This is the fourth part in the series to Organize your life to make sure you won't burn out
3. Map out your stress load
When organizing your calendar use color coding.
Red for things with a hard stress load.
Yellow for things with that cause a normal amount of stress.
And Green for recovery like a day off, positive activities and holidays.
Yellow things are activities or tasks that cause just enough stress that you need a normal evening or weekend rest to recover from them.
Red things are activities or tasks that have a bigger stress load and require a lot of green around them for you to recover.
The idea is also that your calendar should not be too red.
The most of the activities should be yellow when you plan.
Make sure to add Green
How stressful something is depends on you and your personal experiences and preferences.
You need to decide what causes you the most stress and what helps you to recover.
Things that are yellow for others might be red for you, or something that is mostly green, like a vacation trip, can also cause even red stress.
