Have you had full days at work with pressure from the bosses? Is your family pulling you in different directions; are your friends wanting you to play and have fun?
Are you doing too much and feeling overwhelmed?
Overwhelm is a bad state to be in because you are almost powerless. The power that remains is best going to simple solutions.
First of all, stop what you are doing, right now.
Take a breath, or four or five very deep breaths.
If you can, delegate items on your to-do list.
Drink lots of water. You are stressed out and water is the great healer here.
If you can, go outside. Go for a walk, go to the movies, go to the park, just go!
Other things you could do-
Go to the movies, really. Gets you out of your head.
Go to bed – naps can work wonders for your mind and body.
Read a book – distract yourself from your office, family and friends’ demands.
If there is someone you trust that you can talk to, do so to pop the energy around the overwhelm bubble.
As you come back to earth, make a list of all you have accomplished to date. Stop carrying the world on your shoulders.
Make an inventory of your most recent accomplishments. Inventories can be supportive because most people who wind up in overwhelm can be overachievers and never think that they have done enough!
