Overcoming Your Overwhelm

We all feel overwhelmed from time to time. So, what's the best way to move past it?

We all have to deal with stress time to time. Some more than others. One of the most common causes of stress in our society is feeling downright overwhelmed. And, being overwhelmed can feel awfully...well, overwhelming. When you get into that state of mind it's difficult to navigate your way back out to the other side. I know how it feels. I often (try always!) find myself juggling a million things at once. Or, perhaps it's just one mammoth task that has so many different steps it makes you crazy trying to figure it all out. When there are many different things calling your attention, it's difficult to decide what you should do first. So, what usually happens?

You start one thing, then another, then another, and don’t quite get any of them finished. Or, you feel SO overwhelmed that you do absolutely nothing!  And then it all just piles up and gets out of control and soon you are pulling out your hair and kicking yourself.

Can you relate? I’ve been there.  All of the above. But, fear not, there is hope! It's quite simple really. There is one very old, very effective, very wise rule to overcoming your overwhelm. Are you ready for it? Here it is…

One thing at a time

That’s right.  Just one little thing at a time.

I know it sounds obvious, but this is it.

How do you do this? It's easier than you think, if you let it be. You pick one thing out of that mile-long list of yours and you focus on that one thing only. See, now, it’s not so bad is it? Just that one little task. Once you have completed it, you move on to the next one thing.

If you have one thing that seems too big, you break it down into smaller things. Then, you do those smaller things one at a time as individual tasks.

So, how do you know which one thing to start with? When you have all of these many looming responsibilities, how on earth do you figure out which to begin with?

The answer is easy.

The answer is inside you.

You'll know which task calls to you most urgently if you quiet your mind for a moment and listen.  You can do this.

To get all of those tasks that are bouncing around in your head sorted, write them all down on paper.  Then choose the one that calls to you, and tackle it full force.

You can do this.

Believe it.
