In this blog, I want to help you to use your feelings; stopping you from feeling overwhelmed.
Step 1. Why do you feel overwhelmed?
The reason why you feel overwhelmed is that the hard to deal with emotions such as anxiety, tension and sadness have not been listened to.
This, in turn, is what keeps your attention to situations that make you feel this way and if those feelings aren’t dealt with, that overwhelming feeling will keep building up.
Step 2. This feeling will subside
You might feel that you can not escape feeling overwhelmed yet that feeling will subside. All you need to do is address the situation at hand and start to understand and use the feelings attached to that situation.
Step 3. Feel confident
The only thing that makes anyone feel confident is knowing exactly what to do and feeling confident about it.
And the way for you to be more confident is to build on your knowledge and realise you have what it takes to achieve anything that you put your mind to.
Step 4. Make a plan
In order to help you to feel more confident, just like having an instruction manual, make a plan so that you know what you need to do and when you have to do it.
Step 5. Manage your expectations
Accept that you might not get it right the first time every time, and that’s OK.
The more you practice the better you will get – my first couple of YouTube videos are a testament to that – but the more videos I did, the better they got.
Making me not only better at doing videos but also making the whole experience of recording videos more enjoyable.
The reason you feel overwhelmed is that you feel that there is too much to do and so little time to do it in.
Begin with some manageable tasks and soon enough you will notice that you have done most of the tasks you set aside.
Persevere and soon you won’t feel overwhelmed anymore. Remember you do have what it takes.
