The past few weeks have been a gentle reminder that sometimes, we all find ourselves feeling overwhelmed with life. Fortunately, in my case, it wasn’t because of anything too serious.
First and foremost, go back to basics and start taking care of yourself. I mean the basics: drink water, eat regularly, take your vitamins, and sleep best you can.
The next thing to do when you’re feeling overwhelmed is to start saying no. Every non-essential request or invitation should be turned down.
As the saying goes, “comparison is the thief of joy.” It’s also a fast-track to overwhelm. Comparing your life to others may give you a sense that everyone else has it all and under control.
Journaling can be helpful as a relaxation strategy, plus it can help improve your mindset. This is because getting your thoughts out of your mind and onto paper can give you space to think.
