I feel overwhelmed right now so I decided to tell you how I plan to not let the feeling of being overwhelmed get me down. I am compelled to write this because I believe that sharing my story will help you as well as inspire you to not give up.
I Feel Overwhelmed, Here’s Why
I feel overwhelmed because I am starting a new business and I have a lot of business related tasks that I need to do.
How do I do it, when do I do it, where do I do it, and what do I do? All these questions are running through my mind which brought on the feeling of being overwhelmed. It’s too much for my brain hold.
These questions got me down and I started having doubts about my purpose in life. A very close friend once said, “The love of your work will keep you going even when you feel like giving up.”
I rarely get headaches, but I notice that when I am overwhelmed and stressed the headaches magically appear. I guess it’s my body’s way of telling me to give my brain a break and to stop pushing myself so hard. Guess, I need to listen.
Feeling Overwhelmed, Here’s What You Should Do
- Take a break.
- Deep breathe.
- Meditate or have quiet time.
- Go for a walk.
- Don’t worry.
- Trust that you are doing the right thing.
- Confide in someone you trust.
- Don’t be in a hurry.
- Don’t put unnecessary pressure on yourself.
- Break bigger jobs into smaller jobs.
- Don’t compare yourself to others.
- Follow your heart.
I feel better after writing this post. My headache is almost gone which is a sign that writing is good therapy.
The next time you feel overwhelmed or if you ever feel like giving up, say to yourself, “It doesn’t matter what it looks like, I will never give up and my change is on the way.”
