How Do You Manage Overwhelm?
Every Monday I’ll post a video/written question for the week – something I’m thinking, that I saw in the news or that was inspired by a conversation. The questions serve a couple of purposes: to get you thinking, to share ideas, and to collect data. I’ll offer my thoughts, but more importantly I’d like to hear from you so we can learn from each other.
Overwhelm. Have you experienced it? That feeling of having too much to do and not enough time to do it? I’ve come to define overwhelm as too many thoughts and not enough action. To solve it I need to get out of my head and do something with my body. Either take action on one of the thoughts, go for a walk, stretch – anything that keeps me from thinking too much. In this video I share my favorite cure for overwhelm – a few deep breaths – and as I do a surprise guest enters. A furry friend who often reminds me to take a break during the day.
