Take a few minutes at the end of each working day to prepare for the next. You'll find that you're more in control, more relaxed and able to get more things done.

Take action:
End each day by: making a short list of the top priorities for the next day (start with these things when you return to the office the following morning); clearing your desk of clutter and throwing away trash; filing away documents; going through your notes and saving important numbers/info on your computer or in your diary/address book; checking any unheard messages on your phone; closing all unused documents and programmes on your PC; and wiping your desk clean with a damp cloth or "wet wipe".
