There's a difference between feeling overwhelmed (a state of being) and being overworked (a state of doing).

I want to help you learn to tell the difference between the two.


The Slump: Overwhelmed or Overworked

As people who are consciously aware that our state of mind and not 'something out there' affects our feelings, we tend not to notice when we actually need to change something.

If you're anything like me, you use your understanding of how the mind works to beat yourself up or to expect to 'get over yourself'.

In which case, I have good news! Both of them have a solution.

The feeling of being overwhelmed passes when we are in a different state of mind: one day, the 'to-do' list looks like an impossible task, and the next, it looks easy peasy.

Therefore, you don't have to do anything about that feeling.

BUT, it is also a love letter from your brain.

It is TELLING you something - that could be that you've taken too much on, or that you need to prioritise, or that you need support, or even that you need REST.

Learn to read the love letters from your brain.

Next time you are feeling overwhelmed:

  1. Take a break, a walk, a rest, a swim - whatever it is you do that allows your mind to settle down.
  2. From this new 'rested' perspective take a look at your workload with the question - Is there something I need to know right now?
  3. Take ACTION on the answer - it'll be small and subtle but it will be exactly what you need.

Let me know what your answer was :)
