For Your Information


ENDING PROCRASTINATION

If you frequently procrastinate, try the following tips to end this bad habit:

  • Put yourself on a schedule.
  • Break big tasks into smaller ones.
  • Write your tasks down and prioritize them.
  • Do tasks before you can put them off.

BETTER SLEEP

For better sleep, moderate your consumption of caffeine. Avoid caffeine later in the day, especially after 4 or 5 p.m. Drinking a can of cola or cup of coffee in the late afternoon may keep you awake at midnight. Also, beware…sensitivity to caffeine can increase with age.

SIGNS OF OVERWHELMING STRESS

The following are indicators that you should seek professional help for managing stress:

  • You feel trapped, like there's nowhere to turn.
  • You worry excessively and can't concentrate.
  • The way you feel affects your sleep, your eating habits, your job, your relationships, your everyday life.

If you or a family member are feeling overwhelmed by stress, contact your EAP for confidential counseling, referrals or information.
