And Actions That Can Help Overcome It
Let's tap into your MAGIC, so you can create a business and life you are absolutely in love with!
I have learned to deal with my own overwhelm by learning to focus on my own alignment. This focusing on things actually bring me joy, what gives me that positive energy, what actually makes me feel really happy and positive. By focusing on these things they give me the energy to get my to-do done. That’s probably the most productive thing that I have learned on my spiritual and entrepreneurial journey.
When the feelings over overwhelm come up for me I first focus on my own alignment. For me, this means that I need to do some self-care. This starts with putting away my cell phone, then moving my body which can include going on a hike, I will also do meditation and make a gratitude list. These things refocus and recenter me to come back to myself. I will keep asking myself what do I need right now to feel good. Because when I feel good I am able to tackle my to-do list.
This is such a different approach than I’ve been taught before.
When I started practicing it this way I realized I have control over how I feel and the way I’m showing up in the world. This led to the realization that I do have control over my overwhelm. That it is a choice for me.
Part of this being a choice for me is noticing when I’m saying “yes” to others when the answer should be “no” because their priorities are not mine. I also notice what can be delegated to others. I can see what needs to wait for a week or two weeks. I can also ask the Universe questions such as “Do I really have to do all of this stuff or does it always need to be done today?” The answer to that question is usually no, no it doesn’t not. I then focus on first things first, which for me is focusing on my own alignment and on my own self-care. I will also ask myself the question “what can I control?” There are a lot of times that we, as people, become overwhelmed because we’re focusing on things we have no control over. When we return the focus back to ourselves and ask “what can I control?” and “what do I need to do to make sure we are not falling into the overwhelm trap?” We then will have more energy and be more positive to tackle that daunting to-do list.
I’ve also learned that over the years there are a lot of things that are not on my priority list anymore because they weren’t my priorities to start with. They were someone else’s. This is something each one of us can take a look at and start to reevaluate our priority list.
These are things I’ve learned over my years in order to help myself overcome overwhelm. I hope these steps help you as well. If you want to watch the video where I talk about overwhelm click here!
