Are you struggling right now and barely keeping your head above water due to feeling overwhelmed? Are you stuck in patterns that don’t serve you but don’t know what to do about it? Do you lack the clarity to move forward into something that serves you better? Do you consistently hear yourself saying, “I feel overwhelmed?”
Depression from a lack of motivation to break free is often not far behind how you may be feeling right now.
Self-care practices? Well, they’re out the window. I get it!
Even though I teach, practice, and embrace the foundational practices of self-care, I get knocked off course when life gets stormy, just like you.
I’ve had news that sends me sailing in the wrong direction. Where everything I know about showing self-kindness and anchoring practices of care gets gripped by the storm. My usual sunny self goes off scrambling for the light and looking for solace. Can you relate?
There are moments in life when we’re beyond the normal fixes to feel good fast (with both healthy and unhealthy habits). When we’re knocked off course, our brain sounds the alarm, and a full-body reaction that’s big and bold with emotion moves us into a primal state of being – usually the warning signs of stress. Our emotional seats get hijacked and we switch into biochemistry that’s not supportive of our well-being.
The good news is, we can do something about this and switch back to a space that’s anchored in well-being. All we need are the right self-care tools that can put us back on pathways to an anchored center.
Hopefully, practicing these tips will reduce feeling overwhelmed and bring you more peace and relaxation. If you would like help reducing your stress levels and overwhelm, read more about my personal coaching program, From Chaos to Calm.
