It's also a good thing to simply stop from time to time and do absolutely nothing for ten minutes. It's one of life's paradoxes that the more we get done, the more we often find to do. I've found that cutting down on multitasking, rather than increasing it, has made me feel less stressed. Multitasking is one of women's strengths but it can make us feel over-responsible in a household. Focussing less on finishing things - for example starting several tasks rather than completing one - can help too.
