Planning your busy days is helpful in dealing with them.  Functioning without a plan can be a recipe for disaster.  This is how a lot of stress occurs.  Make a plan on what you need to get done that day.  You may even find it helpful to discuss this with your family members so they understand how the day will play out as well.  Maybe you need to explain that it is going to be a soup and sandwiches day or that you will call for pizza when you all arrive home.

Setting goals will help you to get through your busy days without stress.  It is easy to become overwhelmed on busy days, especially if you don’t have any idea on what you need to accomplish.  Setting goals helps you to prioritize what is most important to accomplish that day.  Aim for setting reasonable goals.  If you set them too high or to accomplish too many things, you may find yourself disappointed when you can’t complete them all.

Relax and realize that you are only human.  You can’t be perfect and busy days can make you crazy if you tend to be a perfectionist.  Remind yourself that tomorrow is another day and what you didn’t get done today can be done then.
