On 20/20 last
Friday, one topic that was discussed was stress and how it causes us to
age and gain weight. It was assumed that sun was the only cause of
wrinkles, but the truth is, stress also contributes to wrinkles. There
is also evidence the increased stress levels help to raise cortisol
levels that trigger the storage of body fat.
contributor to stress is called NUT, which stands for Nagging,
Unfinished, Tasks. So if your desk is piled high, and you are
constantly behind this is causing stress that is aging you and making
you fat. How can you organize your schedule to manage your chores and
not feel overwhelmed?
There are many
seminar tapes on procrastination and books too. The one thing that
works to getting your tasks complete is to schedule an appointment for a
task that is nagging at you to get completed. Whether it is to take out
the trash at home or a big project that needs multiple sessions to be
completed, you need to schedule your time for job. By planning in
advance you become committed to the task at hand. That means that you
wonít miss out on completing the job at hand.
