Hi. The key to not getting stressed out is recognizing what you have control over, and what you do not.
Focus on what you CAN control. Do NOT worry much about what you cannot control. Worrying about what you cannot control clearly wastes energy - - and we need our energy to get done that we have control over.
Prioritize what you have to do, and target dates and/or times of when you will do each. Write out somewhat short (not overwhelmingly long) lists of what needs to be done will help relieve some stress since it will be on paper and less will be rattling around in your head. Anticipate that you won't get everything done when we would like to. Few of us can do that. Consider it a game to juggle as many things as we can, realizing that sometimes we will miss a ball. No on is perfect, and certainly not all the time!
Making mistakes is part of learning. Living on your own does not mean you have to be out of touch. Family and friends are a support net. You can do this (many others have).
