When I get overwhelmed, I remind myself that there are only 24 hours in a day and I stay present to the tasks I can get done in those next 24 hours.
I put it on a piece of sticky paper, all that needs to be done for that day, and create a time map and then set the timer per task. I am able to get more done by sticking to the list and away from the chatter in my head, which is where the stress comes in.
I also ask myself, “Do I have all I need today?” The answer is 99.9%, “Yes I do! And so much more.” And that realization relaxes me as well.
The bottom line is, when I stay in the present moment, everything is fine. It’s when I wander away from it that doubt, stress and feeling overwhelmed comes in.
Hope that helps! 🙏🏻
