Sticker charts are not just for little kids and chores. Choose something you want to do every single day, buy a package of stars or smiley faces, and put a chart where you can't miss it. (Mine is on the bathroom mirror.)

If I stack my desk with all of my in-progress, or to-be-started projects, looking at it all stresses me out. To reduce the stress, I keep a to-do list on the desk, but I put all of the papers, supplies, etc. out of sight in a drawer or closet. I only have my active project (bill paying, crafts, whatever) out in plain sight.
Since I'm very much an "out of sight, out of mind" person, I try to do 2 things: 1) keep unhealthy foods, negative thinking "out of sight" 2) keep healthy foods, uplifting quotes, motivating items, helpful books/magazines, etc. "in sight" Daily visual reminders really help me stay on track.
