Here's my new list of strategies, Thank you all for your kind replies- all of them were good, but for various reasons I cannot implement them all at once!

in the am
1)make a list of the things to do every day. This helps me with structure.
2)do my academic work. This will help me NOT feel waves of guilt the rest of the day
3)exercise, or at least go on a long walk and a good stretch
4)chores like making my bed and cleaning one area of the house

in the afternoon
5) reading some boring academic stuff
6) another walk- helps with agitation
7) knitting- when I get the urge to eat something it will keep my hands busy
8) nap

in the evening
9) relaxing tea (has relaxing herbs like catnip and chamomile and peppermint
10) take my meds, which include mood stabilizers intended to stop the busy mind. the benzos help too (I have Rx for klonopin and xanax. I take xanax when I don't mind feeling sleepy.
11) write a list of stuff to do tomorrow
12) floss, pluck eyebrows (to minimize picking and other self-injury temptations)
13) shower and nice robe. I need to find my lavender oil. I NEED to clean the bathtub. Actually cleaning the tub/shower will be good exercise too!
14) babblechat. I haven't forgotten all you dear souls!!!
