Your mind is like a merry go round turning around and around and around. There are simple strategies you can follow to remove stress from your life and let you have a sense of control. When you find yourself feeling this way, you need some control and this can be achieved by making lists of things that you need to do. This will keep your mind from scrambling to try to remember all that you need to do that is overwhelming you.
As humans, you tend to put a lot on your plate. This, in turn, causes you to be overworked, overstressed and overwhelmed. Take a moment and pull yourself out of the equation and look at it from a broader perspective. Focus on your breath. Ground yourself. Breathe. Relax. Write down all that you need to do and want to do, short term and long term, and then follow the list. Merely writing down what needs to be done will be enough to make you feel relaxed.
Everything you want to complete can be completed and it can be completed in the time frame that you desire. All it takes is patience and tenacity. Bringing your attention to a list that you have created will give you an overall view of all that needs to be done and allows you to estimate the time that is needed. You can shuffle things around on the list, prioritizing based on items that need immediate completion and based on the estimated time to complete the task. This strategy will give you control, overall perspective and a direction to begin completing your list. Amen
