What a Guy Who Ate an Entire Airplane Teaches Us About Stress

Of all the believe-it-or-not, world record stunts out there, one of the most intriguing and sensory-grating examples can teach us some important lessons about stress.

Meet Michel Lotito, aka “Mr. Eats All”, known for showing off his proclivity towards eating objects — light bulbs, shopping carts, and chandeliers. His largest feat was a Cessna 150 aircraft, bringing his lifetime tally of metal (and perhaps mental) mayhem to nine tons.

This perplexing behavior was not just a case of extreme pica (an eating disorder characterized by consuming objects that cannot be digested), but one that shows us that we are often capable of things beyond our comprehension (and yes, some pretty bizarre behavior, too!)

Mr. Eats-All apparently went about his quest with careful and deliberate precision, infusing mineral oil to aid him, and making sure he went bit-by-bit in small, manageable chunks. He apparently knew when-to-say-when, and was adept at knowing his maximum threshold. (Perhaps he was an unsuspecting pioneer of portion control, even).

Like our stomachs, our brains are constantly involved in a process of digestion. We are required to process gargantuan amounts of information, massive changes and constant stimulation — flooding our circuits and leaving us reeling. This can lead to some serious brain indigestion.

Unlike Mr. Eats-All, we can’t manufacture a perfectly controlled system of digesting the myriad of whopper’s that come into play and overload our minds. But there’s still something to learn from this example of culinary chaos:

1. We are capable of digesting difficult things. Even when pierced with life’s stingers, we are wired for resilience and have incredible capacity for healing — even when life delivers blows that puncture our dreams and disrupt our sense of stability and happiness. Life may be tough, but so are we.

2. We need to know our maximum threshold. Each day is filled with a never-ending to-do list. There’s only so much that can be digested within our daily span. Avoid trying to solve all of your problems at once, and instead carve out space to regroup. Know when to say when.

3. We benefit from setting strategic goals. It’s unlikely that we can control the heaping portions of stress we experience — they usually clobber us all at once, creeping over our wall of coping. We can learn to prioritize what needs our attention and break action steps into small bites. Step by step, chunk by chunk, we’ll get there.

4. Progress takes time. Rome wasn’t built in a day. And apparently, the airplane to fly there wasn’t eaten in a day, either. What makes us think we can work through challenges or meet our goals all in one fell swoop? If we rush, we might risk unfavorable outcomes. A sense of urgency can be helpful, but keep expectations realistic.

2015-08-21-1440115811-5489386-Spoonfulofsugar.jpg

We all need a little mineral oil, or as Mary Poppins called for — a spoonful of sugar to make the medicine go down. We all need help with digesting what’s at hand. Search for your remedies. Look around for internal resources (like humor, faith, creativity) and external resources (like trusted friends, colleagues or mentors) to help keep you from chronic brain indigestion. We can’t always change what we have to digest, but can focus on how we digest for greater health and happiness.

When the Stress Comes to a Head

I have held on to this post for over six weeks, but after listening to Arianna Huffington discuss her “a ha” moment — I decided to share mine. Sometimes we become so enthralled in our work lives it takes over our entire being, and that is not how life is meant to be lived. Arianna stated she wanted us to learn from her experience the importance of de-stressing our lives, and I want the same for all of you. Do not end up like me, in tears and pain, learn from me. You do not have to feel the physical pain to learn, trust me. It’s why I am sharing.

For the last five months I have been questioning the next phase in my life and career. I have always known this summer would be a crossroads, but I never thought I would reach this crossroads in this manner. But alas, I am here.

It all began with my wok life going to shit. A new responsibility ended up being an anxiety attack waiting to happen. The new work was so tedious and demanding, I found myself going to work early or staying late every day. Seeing my email never move from 50 unread after a full day of responding became daunting. I found myself angry every day, feeling like I had been punished for my good work with work I hated, on top of my general responsibilities (oh and of course with no new wage).

The stress came to a head on a Tuesday not too long ago. It had been about two months that I had been feeling this pain in my chest, a pain that had been scaring me. So I finally decided to tell my grandmother, an RN, what I had been feeling. After explaining the pain had spread to my left arm, she said, “Baby, that doesn’t sound good, you need to go to a doctor.” So I listened and called my doctor to make an appointment, but after listing my symptoms, I was told I needed to go to the hospital.

Then I was really scared…

The only thing rushing through my mind was “I can’t leave here yet. I can’t be sick — just give me more time.” The more my mind raced, the more I ached and each pain scared me 10 times more than the last.

But it was ME. I had sent my body into this turmoil, along with some heartburn. My consistent disdain and disgust with my work situation and the added stress the new work had caused gave me such bad anxiety I was having palpations.

My family had been telling me not to stress, but that is easier said than done. I am a worrier — that is my crazy. Thinking of all of the possibilities all the time coupled with being so upset and angry at my situation, watching the emails rain in every day, took my worry to a new level. It wasn’t just can I get out? — but when? Will it be soon?

But that day I finally said forget it, I cannot let this bother me like this. Yes, I loved my job — but the love was now gone and honestly it hurt. But you cannot stay at a job forever, especially not at my age, it is all about progression.

A week after all of this my best friend was hit in a hit and run. Quickly life was put into perspective. There’s no time to devote to emotion that does nothing but harm you. There’s no time to be so stressed you can’t enjoy the one life you have to live.

I am still here (and at my organization) and still learning. The battle with anxiety and stress is an uphill battle, but it is up to us to ensure that we do not let it take us down. Listen to your body and do not let stress take you down. Work is just that — work. And if you drop dead tomorrow, your job will have your position up by the end of the week.

It’s only 40 or 50 out of 168 hours a week for a reason.

The 3 Biggest Things I Wish I Didn’t Stress Over in High School

High school: A place where you spend four vital years learning, making friends, and finding yourself. I went to Archbishop Molloy, a Marist high school in Queens, New York. I loved my high school, I made the best of friends that I’m still close with today, I had great teachers who I still reach out to for advice and I learned lessons not only that I used inside the classroom but throughout the rest of my life. I credit my high school for helping shape me to be the person who I am today.

However, even though I loved high school, I wouldn’t go back and do it again. Don’t get me wrong — I had a lot of great times and great memories, but there were also many days I spent stressing over the littlest things. I wish I could go back to myself at 14 and say, “A few years from now, none of the things that you spend time worrying about will matter.”

Boys. My sophomore year of high school I remember many nights of sitting in my room, upset and listening to Taylor Swift’s “Fifteen.” It seemed like having a boyfriend was the best thing in the world, and I was never a part of that exclusive “I have a boyfriend club.” I would see classmates having a boyfriend and I would think that having a boyfriend would magically make all my problems go away. Everyone was so happy in their relationships, that I felt like total loser for never having a boyfriend in high school. I can’t believe I spent so much time wondering if a boy had noticed me.

Growing up, I realized that I wasn’t going to find the love of my life in high school, and that having a boyfriend while I’m trying to focus on my grades would’ve just been a distraction. I also wasn’t ready for a mature relationship and the long-term relationship that I wanted wasn’t found in high school. The boys that I had crushes on totally aren’t my type anymore — it was just the idea of having a boyfriend that excited me. Don’t let the thought of having a boyfriend or a significant other take you away from things that really matter. Also, once you’re out of high school there are so many people out there who are waiting to meet you!

Fitting in. It doesn’t matter what people think about you, I repeat: It doesn’t matter what people think about you. I wanted every single person to like me, and only now do I realize, that’s impossible. No matter how nice you are or how much you try, there will always be someone who doesn’t like you. I cared so much about what other people thought about me, that I started losing who I was. I would shop at certain clothing stores because other girls in my grade were, or I’d want the latest technology because everyone else had it. It was when I started being honest with myself,2015-06-19-1434725827-2571197-183890_10150326746758939_2572568_n.jpg and showing people who I truly was that I started meeting people who liked me for who I was — and not who I was trying to be. And eight years later, they are still my best friends who I road trip to go see Taylor Swift in concert with. Be confident in the person that you are, and you’ll find people who like you for just being you.

Not getting picked for things. High school can be competitive, trying out for sports teams, leadership positions in clubs and comparing test scores. I remember that I didn’t get picked for a leadership position in high school that I desperately wanted and I was devastated. I thought, “What’s wrong with me? Why am I not good enough?” I would beat myself up over the fact that other people got this position and I didn’t.

That leadership position clearly wasn’t meant for me at that time. I was able to find another club in my high school that I absolutely loved, and if I had gotten the other position I wouldn’t have ever even considered joining it. You may not get the spot on the sports team or get the highest test score in your class, or get that leadership position. But the good thing about high school is that there are a lot of other clubs you can get involved in, and if not, you can always start your own. This is something that stayed with me throughout my life — that if I didn’t get something that I really wanted, I would just say it wasn’t meant for me and that something better is in store.

2015-06-19-1434725579-1108699-251271_10150274148328939_6122165_n.jpg When I was in middle school I always thought high school was going to be like my favorite television shows like One Tree Hill, Laguna Beach and Degrassi. But rest assure high school was nothing like what I saw on TV and that’s probably a good thing because the shows had a lot of drama.

Your high school experience is what you make of it. Meet as many people as you can, get involved and join a club, raise your hand and ask questions and most importantly, have fun. Your high school days are days that you will never be able to get back. It goes by pretty fast. One day you’re nervous walking into the first day of high school and the next you’re walking on stage to get your high school diploma.

Most people feel that they suffer from stress at some time or another, whether in the home, the workplace, within the family or amongst colleagues or friends. It has almost become part of living in today’s fast-paced world. Thoroughly researched and written in an accessible style, Sleep – The CommonSense Approach looks at stress in all its forms. The author Brenda O’Hanlon believes that it is not so much a question of how to rid our lives of stress, but how to harness it, exploit it and control it. She recognises that more often than not, stress can be managed by the individual. She provides a useful checklist to assess your level of stress and goes on to discuss stress management, relaxation techniques, nutrition and diet, medication and other remedies. Lists of useful addresses and further reading are also included. The CommonSense Approach series is a series of self-help guides that provide practical and sound ways to deal with many of life’s common complaints. Each book in the series is written for the layperson, and adopts a commonsense approach to the many questions surrounding a particular topic. It explains what the complaint is, how and why it occurs, and what can be done about it. It includes advice on helping ourselves, and information on where to go for further help. It encourages us to take responsibility for our own health, to be sensible and not always to rely on medical intervention for every ill.

5 Tricks From Mom That Will Help You Manage Stress

by Terri Trespicio

Mother’s Day rightly brings with it a lot of flowers, candy, handmade cards, and commercials starring well-scrubbed, radiant moms looking adoringly at their kids. This is all lovely and good, but it’s not the full picture of motherhood, is it?

The other side of the coin is the go-clean-your-room, do-your-homework, eat-your veggies mothering. The part of motherhood that pushes you to do things that you might not want to do, but that she knows is better for you. It’s this unyielding authority that insists you do better, be better, try harder. You know she’s right, and you love her for it, even if you don’t always love her the moment she says it.

These days you may not have anyone who both nurtures and nags you like your own mother (maybe you miss it, or maybe she still does it!), but that’s exactly the combination you need as you work to manage your stress and boost your health. In other words, you need to be your own mom, and heal your own stress in the process. Here’s how.

Practice patience. Self-improvement is hard enough as it is; it doesn’t need to come from a punishing or judgmental place. Imagine a mom at bath time, watching her toddler try, over and over again, to pour water from one measuring cup into another, and missing, again and again. She watches, patiently and with calm presence, fully believing in her child’s ability to learn and grow over time. She wipes up spilled water, hands the measuring cup back to the kid when he drops it, and laughs with delight when he manages the feat.

Celebrate small successes. Your milestones may not be as awesome as a kid’s first step or first bike ride without training wheels, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t raise the roof when you do achieve. I know, it’s terribly easy to blow past successes; there’s always another mountain to climb. Make it second nature to stop and be thrilled with yourself–you’ll boost and reinforce your own confidence.

Do it because I said so. Mom didn’t need a better excuse than that, and neither do you. Tempted to ditch cycling? Nope. You signed up for class, you show up for class. Want to eat a cupcake for lunch instead of some greens? Not on my watch. Want to snap at a co-worker just because you’re feeling frustrated? You know better than to take your stress out on someone who works just as hard as you do. When you feel yourself giving in to a whiny inner child, call on that simple reason and use it to do what you know is better for you, your health, and your relationships.

Make it a habit. You know mom’s habits a little too well. Because she did the same thing and maybe still does it–for decades on end. Whether it’s the way she does her hair or makes tea. Take a cue from mom and apply habitual behavior to your own self-care. No way you’re rushing mom through her bath, right? Block out time in your schedule–even ten minutes works–for an activity that makes you feel happy, or safe, or confident, and stick by it.

Adopt a mom-like slogan. “Could be worse.” “Early bird gets the worm.” “If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all.” Oy, our mothers with their cliched, go-to sayings. And yet they function as a kind of self-strengthening shorthand for parents–and for you as you parent your stressful self. So do that for yourself. Give yourself a hokey mantra to counteract the urge to eat more cookies, watch more tv, pick another fight (and use it often!).

Every mother knows what it is to feel out of energy and patience. But a mother never runs out of love; it’s self-replenishing. This week, treat yourself to that same patience and support, the kind you have shown to your own friends and family, to help you ease the negative effects of stress. This Mother’s Day, celebrate the mom (or mom-like people) in your life, and all the wisdom that she handed down to you.

And while you’re at it, put yourself to some use, would you, and take the garbage out.

How Stress Can Be a Very Good Thing

Feeling stress in your everyday life? Join the crowd. There’s no doubt that we face an enormous number of stresses in day-to-day living, whether it be at work, in the home, or anywhere in between. In fact, a recent poll showed that more than one in every four Americans, almost 60 million people, said they experienced a great deal of stress in the previous month alone.

The funny thing, though, is as much as we may believe that the stresses we face are more numerous or severe than in generations past, people have been living extremely stressful lives for thousands of years. Think the hunter-gatherers didn’t feel the stress of chasing down wild beasts for survival? That our counterparts from a century ago, struggling through economic depression, didn’t consider theirs to be the “Age of Anxiety”?

What you might find suprising is that contrary to popular belief, some stress can actually be a good thing.

What Is Stress, and How Can It Help Us?

Stress, when harnessed properly, can have numerous benefits for the body and mind. But in order to use stress to our advantage, it’s important first to understand what exactly causes it and, if everyone tells us to avoid it, how it can actually help us.

When we feel stress, our body is sending us a signal about how the pressures we experience affect us physically and mentally. Much like a caveman running from a wooly mammoth, stress triggers a “fight or flight” response that turns on parts of our nervous system and causes us to make certain hormones. You know the feeling — heart racing, palms sweaty, eyes wide open, heightened awareness. Ever been in a dangerous situation and all of a sudden felt like you could lift a car or outrun a chasing dog? It’s actually your body and mind responding to stress: In the end, we get a turbo boost of speed, strength, and senses that can be an incredible advantage in our everyday lives.

In fact, there actually are a few ways that stress, in moderation, can help us on an everyday basis.

1. Stress Can Sharpen Your Memory
Did you ever notice that sometimes when you are stressed, your memory seems to improve? Remember that big test you aced where the answers seemed to come out of nowhere? That’s one way your brain responds to stress, and it’s because of stress hormones that increase your alertness when it’s most needed. Occasional stress can help keep you focused and improve your recall, which can be a plus when cramming for that test or preparing for an important presentation at work. But just as with anything else, only so much stress can actually help. Too much of it over an extended period of time can make your mind foggy and give you trouble recalling even the most basic of things. Ever wonder how 9-1-1 developed for an emergency? Partly because under severe stress, research showed people could only remember three numbers. Just watch contestants on a game quiz show — they’re not acting when they seem to get a simple answer wrong — too much stress stops their brain from recalling some facts.

2. Stress Can Help Boost Your Immune System
You need a healthy immune system to help fight off infections and disease, and believe it or not, the right kind of stress can actually help your body’s defenses against illness. When you get sick, stress causes you to make hormones that battle threats to your health. And this kind of stress is particularly effective when at the early stages of an illness, when your body needs help the most. Now, it is true your immune system can only handle so much stress: If it lasts too long, these hormones can overwhelm your body and actually decrease your immunity. But that initial burst of stress is an asset when your immune system when you’re the most vulnerable: Right when your body faces a threat.

3. Stress Can Help You Get a Leg Up at Work
I know — you’re thinking, “work is what causes my stress!” Well, successful employees turn stress into positive energy and motivation rather than letting it consume them. Ever notice that you get the least amount done on days where you have the fewest deadlines? Too little stress at the workplace can lead to complacency and affect how much you actually get done. When you take risks and choose to attack hurdles at work, it helps your mental toughness and self-confidence. And these are qualities that can increase your marketability and promotion opportunities. Manage the stress and you will get an advantage over colleagues who let stress overwhelm them.

4. Stress Can Make Your Life More Interesting
To this point, we’ve described stress a survival tool, but what about the stress we feel when we actually choose to take on a challenge? Think about some stressful situations that we consciously put ourselves in to make life more interesting and enjoyable. Challenges like asking someone out on a first date, facing and conquering a known fear, interacting with people you’ve never met, even learning something completely new. These may not immediately come to mind when you think of stressors — and maybe that’s because of the positive outcomes that come from them — but they’re the types that can help you achieve fulfillment, health, and happiness.

Recognize Your Stressors and Use Them to Your Advantage

Although stress can be a true positive, don’t forget that too much of anything is rarely a good thing. It’s true that small bursts — occasional episodes for short periods of time — can provide great benefits, but it’s never a good idea to expose yourself to long-term stress, which is a setup for emotional and physical illness. Instead, recognize the stressors in your life, whether self-chosen or from outside sources, and use the energy that your body produces to your advantage.

So while we may not be the first generation to have faced this amount of stress, we may be the first with the knowledge to turn what has always been considered a negative into a true positive.

7 Ways Stress Ruins Your Life and 5 Steps That Start to Turn It Around

We think our problems produce the stress we experience, but it’s actually the reverse. Stress causes most of our troubles — from money, family, and work problems, to physical and mental health issues. In working with private and corporate clients, I’ve found that most people realize that stress is harmful, but few understand it as causal… at least until I review the following research findings with them:

Stress and money: When our mind is preoccupied with fears of financial scarcity, it activates stress reactions, releasing stress hormones that dampen the brain’s executive functions. This leads to a decline in fluid intelligence, which is the “smarts” the higher brain generates to solve money problems. [1]

Stress and bad decisions: The greater the stress, the greater the likelihood you’ll make bad decisions at home and at work. Knee-jerk reactions can cause you to make risky or premature decisions. You’ll drop long-range goals for immediate survival needs, and every day you’ll wonder why you keep falling behind instead of getting ahead. [2]

Stress and declining performance: Stress hormones shrink higher brain networks and break the connections between them. This inhibits you from maximizing your full measure of talent and sustaining peak performance. [3] You’ll have a good day now and then, but your brain won’t be able to generate your best day every day.

Stress and dampened creativity: Your capacity for creative insight and innovation is thwarted by stress. [4] Those sudden “aha” moments of insight, inspiration, and comprehension will be few and far between.

Stress and emotional negativity: Stress locks you into fight, flight, or freeze reactions. Your emotional set point switches to negative, predisposing you to anxiety, anger, aggression, paranoia, and depression. [5]

Stress and family: The greater the stress, the more reactive you’ll be to the normal ups and downs at home. You and your partner will argue, criticize, blame, and withhold affection, not realizing that stress is distorting how you see the relationship. Stress hormones also lower sex drive, adding to the estrangement. [6]

Stress and health: Chronic stress impairs the immune system. It wreaks havoc on the cardiovascular system. It damages chromosomes prematurely aging your body and causing the production of cancer. It kills brain cells, and if left unchecked, can eventually kill you. [7] If you add up all the deaths from stress-related illnesses, you have our No. 1 killer.

Obviously, if you want a healthy, happy and successful life, ending stress belongs at the top of your to-do list. Yet 83 percent of us are doing nothing about it. [8] Too often, the wake-up call comes on the gurney in the emergency room. Make no mistake, stress is life-threatening serious. “It is not something that maybe someday you should do something about,” says Carol Shively of Stanford. “You need to attend to it today.” [9]

There is a solution

If you have a problem with stress, it’s because genetics and hard knocks have wired you for a hyperactive stress response system. There is a solution to stress that is based on the capacity of the human brain to: a) rewire primitive neural circuits that habituate stress reactions, and b) stimulate the growth of higher brain networks that enable you to succeed fully. The process of rewiring, called neuroplasticity, is surprisingly simple. It’s achieved through a specific shift in mindset. Norman Doige of Columbia University calls neuroplasticity “the single most important change in our understanding of the human brain in 400 years.” [10]

Neuroplasticity works in real life situations, where stress abounds. It’s been studied in high pressure corporations and found to achieve impressive results in increasing morale and productivity in previously unproductive groups. [11] In an independent evaluation of a training my firm conducted at Wells Fargo, more than 300 managers making a similar shift experienced a significant improvement in their level of stress, job performance, creativity, and personal relationships… all in three weeks. [12] Who doesn’t want those outcomes? It starts with making stress a priority.

5 steps that start to turn it around

If you’re one of the 83 percent who are procrastinating, here are five simple neuroplastic steps that can get your mindset moving in the right direction:

1: Bust Stressful-Provoking Thoughts: Be aware all day of stress-provoking thoughts as they occur. Tell yourself: These thoughts are in me, not in reality. Then refuse to believe the stressful thought and see what happens to your experience. An anxious thought not believed doesn’t turn into stress.

2: Stop Worrying (The Clear Button): Imagine there is a button at the center of your palm that, when pushed, signals the brain to stop worrying. Keep pressing the button while you slowly count to three, thinking of each number as a color. As you exhale on the final breath, let your mind go completely and relax into the present moment. Repeat the process until your worries are gone.

3: Start Each Day in Quiet: Set aside five minutes first thing each morning to frame a positive mindset. Feel appreciation for the gift of another day of life. Set your intention to have a rewarding day. Commit yourself to being at peace on the inside, regardless of what happens on the outside.

4: Take Regular Breaks: A 15-20 minute break every two hours allows your brain to rebound. So, every two hours step away from your work and go outside or to a window. Watch the clouds pass, the wind blow, or the sun shine, allowing your mind to grow quiet and to connect with life.

5: Count Your Blessings: Once a week, at bedtime, recall three things that happened during the previous week for which you are grateful. Then acknowledge three things in your life for which you feel blessed.

Stress and Coping in Child Health

Stress and Coping in Child Health


This volume presents an in-depth examination of current research on pediatric stress and coping and its implications for clinical practice. With contributions from experts at the forefront of pediatric and child health psychology, the volume is divided into three sections. The first two focus on various aspects of research, while the third discusses clinical applications. Each section opens with an in-depth introduction by the editors. Part I, addressing conceptual, developmental, and methodological issues, also covers the role of temperament in understanding coping with pediatric conditions; psychophysiological aspects of stress; and the relevance of taking into account contextual factors in children’s coping responses. Part II focuses on the coping responses of both children and their families faced with either specific medical stressors (invasive medical procedures, anesthesia induction, dental procedures), or chronic illnesses such as diabetes or cancer. Several chapters demonstrate the use of conceptual, multivariate approaches for working with chronic pediatric conditions. Chapters in Part III report on empirically based procedures for clinical intervention. Approaches discussed include: biologically oriented procedures; cognitive and behavioral coping strategies for stressful situations related to chronic illness; and a variety of cognitive, modeling, and environmental coping strategies for children undergoing acutely aversive medical procedures. In addition, this section includes a chapter that illuminates how a sophisticated understanding of context can significantly improve the chances of an intervention’s successful outcome.

One Simple Trick to Dramatically Reduce Stress in 2014

Life rarely perfectly follows a plan.

But that doesn’t mean that you should just give up and not make a plan. It means that you should embrace a realistic expectation of what planning can and can not do for you:

Planning Can Not:

  • Guarantee everything will go perfectly.
  • Make all work fit within the desired estimates.
  • Eliminate all unexpected obstacles.

Planning Can:

  • Give you clarity on your priorities.
  • Reassure you that you’re not forgetting anything.
  • Allow you to get the most important things done on time.

The importance of realistic planning was re-emphasized for me in the completion of my book manuscript — my biggest professional project to date. I would like to share a bit with you about this simple yet very powerful secret to dramatically reduce stress:

On Time is Late
I’m a realistic optimist in the sense that I think very positively but I plan very responsibly. A very simple, yet important principle that I’ve incorporated into my planning is the idea that “on time is late.”

This principle resulted from the fact that I used to plan to do things “on time,” yet then sometimes ended up super stressed out or slightly missing deadlines whenever something unexpected happened.

To solve that problem and reduce my anxiety, I started setting personal deadlines for myself before the actual deadlines. With short, rather predictable projects, that could look like simply making a goal to get things done the day before they’re due. But with larger, more complex projects, like my book, that means pushing myself to try to get everything done far in advance of when it is due.

For instance, I finished writing my manuscript two and a half weeks before my deadline so that I would have a few weeks to go back through and do the style edits and proofreading. And I’m so glad that I did! This was my first book writing project, and I vastly underestimated how long it would take me to do all of the fine tuning and tweaks. But because I gave myself extra time and a personal deadline before my “real” one, I had the time to do what needed to be done and even to delegate some of the work.

This one mental shift in your approach to planning could dramatically decrease your stress levels. Here are some ideas of how to apply the concept of “on time is late” in other areas of your life:

  • Prepare for meetings the day before they happen, including reviewing notes, location and any items you need to bring.
  • Before you go to the grocery store, look out over the entire week to see if there are any gatherings like a BBQ or a birthday party that require some special food purchases.
  • When you have a special event that requires a gift, like a wedding, put time into your calendar to shop for the gift on the next possible free weekend or evening. You want to avoid that last-minute panic at Bed Bath & Beyond just minutes before the bride walks down the aisle.
  • If you have people working for you, delegate projects to them as soon as they come into your inbox instead of waiting until it’s too late to pass them off.
  • Plan on finishing any large projects like presentations or creative projects at least a couple of days before they are actually due so you have a buffer and time to “sit” on them.
  • If you need to leave the house at a certain time, get completely ready first and then work on optional activities.
  • When you have a big trip, go through a checklist like this one at least a week before you leave.
  • If it’s very important you arrive somewhere on time that’s very far away, try to arrive the night before. If it’s very important you arrive somewhere on time that’s near, give yourself at least a 30 minute buffer unless you’re in a big city in which you’ll want to plan even more time.

Aiming for early will play a dramatic role in helping you to achieve more success with less stress!
