During times of overwhelm, stress levels rise to unpleasant heights. In this state of mind, you are less effective and productive, you become easily agitated and, it’s not fun being you. When faced with an overwhelming amount of situations to deal with, the wisest choice is to take control of your mindset. This is accomplished by writing down all that is on your mind so that you can clearly see what is in front of you. Next, prioritize your list and focus on each one, in order of importance, until completed or until you have gone as far as you can with it. These few simple steps will position you to effectively manage your situations, release the feeling of overwhelm and get back to a more pleasant reality.
