Children’s Activities: Prioritising Workloads

When we have too much to do, we can quickly spiral into feeling:

  • Overwhelmed
  • Suffocated
  • Panic
  • Stress

Which means that we can begin procrastinating, avoiding or starting everything and finishing nothing.

For many, it can feel like ‘everything is a priority’ and all needs to be done NOW. So, how do we help young people to be able to identify the priority level of work, and therefore reduce the stress and overwhelm so that they can be more productive?

What’s the priority?

So, this week, we are sharing our priority planning sheet. A simple way of identifying the importance and urgency of a task and being able to separate them. Important skills for school, the workplace and life!
