22 cheap ways for nurses to de-stress

12. Make “To-Do” Lists and Actively Check Off Items

I don’t know about you, but I love to be organized. Even if my “To-Do” list consists of things like “take a shower” and “walk the dog,” I feel like I’ve accomplished something once I’m able to check an item off my list. Try making a “To-Do” list for simple things, like folding laundry and running errands. Each time you complete a task, check it off. The action of crossing something off a list is a tangible way to see how much you’ve accomplished in a day.

Cost: Using a scrap of paper won’t cost you a thing, but you could also splurge for a cute notepad or colored Post-It notes. Don’t want to use paper? Invest in a white board ($5-$12 at your local office supply store) and hang it on the fridge.
