Meditate and exercise. When pressure mounts, leaders often focus their priority on achievement and neglect their well-being. Meditation and exercise boost stress tolerance and optimism, both of which help you to refocus attention and manage competing priorities.

Ensure proper rest and community engagement. Use flexibility to ensure you receive proper sleep to help re-frame challenging situations.  Leverage interpersonal relationships and social responsibility to participate in community engagements that buffer the effects of competing priorities.
