How can I adjust my to-do list to make time for a healthy habit?

ANSWER

When you create your to-do list, pretend you have only about 80% of the time you think you do to get it all done. That can keep you from overloading yourself.

Set clear priorities at the start of each day, so you know what you need to finish by the end of it. Write down everything that “should” get done. Then edit it down to only the top few, and make sure they include your health goals.
