I wanted to figure out what tasks I could automate that would free up my stress - my anxiety of having this overwhelmed feeling and pending doom all the time.
By integrating a few automation tools, I realized I could alleviate much of my stress.
For example, I made sure my email program syncs to both my smartphone and desktop so that when I delete or respond to messages, I have access to them from both devices.
I also use pre-written email messages, such as introductions or thank you which I save as signatures in my email program. Then I simply choose that signature, customize it and hit send.
