Thanks to looming student loan debt, divisive politics, and the general "WTF" nature of 2018, it can be increasingly easy to get swept up in the anxieties that seem to be lurking just about everywhere these days. Add to these sweeping problems an ever-growing to-do list, and you're probably completely overwhelmed. I can't pay your student loans for you, nor can I singlehandedly fix the political landscape, but some expert tips for how to get better at multitasking might be just the thing to take one more worry off your plate.
And, just so you know, stress really is something that everyone is dealing with in this day and age.
