Tired of feeling overwhelmed?Sep 06, 2022
Do you find you feel overwhelmed by everything you need to do? Between work and home, there just seems to be a never ending list.
You have been so busy focusing on everyone and everything else, making sure they all have what they want and need. You forgot yourself in the process, you forgot to prioritize your own needs. Now you get to the end of the day, you just feel exhausted, not at all rewarded.
You’ve noticed lately that you’re snapping at your kids and partner, the smallest things seem to build up and then you suddenly explode. You know you shouldn’t raise your voice, you know you shouldn’t get sarky, you know you shouldn’t be grumpy… but you just can’t help it!
Yesterday you skipped the exercise, you felt you didn’t have enough time with everything else you needed to get done. But let’s be honest, you did manage to spend at least 20 minutes sitting on the couch scrolling through your phone. You know this is not the way it should be. You know you’d feel better after exercising, but it’s so hard to make it a part of your routine.
Have you noticed you say “yes” to everything you’re asked to do? Have you heard the saying, if you want something done, give it to a busy person. The reason this happens is because you’re good, you get sh*t done, but it doesn’t have to be at the expense of yourself.
Do you feel like you should be making better choices and decisions? Not only for yourself, but for your family. You can, once you know how to remove the fog from your life.
Have you noticed that your worry, your overthinking and your exhaustion robs you of being present and enjoying life as it is right now?
Are you wondering how you let your life get to this point? Are you wanting to take the leap and lead your life where you want to go?
There are times in life when you’re going to feel overwhelmed. Whether it be with work, the family or just life in general. Life is a roller coaster, and there will be times when you’re in a dip and feeling like you just can’t do any more!
You keep pushing this feeling aside. You keep going, focused on your family and their needs, focused on your work and just doing. But the reality is, if you’re not fully OK, then you’re doing yourself, your family and potentially your work a disservice. You are not able to give 100% and that’s not fair on anyone, let alone you!
If you’re not sure what I’m talking about, then let me share a few of the ways feeling overwhelmed can impact your life.
You don’t feel like it. You don’t really want to get out of bed in the morning. You drag your feet going about your usual daily routine, without stopping to think about what you’re actually doing. Even when someone suggests doing something together, you wonder if you’ve even got the energy?
You find yourself feeling a little jealous of other people’s lives. Even if they’re a close friend, and you're actually really happy for them. You still feel a little envious. They’ve “got it together” and you feel a little jealous.
Lately you’ve been over indulging. That extra piece of chocolate. That last cookie in the packet. That extra glass of wine because frankly I deserve it! But in the next moment, the next morning, you have that sinking feeling again… oh!
If you answered with an ahhhh… yeah! to any of these then now is the time to stop, recognise overwhelm for what it is and make a change in your life. You owe it to yourself.
But how? Where do you start?
Firstly, you need to recognise that your overwhelm is real and how it is impacting your life. But importantly you need to understand that this feeling doesn’t have to be permanent.
Then ask yourself one question, so what? So what am I prepared to do about it?
