  • I needed this! Some days can be overwhelming!
  • stressful items in blocks of time and only focus on them for that designated block of time and move to next if multi tasking I have found but may not work for everyone and order of priority essential
  • Good article, but I am not a fan of always multi-tasking. That just causes anxiety for me.
  • Didn't feel this gave any real tips. How about some examples of how to do things. This didn't have any depth to it at all!
  • Reading the comments about permission to not do so much, that is the one I agree with more than the multi-tasking part of the article. I laugh, because I came to this article from one that said to not multi-task - for stress reduction - and yesterday there was one to not multi-task for mindful eating and the day before that was don't multi-task for healthier relationships and more mindful lives. I get to the organization article and it gives ways to multi-task, and I know that we all did multi-task to fit everything in and now we are paying with health problems, shallow relationships and obesity.
  • While this article comes up with some additional ways we can cram more into every day, and be more organized in doing so, I think more people would be helped if we gave ourselves permission *not* to do so much. It should be acceptable to be still for a few moments (or more!) and simply be mindful of where we are, take in the scenery, really focus on the conversation, savor the experience of just being alive. Those moments are the ones we will remember, not the days we spend multi-tasking with our attention fractured among half a dozen things.
  • I think the biggest thing for me in this article is I need to take advantage of the small waiting moments - its true there is a lot of time wasted "waiting" a few 5 minute waitings here and there spend cleaning up instead will end up making more larger free-time chunks in the end = less stress overall

  • I think it's an illusion-and very western--that we'll get more done by being organized and keeping at it. None of these articles ever say, "stop, do nothing, rest, let everything go." Sometimes I don't fee like doing anything. So I don't. But i had to learn to feel okay about it.

  • Good article. But I have to do it my way.
  • Oh my. The subtitle, "Tips to Fit More Into You Day" doesn't set well with me. While I appreciate the fact that most of the tips can perhaps make you more efficient at using your time, I think a better approach might be to ask yourself, "What things can I give up in my day in order to make my life more livable and enjoyable?" It's kind of like clutter your house. Sure, you can always find room for one more thing, but how is all that clutter going to add to your well-being? Better to declutter your home and your schedule, as well.
  • This was an AWESOME article...I made BOLD and printed out this list and have it hanging up in my home, just for me to read thru daily/weekly and do my best to fit ME TIME in my NO TIME!! Thank you :)
  • lively discussion and not much I could argue with! I know the intense pressure I got when multitasking became a lifestyle.... it was almost a compulsion to find ways to get a bunch of things done at the same time. That being said, I also learned that with the higher level of stress, less got done RIGHT, even to a lower standard. I burned food while doing other things, forgot to get back to things that couldn't wait, and timing was always not what I thought it would be. my only relief was to physically remove myself for "me time" and while the brain was still perking with the to do list, at least the body was elsewhere. What recent changes in my life which compelled me to multitask also brought, was a lesson that we need to use what time we have thoughtfully and purposefully.
