    In your situation, I'd pray about it first. Then, probably, I'd take a day off, and go to a calm place, to think, pray and check the options I had to organize things up.

    Nothin works better for me than going on some long trip or bike ride without phone in nature or something

    This might be an annoying answer, but the only real way to fix what you're talking about is to remove some of things from your plate.

    There are plenty of other methods people can suggest for you to try, but honestly, I feel like they are all just bandaids. At the end of the day, if you have too much on your plate, you need to find a way to take some of it off.

    I realize that isn't always possible in every situation, but I think it's pretty rare for someone to be in the kind of situation that would not allow them to remove anything at all from their plate. Most average people are doing far too much and could stand to remove a few things. You might not think it's possible for you, but I would urge you to really look at everything on your plate realistically and seriously consider what you can cut out.

    I am very much the kind of person who takes on too much and then gets stressed out about it over time, and I know how hard it is to accept that and let go of some things. But sometimes it's necessary. Take care of yourself.

    The best way for me is physical activity, whatever that is. However make sure that while you are at it you focus completely on it. Meditation can also help a lot, I recommend "Medito" for Android and iOS.
