  • Overwhelmed? Do a brain dump

    Posted on by Heather

    The best thing to do when you’re mentally overwhelmed and you feel a sense that there’s too much to do, so many people waiting for you to respond, things you sense you’re forgetting….

    STOP

    Deep breath.

    One more.

    Write it all down. All of it. Dump it out of your brain. Put it down on paper. Don’t stop until you sense mental relief; as though the fog is lifting and you can sense the bigness of the blue sky. It will come. I promise.

    When you’re all done.

    One more. Deep breath.

    Look over your list & choose no more than 3 things that you can do right now.

    Do them.

    The feeling of moving forward will propel more of the same.

    Keep chunking your list down. One by one, step by step, moment by moment.

    1. Your post brings to mind a motto I like to live and work by when the overwhelm gremlin rears it’s ugly head – sometimes taking a step back is the best way forward.

    2. Awesome reminder! Breathe in + out x 5.

    3. Love that Ali.

      Yes, Helen – the breath is so powerful. Craziness. :)
