I’ve been feeling rather overwhelmed as of late. I’ve been trying to change things about myself, working on getting cleaning routines in place and still being a wife, mother, crafter and servant in my church. Let’s just say that adds up to a whole lot of things on the to do list. When I get overwhelmed, I freeze and get stuck. So instead of getting 1 little thing done here or there, I manage to get nothing done on the to do list.
As I was checking my email this morning I saw an email from Simplify 101. The email was about being overwhelmed. You can check out the blog post here. I am so thankful for this timely email. It was perfect for me this morning. I did what the email suggests, which was a complete brain dump of every single thing that I think needs my attention. Phew, that is a long list! Now, I’m going to focus on the following statement: “I will get more done if I focus on one things at a time.”
How do you deal with being overwhelmed? Do you have a favorite method for keeping track of your to do’s and completed items? I’d love to hear about your way of handling things.
