Lists: An anxiety-reducing tool
I've been writing lists for years. Sticky-notes all over my work space. In small piles and scattered; colours of the rainbow a pretty contrast to my black desk.
A phone upgrade with a note taking app removed the paper all together (almost); shopping lists, reminders and lists were carried with me everywhere my phone and I went.
Starting the business brought back an A4 size notebook (welcome back paper) and with that,
'to do' lists live within those pages.
And what a difference it can make to my state of mind, with or without a list.
Without: anxiety, stress, pressure, feeling a little overwhelmed, unproductive...
With: direction, structure, productivity, a feeling of achievement when something is ticked off...
And less anxiety.
