PRIORTIZE AND ORGANISE
Every day we are provided with an overwhelming task list or a work that needs to be completed in the shortest amount of time and there is no feasible escape from this as it is a new normal and it is expected, so how to solve this puzzle, let us start by quoting a famous saying
“You cannot eat the Entire elephant in one go! “
What it means that you need to break the entire task list into small manageable chunks, that you can manage effectively.
Prioritize your most important task earlier in a day, once you do that your mind is organized in achieving your daily goals throughout the day, you will be more focused and while doing that also plot to take regular breaks throughout your day, Taking the break will refresh your mind and gives you more creative ideas on how to reach to a certain goal.
Also always remember never MAJOR minor THINGS, if the task is easy and you think you can delegate the task to someone else, then do it, do not necessarily stress yourself for the minor task if you can outsource it.
EAT, SLEEP AND EXERCISE
This one is particularly vital for everyone having a working pressure, All the CEO’s of big enterprises endorse this cycle of
EAT (Properly 3 times a Day) SLEEP (At least 8 hours) and EXERCISE (Minimum 30 mins) and they do it too.
Eating healthy food provides you energy and focus, that you need to for your day. Make sure you're eating fresh, healthy food like lean proteins, vegetables, and healthy carbs, & drinking plenty of water. When you go to bed make sure you sleep at least 8 hours & try to keep your mobile phone away from your reach and refrain checking it should you get up during your sleeping hours as you might glue back to it and lose precious hours of sleep!
Also set aside time for 30 mins exercise every day which is sufficient to maintain a healthy lifestyle, just doing these 3 things properly.

IDENTIFY & ACTION ON YOUR BAD HABITS
Let us start by saying that don’t burn the candle on both the ends, 21st Century technology has equipped us with laptops and smartphones which gives an impression to employers that we are available 24x7 because your employer only pays for 9 hours of your time so first and foremost stop responding to emails after you are in bed. Set an expectation with your manager about your work-life balance. Human beings are not invincible, we are vulnerable and get burned out due to excessive pressure.
You have to identify and act on your bad habits be it responding to work-related queries in the middle of the night or trying to be perfect at all task in hand and losing your mind when a small task or work details goes haywire.
You need to be in control as an excess of everything is bad for your physical and mental health.
