I have been overwhelmed in the past 10 years of my life. To be honest with you I have been like this for the majority of my life. Some years ago I felt that something needed to drastically change as I couldn’t go on the way I have been. So here are some tips I put into practice to get my life back on track and to be balanced so I enjoy my life as it should be enjoyed!
1) Master The Art Of Overwhelm, get a good night’s rest
If you are feeling tired and stressed out, getting a good night’s rest should be your number one priority. Give time yourself and wind down before going to bed. I tend to listen to an self-esteem affirmations on my laptop whilst I am falling asleep. I get 7 hours of good sleep and when I wake up in the morning I feel that I am ready for the day.
I normally spend time in meditation every morning, When I first wake in the morning I meditate and I spend 5 minutes. I do it then as some days it get really busy and I have forgotten to meditate but once I have established a habit I stick to it so first thing in the morning works for me. So sitting for just five minutes, breathing deeply in and out, and it makes me feel relaxed and calm to face the day ahead..
3) Master The Art Of Overwhelm, make yourself eat, you need fuel in your engine!
Have you ever felt stressed? You just drink coffee and miss out breakfast. Then you think you will make up for it at lunchtime so (breakfast often ends up eaten at lunchtime). To keep your engine fully functioning don’t skip meals and snacks as this leads to low blood sugar, tiredness and lack of concentration, which in turn makes you feel unable to cope. You have to get into a good habit and get some real food into your stomach as soon as you get up – you’ll feel much better if you do. I tend to eat throughout the day and don’t tend to let myself ever get too hungry. Listen to ours body’s cues, it tells you that it needs food and water, no matter how busy you are listen to it.
4) Master The Art Of Overwhelm , load up on greens
I remember to speaking to a Doctor many years ago (an open minded one!) and he said that everyone needs to eat plenty of green vegetables every day. I have done that since then and whilst I have a mixture of colours I still mainly go for the green veg. Maybe try a green smoothie. Having the correct diet can help you immensely to cope with the stresses on a daily basis.
Master The Art Of Overwhelm With These 7 Tips cont……
Let go on the everything must happen now mentality, it will end up killing you. Take a break when your body or mind starts to feel tired. Set a timer and work for 50 minutes and break for 10 minutes. Have a small snack. Get up and take a walk in your garden for some fresh air. Rest your brain. Take your lunch outside and sit in the garden. (I do this and although we are in Winter I have my j jacket and a cup of coffee with my lunch and it feels so good). Everyone needs breaks, it’s better to break as you will achieve more in your day and don’t tell yourself that you’re better off just ploughing through.
6) Master The Art Of Overwhelm, give yourself a day off every week even God had that and look what he achieved!
We live in a 24-7 world and it’s easy to say we have 7 days to achieve what we use to achieve in 5. When you take a Sunday off completely it can really save your sanity. Remember you are entitled to have a day off so when you get tempted and say to yourself I’ll just do this for a couple of hours, DON’T! Stick to your one day off and turn your phone off, stay offline, don’t even look at Facebook. This is YOUR time to chill out, read a book, watch a film, spend time with family and friends and enjoy that time. You will reenergise your body especially your brain. Once you get into the habit of being able to switch off you will love it as will the ones you spend time with. Please remember Rome wasn’t built in a day!
7) Master The Art Of Overwhelm, create good habits in your online business
When I started my online business I really felt stressed and overwhelmed. It was a different path I wanted to go down and I was consciously incompetent. I struggled, really I did. I wanted to learn it all and I wanted to learn it now. I jumped from this to that forgetting what I have been taught as I switched many times. I was on a HUGE learning curve and I didn’t take that into account.
Needless to say things went very slow and I was stressed and frustrated with my lack of progress. Stuart one of my mentors at the time said to me to focus on one form of advertising and stick to that till I had mastered it. Once I had mastered it then I could learn another one. He also mentioned to unsubscribe from many people I was subscribed to as this was distracting me and slowing my progress down also. I did and what a difference it has made to me, my life and my business.
