Give Yourself A Time Cushion.
Joe Piscatella posted:
Many of us simply do not have enough time for our overscheduled and workaholic lives. And feeling perpetually pushed for time often leads to prolonged, chronic stress (or more accurately, distress). Stress can have a terrible impact on heart health. In addition to driving people to skip exercise, eat too much fast food or smoke, it can also cause elevated cholesterol, high blood pressure, blood clotting and arterial inflammation. Help yourself cope by expecting the unexpected; build a cushion into your day. Instead of cramming your schedule, fill it to 80%, leaving 20% for traffic jams, family illness and other surprises. And if there are no surprises you can reward yourself with a little time off!
