Two Minute Rule

If want to lessen the stress you’re having right now then you should try this one. I learned this in our ‘stress management seminar’ and for me, as a student, this two minute rule is very helpful.

The 2-minute Rule:

  • If it would take less than 2 minutes to do something, just do it right away.
  • Two minutes is a guideline, roughly the time it would take to formally defer the action.

For example, right now I’m making an entry for my blog and a thought just pop out reminding me to txt my classmate about our defense tomorrow. I doubt if it will take more than two minutes to txt her so wait… *texting my classmate lol! … “message sent”

Now if I ignore the thought that I have to txt my classmate, there will be two possible outcomes. First, maybe I’ll just forget about it. Second, since I did not make any actions, it will haunt me until I text my classmate. Both outcomes will just give you stress! Right? Since I texted na my classmate, it will lessen the pressure I have right now. Try it! It is very effective!

“Come to me, all who are tired from carrying heavy loads and I will give you rest.”

Papunta na ako sa elevator kanina ng may nangyaring minor injury lang naman. Yung buto or ugat from my left foot biglang tumunog! Super sakit! Wah! Nakakatawa pa ang sumunod na nangyari. Nag hop ako papuntang elevator! Meaning mukha akong naglalaro ng piko! *lol one of the guards saw me pero nag-smile lang sya sa akin. Siguro kala nya naglalaro lang ako. Tsk! Tsk! Super sakit kaya nun. Anyways, good thing my sister was here para lagyan ng *something (forgot kung anong tawag dito?)
