Hello CHCP family, for this week let us try and stay organized so we can reduce our stress levels. Here are some quick tips on how to manage your time better by staying organized.

Get a planner: whether you need a monthly planner or weekly planner get in the habit of writing things down. Being able to see it all laid out will help ease some of the stress and uncertainty. It will also allow the ability to prioritize and visually see deadlines more easily.

Make to-do lists: If you don’t have a planner just making a daily to-do list on a piece of paper can help you stay organized. This can help you visualize what you need to do each day. Visually seeing your tasks helps you envision what you need to accomplish and make sure nothing falls through the cracks.

Learn to prioritize: Look at your to do list and see what needs to be done right away, and what can wait until later. You can prevent panic by taking care of the important things with immediate deadlines first and then tackling those items that can wait.

Reward yourself after completing tasks: Stay motivated by celebrating every task completed. You can do a victory dance, or sneak a chocolate treat.

If you find yourself stressed in your job, maybe a new career is what you need. The College of Health Care Professions (CHCP) offers health care training in a variety of allied health fields such as medical assistingnursing, and more. Read about CHCP programs available at ground campuses and online
