asking you to do things that you don’t have time for.
  • Break up big projects into smaller, manageable tasks so you’re more likely to achieve them.

Avoid or cut out things that cause you stress.

Take control of your environment and avoid people that make you stressed.

Identify what causes you stress—the news, a packed schedule, talking with a certain friend—and find ways to reduce the stress. This might mean turning off the news, saying “no” when people ask you to do things for them, or limiting how much time you spend around a friend that makes you feel overwhelmed.

  • If you’re feeling exhausted from too much going on in your life, try to cut out activities or tasks that aren’t totally necessary. Focus on what you have to do and make time for yourself.
