Simplify your day by unitasking instead of multitasking

Nine tips on being present and enjoying the moment

7.)  Group similar activities. For example, make all of your phone calls in one block of time, all your paper work in another and all your errands in still another.

8.)  Jot down new ideas on a sticky note, file it away for later, and get back to what you were doing.  You won’t forget that information, and it won’t be cluttering up your mind.

9.)  Determine if “urgent tasks” that are demanded of you are truly “important tasks.” It may be necessary to kindly tell others that you need to finish the present task uninterrupted and then you’ll be able to focus fully on their request. You’ll be able to do a better job that way.

Unfortunately multitasking has been sold hook, line, and sinker to supermoms. Give unitasking a try.  You will probably end up getting more done, enhance the quality of your work, feel more satisfaction and a lot less stress!
