Hi everyone, Hope you are all healthy and striving and if you're not I am sure you will get there.
As for me, I am great, because I am blessed to be alive, to be healthy, to be loved, to be doing what I love, and just overall to have great plans to accomplish.
I do sometimes feel overwhelmed of course by life. Who doesn't right?
It's ok, believe me it is, to be overwhelmed, and to stay overwhelmed for a while, but remember.... stay like that for a very short time, always, always pick yourself up and continue. Even start over if you have to.
Every morning I wake up and thank God for another chance to get it right..... That's what life is all about. So what is overwhelming in your life? And what causes it ?
“Overwhelmed” usually implies physical or emotional exhaustion, in a negative way by default, unless the person experiencing these emotions indicates otherwise.
How can this be managed ?
- First you need to identify the “stress” yup that is what brings on the overpowering feeling . So first step is identifying and knowing that the stress from this or that brought you to being overwhelmed.
- Secondly, find ways to manage it, be prepared, stress is unavoidable, unfortunately it happens without being announced it's kind of like a party crasher, they were not invited but they show up anyway lol....... So, find ways to manage it with meditation, yoga, exercise, or maybe just a time out sewing, watching tv, or whatever pleases you, just don't stay in the negative space.
- Thirdly, calm your brain, as your brain calms down so will the rest of your body and you will ease back to the regular feeling of being yourself.
The Key to beating overwhelm feelings is being prepared..... Yup hope for the best, prepare for the worst.
I use to be overwhelmed when I had to do laundry.... Yes, this is a lesser of things that someone can feel overwhelmed about, some stuff are very important.
Anyway, I am acing it now, I do 3 loads every Friday, I wash, dry and fold and put away..... DONE!!!!
So my laundry routine is : Weekly, and I do NOT, I repeat DO NOT leave anything unfolded or not put in it's place. This works for me. And I am loving the space that it has created for me. Somethings are more serious like balancing your life, being a mom and having to work a full time job, or even dealing with an illness of a love one…... Please feel free to email me or DM me about what is overwhelming you. I promise to get you the right tips to help cast that away.
As usual I have nothing but the best to wish you all. Thank you for being here weekly.
