This weekend I have had an entire sense of “overwhelm”.
Maybe it is the thought of getting back into work, maybe it the the looming year ahead, maybe it is the dreams and ambitions I have for my life.
When I feel overwhelmed I love to take the “just do something” approach.
If the house is a pigsty and I feel completely overwhelmed I start by just picking something up. It doesn’t matter what, you just have to do something.
That item then leads you to another item, which leads you the do washing in the kitchen and picking up the diplomatic and making the bed.
Taking that same approach to other aspects of my life usually works to. Answer an email, plan your day, make a call, write a blog post…just start with something.
