Stay Calm

Standard

Everything often hits at once. The kids have all kinds at work due at the end of the semester. There are tests to study for and swim meets and shopping and you get it. Sometimes it piles up so high that I can’t see around it. It sits right there in front of me blocking me from seeing anything else. I am frozen in panic trying to figure out a way to get everything done and the more I panic, the less efficient I become. So today, I need to remind myself to take each day at a time and not look further ahead. Focus on now and work through that first. When I look at the week as a whole it becomes overbearing so stay here, in this moment, stay calm and know, this too shall pass. It is only one week in hopefully a very long life. I remember Catie saying in yoga last week, if you need to see things a different way, if you need a new perspective, do a headstand. Maybe I will give it a try.

What do you do to help ease the stress when you are feeling overwhelmed?

    I try to break it down hour by hour and be realistic about what I really can do. Putting up new Christmas lights outdoors would be really nice but realistically it is not going to happen so it does not go on my list. Also, I build in me time to d what I like. I have to use timers or else I get lost in projects too. I set a realistic time and when the timer goes off move on to the next thing or a break. It has helped me tons using the timers.
