When feeling overwhelmed, we don’t get much done, even though we have lots to do. You feel “overwhelmed” simply because you think you are. It’s all in your mind.
SHIFT AWAY FROM OVERWHELM
Breathe. Clear your mind. Be calm.
Put things into perspective.
Shift from “I’m overwhelmed” to “I have these things to do”
Prioritise what needs to be done first.
Then break the task down into small steps.
Be calm, simplify and get started.
Finishing tasks replaces ‘overwhelm’ with the feeling of accomplishment.
