Practice Manager Tip – Stress Management Before the Holidays

Does this sound like you? It’s 4:00 am and your eyes are wide open. Running through your head are all of the items on your TO DO list that you still haven’t gotten done. It seems that managing your medical practice requires a seemingly never-ending list of priorities that produces stress and anxiety no matter what time of day. Then you start worrying that you need your sleep to have the energy to get all of those tasks done. You toss and turn and start watching the clock – 4:15, 4:40, 5:10 – now it’s less than an hour before the alarm goes off. You start your day stressed out and tired.

Overwhelm leads to procrastination; procrastination becomes paralyzing; before you know it nothing is getting done. This is a vicious cycle. It’s a tug of war of self-sabotage. Putting off these projects is really creating more stress than making the time to get them done.

So, what can you do? Here are a few tips for whittling down that TO DO list and finding stress relief:

If you listen to Thomas Jefferson and “Never put off until tomorrow what you can do today,” you’ll soon be on your way to a better night’s sleep, an empty TO DO list and effective stress management.
