Getting Through Overwhelming Times

These last few weeks have been full. Mostly of good things, but full nonetheless. I find that can be a little overwhelming, so I decided to think about some of the things I've learned over the past months; some good things to remember when trying to keep life cool.





Yup, This is the blog equivalent of a clips show, but I think it's a useful one.  After all, this blog is about me learning things and sharing them. This last little while, these were definitely some things to keep in mind.



  • Don't try to do everything:

    • If you've got a lot to do, you've got to priortize.Once you find what you really do have left to do, you may be able to save some time with the task or ask for some help to make things go smoother. I cannot stress this last one enough; you might be surprised by how people can come through for you when you need them.

  • Get enough sleep:



  • Keep up the exercise: There are lot's of options.

    • This is such a good way to relieve stress and stay healthy. It doesn't have to be complicated; could be a dance party, a swim in this weather, or maybe a walk or bike-ride to your destination. That last one was a tripple whammy this week as I got to where I had to go, blew off a little steam, and fit in exercise that was right for me.


  • Keep yourself well-fueled:


  • Try not to take everything too seriously:

    • Sometimes, life just hands you things you really don't want and you've got to go with the flow. Sometimes the path to our goals get a little muddy and we lose them. It happens and it's okay; we can always decide to pursue them again or to let them go if they weren't really what we needed. Take what comes and laugh, if you can, at ironies, ease up about things that aren't really that important.


  • Take time to relax:

    • This may sound difficult, but it's so important. Once you've prioritized and asked for help, look again. You might find that still you don't need to do everything on your list, at least not right away. Take some time to think about how you feel and  breath, this will help you stay healthy, get your work done, and generally enjoy life. After all, isn't that what it's about?



    Live well,
    Charlotte
