Overwhelm consumes most of our lives, whether your an over booked personal trainer trying to find a gasp of air from doing 45 sessions a week and can't fit any new clients in, your an online coach that can't keep up with new requests flooding your inbox or you just find that you can't keep up with daily life and its demands. Let this help you, to take back control, release tension and allow you to breathe so that you can regain you inner power.
Step One - A brain dump - our minds are like sponges we consume more and more in a given day and don't give our minds a chance to un load. How would you feel if you didn't shower for 3 days? Nasty right, well our minds are similar, if you don't clean them out daily, they become a mess. Take time in evening to write everything out on paper, tasks to do, projects to work on, even things you shouldn't be doing. Unload your mind, clean it out, then organize and prioritize to get clear on what you MUST focus on.
Step Two - Increase awareness - step away from things for at least 5 minutes, get present and into a place of productive consciousness. Perform a release/let go 5 meditation, go for a 5 minute power walk with no phone. No distractions are allowed when you aim to increase awareness, this is privacy time for you to get connected. I'd suggest making this a habit throughout your work day to eliminate reactive behaviours.
Step Three - Shift emotions - ask intentional questions to get you into elevated state. What is MOST important for me to focus on right now? How do I want to feel right now? How must I proceed to be the most productive as possible?
Step Four - Identify any unfinished projects that are weighing you down - what projects have you started that need your attention or you can leave alone for a different date? A big problem with overwhelm is starting to many things at once and not completing things, take an inventory of them right now. What can you focus on now and finish, what can you leave for next month, 3 months or maybe put on the side completely? What do you need to let go of? Put your energy into the few that give you the highest return.
As an entrepreneur, I've gone through overwhelm in many capacities, with company's I've built over the years, but there is one thing that holds true in any case, overwhelm is jut an emotion, its not permanent. If your in a place where you feel completely stressed, you can change this, but you'll need to take steps, just as you did in putting yourself into this overwhelm position. Take action, start with the brain dump, increase your awareness, shift your emotions and do an inventory of all your unfinished items so your crystal clear. This all should take you about 30 minutes, if your saying you don't have time, make time, you can't afford any more time under your current circumstances.
