How to overcome the Overwhelmed feeling?

Monday, 28 July 2014 0 comments

If you're feeling overwhelmed and have been for a long time, here are 10 ways to change your thinking to lighten the stressful load you've been carrying and finally give yourself a break:

Overwhelmed

1. Get rid of the need to please.

2. Stop feeling like you need to explain yourself.

3. Don't feel the need to reply immediately to everything (hello, to emails taking over your life!).

4. Let yourself be unavailable when you need to be. It’s OK to say “no” to that event or party.

5. Cast away the thought that you need X to be successful. Why is it we often feel that ONE thing has the power to make or break us? It’s simply not true. There’s always another opportunity.

6. Get rid of the desire to show yourself off. You are enough as you are. There are people that will see you for who you are without having to prove anything.

7. Stop trying to be accepted by everyone. Not everyone is going to accept you and that’s OK. Our job is to accept that.

8. Remember that you don't need to know every detail. There's a mystery to the way life works. You might as well embrace it.

9. Toss out the need to be “good” or “perfect.” It’s OK to mess up. It’s OK for someone to see you become a little crazy. It happens to all of us.

10. Stop holding onto the stress of feeling you are responsible to hold up everyone around you. Trust that there is a greater force helping them. Helping and supporting others is wonderful. But the moment it causes stress is a signal to let go. Trust that they will be supported just as you are supported by a greater life-force.
