Today’s episode is born from my own experience over the last couple of weeks of feeling there’s so much going on not only in my own life, but in the world generally.
It’s been hard to stay motivated and focused on the things that really matter, and I know I’m not alone in this. So join me as I share four powerful strategies to help you reset and refocus when overwhelm takes hold.
Overwhelm can strike for many reasons, like a jam-packed to-do list, social anxiety or external factors like political instability and global events. It’s a natural part of life; however, it’s crucial to recognise that it can affect every aspect of our lives. When we’re overwhelmed at work, it often spills over into our personal lives and negatively impacts our overall wellbeing.
The first step in regaining control is acknowledging that you’re overwhelmed. It’s essential to confront this feeling head-on rather than letting it simmer beneath the surface. Remember, it’s okay to feel this way. We’re all multidimensional and complex beings. So rather than beat yourself up, I encourage you to take action and get back to being productive with these four steps:
I take you through each step and give you some practical ideas of how to implement them in your daily life. I talk about writing down your to-do list tasks in one place so give yourself a consolidated view of what’s really going on, and evaluate what is serving you and what isn’t.
Remember, life isn’t about achieving perfection but making progress, one step at a time. So, bookmark this episode as a valuable resource, whether you’re in the midst of overwhelm or to safeguard against those moments that try to sneak back in.
