So how do you release the stress of juggling too many tasks at the same time and remain productive? Generally speaking, if you can't relax, you can't release the stress of the situation. On the Meditation Warrior website, there is an article called Relaxation First.
This relaxation technique is based on focusing on each part of the body and consciously releasing tension through alternating muscle tension and release. The exercise is explained and the page also contains an audio of the relaxation technique for you to try.
Maybe time is compressing. I know my days don't seem to be as long as they were in my 20's. And while there are days that feel very productive, often the day has almost escaped before I have checked off the last "to do." Or maybe my "to do" list is too long.
Regardless, it has been said that 90% of all disease and illness is either caused by or complicated by stress. Focus on stress reduction and your body will begin to heal itself. And this all starts with relaxation.
