If you are feeling overwhelmed or stresses that you cannot think straight? Do you have days when the minds feels so cluttered that cannot fit in another chore, appointment or project even if you wanted to?
When our minds are loaded with stress, worry and overwhelm, we work from an operational part of our mind that prevents us from making plans or taking actions that serve the best interest. It is easy to lose confidence when you are in stressful times. We just don’t know which way to turn.
Stop and take stock
Even though you might be having a bad or even a bad week, you can think of many people and things you are grateful for. Targeting on those we love and what in good in our lives is an effective way of controlling the body’s response to stress and keeping things in check.
Breathe deeply and focus slowly
This ancient practice quickly reduces stress and enables us to tap into our creative energy. And from our creative resources, we can easily find the solutions we need.
Find what influences and help without being controlled
Jot down a list of things that overwhelm you. After you do, check the things that can influence. Review other things on the list and acknowledge that you might not be able to manage them. When you do that, committ to letting them go and trust the hope to guide you.
