How to Deal with Being Overwhelmed

Feeling overwhelmed is one of my specialties. I love to be busy, but I have a way of finding myself too busy and feeling the stress of the to do list. I've found a few ways to cope with the stress and how to deal with being overwhelmed.

  • Lists, lists, and more lists are your best friend. Make a master to do list. Make secondary lists. Break everything down to easy step by step points so you can clearly see what you need to accomplish.
  • Take it one thing at a time so you aren't making things worse by trying to see the big picture and the distance to the finish line. Start small with the little tasks. They'll add up quickly.
  • Think about five years from now and whether or not you stressing over things is going to affect you then. More times than not, what you're worried about now won't matter in the long run. Put things into perspective and refocus.
  • Know when to say no to things even though you may want to do them. Overbooking yourself won't do anyone any good. Put your attention to a few select things so you can do them better than spreading yourself thin.
  • Ask for help. Although this one can be hard for us busy bees, asking for help can make a huge difference.
  • Don't forget to eat, sleep, and take breaks. Working yourself sick won't help get you done any faster. Take care of your health so you'll be strong and in the right mindset to accomplish things.
  • Take a breather and calm down. You got this.

It's natural to get overwhelmed from time to time when things get stressful, but it's what you do in those situations that matter most. Understand your strengths and weaknesses, value your "me" time, and focus on the little things. You'll be done and not overwhelmed in no time!

What are your tips for dealing with being overwhelmed?
