Did you ever have so much to do that you have no idea where to start? If you begin one thing, all you can see is the stuff sitting there waiting for you . . .
It is difficult to be positive when this happens. The situation may last a day, or a season, hopefully not for a lifetime. It is very easy to get overwhelmed when there is so much demanding a piece of you. Do you ever find that is when procrastination becomes king and nothing, absolutely nothing gets done? There are some things you can do to get motivated.
Lists. I know. It seems a waste of time, but write down all the projects and prioritize. It is worth the time to do this, you will get clarity.
Just go ahead and start the easiest project, this way you have a sense of accomplishment. Having one thing done, leads to the next, and before you know it you’re saying, YAY!
For me, the best thing to do is walk away from it all. Literally take a walk. Put the cell phone down, bye bye computer, TV, whatever favorite form of distraction. Isn’t it easy to get distracted by your favorite social media when you have too much to do? Take a walk, do a craft, clean the floors, mow the lawn (or maybe not the lawn –that might be on your pressure list?) or, join a friend for coffee. By concentrating on something else, I find clarity. You also might be surprised by something beautiful, like this flower . . .
There are so many things that can draw us away from the positive lifestyle we really want to have. It is worth doing whatever you can to preserve that. What is it that is on your “this is driving me crazy list?” What are ways that you “deal with moving on?” It would be fun to hear your answers!
Enjoying the Adventure,
