How to Deal with Overwhelm - Queen of Manifestation

How to Deal with Overwhelm

I’m writing you today from the beach.  Ah, yes – we all deserve to take a little time away to rejuvenate.

Only with proper self-care, can you truly give your best work.

But what if you’ve been so busy that taking a vacation seems way too far off?  What if you have so much to do right NOW?

I get it.

Things may be going really well for you. You have a lot of work, or you’re very busy working on building your project or career. And it seems like you never have any extra time.

There’s always something left on your T0-Do list. You’re constantly playing catch-up.

And it’s overwhelming.

Do you ever feel like you’re swimming underwater, and barely have time to catch your breath? 

As a mom and an entrepreneur, I can tell you that I have definitely felt this way before.

Even when business got good, it just seemed like there was just more on my plate.

Aside from the obvious delegating of some tasks, how else can you handle your to-do list?

Wouldn’t it be nice to have some time for yourself too?

How can you manage your time effectively so that it all gets done?

In this week’s video I share with you some simple tips to help you manage your To-Do list and conquer your overwhelm:

Yay! Simple, but effective.

I would love to hear how doing just these 2 things makes a difference in your life.

Remember to prioritize your big dream so that you can organize around it.

(tweet this.)

Now I want to hear from you.

How have you dealt with overwhelm?  Do you have a tip that I didn’t share in the video? And if you use one of the tools I talked about, I invite you to come back to this page to report how it goes! We all can benefit from your experiences.

xoxo, Jen

Thanks for this video Jen. It’s lovely to get a little peace by proxy from watching you outside, in amongst trees! The three things point is great and I’ve been doing that for while. I also often schedule my week, plotting in time slots for everything, so that I can see how much time I actually have. But, the idea of having one main day for something is great too, and for ages, I’ve had Wednesdays as my main songwriting day, for example. I also think it helps to have a good morning routine, where there will be smaller chunks of time divided up, like I do 10 minutes of scales/technique work on the piano first thing (well, after a cup of tea and some breakfast!) just to remind me that music is my priority. I find that doing that, followed by a set time for meditation too gets my day started off better so that my focus for the rest of it is shaper and less stressed. Hats off to you for managing this sort of thing with a child to look after – I think that would utterly derail me! Amazing. Wishing you lots more peace and relaxation! XOXO

I love the way you split different priorities by day. I also love scheduling in alone time! When I have time alone, I work, work, work. I have three children and work in my business part-time. Ifeel I have to go, go, go before they get home.
Thank you for the insight!

I really love what you are talking about with thinking of tasks in terms of the whole week. I think it is so much more relaxing and rewarding to be able to devote one day to working and thinking about a specific task rather than being so scattered all day long. Of course, being a mom, we naturally have a lot of things begging for attention, but this is a great framework to follow. Thank you!
