1 Plan your day.Feeling out of control is an incredible source of stress. How do you stay in control at work? Each day, create a “To Do” list, and cross off each item as you complete it. If you have appointments, meetings, etc., on a particular day, make sure you put those on your list, too, so you don’t run into any scheduling conflicts.

2 Prioritize. What needs to get done first? Prioritizing your tasks from most to least important will keep you focused on what matters, rather than wasting energy on work that doesn’t need to be done right away.

3 Take a break. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, take a break. It can be a short one, like getting away from your desk for a few minutes and walking outside, or even taking your eyes off that computer screen and stretching at your workstation. Or it can be a longer one, such as using a day or two of vacation time to relax and get away from it all.

4 Don’t be afraid to say no. If an “extra” project comes across your desk, consider your current workload and priorities before accepting the new assignment.

5 Do it right. No matter how busy you are, each task needs to be done right. If not, you’ll end up spending even more time correcting your mistakes.

6 Do a little at a time. When faced with a challenging or time-consuming task, don’t try to complete it all at once. Work on it for small chunks of time during the day (15 minutes or so at a time); before you know it, you’ll be done!

7 Evaluate how you’re spending your time. Keep a diary of everything you do for three days to determine how you’re spending your time. Look for time that can be used more wisely. For example, could you take a bus or train to work and use the commute to catch up on reading? If so, you could free up some time to exercise or spend with family or friends.

8 Don’t be afraid to ask for help. Most companies emphasize teamwork and don’t want their employees to “burn out.” They know an unstressed employee is usually a happy employee, and a happy employee will stick around for the long haul. If you’re having trouble managing your workplace stress, don’t be afraid to talk to your boss about it.

If your average day is a mad rush to get the kids ready for school, run errands, pick the kids up from school, make dinner, get everyone ready for bed, and do a million things in between, when do you find time to exercise? And that’s if you’re a stay-at-home mom. Fortunately, there are a variety of easy exercise solutions that can keep you in shape and motivated regardless of your hectic schedule.

Make the time. If it means waking up an hour earlier than usual to jog or taking more walks around the office, do what it takes to get your body moving on a regular basis. Is exercise important to you? Then make it a priority.

Stick to a schedule. It’s far too easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of all your “other” daily responsibilities and leave exercise out. Schedule time each day to work out, whether at the gym or at home.

Don’t limit yourself. If you think you don’t have the time (or money) to go to a gym, develop an exercise routine at home. These days, all it takes is a mat, an exercise ball and a few light weights (at the most) to tone and shape your body.

Consolidate your workout. Combining multiple exercises simultaneously will save time and burn more calories. The best example of this approach is a step class or aerobic routine that gets the entire body involved.

Find a support system. For many people, self-motivation is a big issue when it comes to starting and sticking to an exercise routine. Enlist a friend, neighbor or family member to exercise with you – or at least hold you accountable.

Get your kids involved. While you’re investing so much time and energy into your children, why not exercise with them? Ride bikes, spend a day at the pool – there are a variety of ways to keep the entire family in shape while teaching them the value of regular exercise. Remember, they learn from your example.

Any parent will tell you that it’s the worst feeling in the world when your child is sick – and you don’t know what’s wrong. Uncertainty and speculation can make for some sleepless nights, even when it’s something seemingly as harmless as a cough. That’s because a cough, while common, can be caused by all manner of things; some fairly benign and some more health-threatening. Here are a few (varied) reasons why your child – or you, for that matter – could be coughing, courtesy of the Mayo Clinic:

Respiratory Tract Infection: A cough is often a symptom of a cold, flu, pneumonia or other infection affecting the upper respiratory tract. Unlike most of the other symptoms associated with these conditions, it can linger for some time, whether because the infection is hanging around or because your airways are still inflamed and sensitive to irritation.

Asthma: The leading cause of chronic cough in children and also common in adults, asthma can also cause wheezing and shortness of breath, although with at least one type of asthma, cough may be the only symptom. As you might expect, asthma-related coughs may be worsened by respiratory infections or other conditions characterized by coughing.

Blood Pressure Drugs: Yes, some children (and many adults, of course) take ACE (angiotensin-converting enzyme) inhibitors, which may cause chronic cough; in fact, it’s estimated that 20 percent of people taking blood pressure drugs develop chronic cough that may linger even after medication is discontinued.

Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease: GERD causes stomach acid to flow back into the esophagus, so the throat and even the lungs can be chronically irritated, the result of which can be chronic coughing.

There are other causes of cough, but keep in mind that an occasional, temporary cough is completely normal; it helps keep your lungs clear of foreign substances, secretions, etc., and helps to prevent infections. It’s the unrelenting cough that deserves a visit to the doctor for further investigation, if nothing else than to rule out anything serious as a causative factor.
