Start Prioritizing Your Tasks

ToDoListIt’s all too easy to feel overwhelmed by your day-to-day life. And if you’re like most people, one of your big stressors is work. In fact, according to a recent survey by the American Psychological Association, work is the second biggest stressor for most people (money being the first).

Even if you love your job, there are probably days when it’s challenging. One of the easiest ways to combat stress at work is to get organized. Take a few minutes at the beginning of each day to determine your priorities—the tasks you must accomplish before work is over for the day. List them in order of importance, and plan how you’ll get them done. Check each task off the list as you complete it, and you’ll feel less stress—not to mention a greater sense of accomplishment at the end of the day.

Try out a Humidifier

Do you wake up to a scratchy throat and dry, tight sinuses? It may mean your home is too dry. Fortunately, there may be a solution—place a humidifier at your bedside. There are many stylish, personal-sized humidifiers on the market. A side benefit: The gentle “white noise” the units give off can help lull you into slumber.

Be sure to use your humidifier correctly. Follow the instructions that come with it, and keep these guidelines in mind:

  • Use distilled water or demineralize tap water with cartridges, cassettes, or filters.
  • Change the water in portable units daily.Humidifier
  • Clean a portable unit every third day. Follow the manufacturer’s directions for cleaning console and furnace-mounted humidifiers.
  • Avoid exceeding 50 percent humidity. Room air that’s too moist encourages the growth of molds and dust mites, which can trigger allergies and asthma. To measure humidity, use your humidifier’s humidistat. Another sign of high humidity is when water condenses on windows, walls, or pictures.
  • If surrounding areas become damp or wet, turn the humidifier down.

Today, consider getting a humidifier to help you get a more comfortable night’s sleep.
