Overwhelmed? Stressed?

Are you tossing and turning, not getting the sleep you need at night? Are you impatient and crabby with the people close to you? Are you wondering “How am I going to make it through the Holiday Season?”

Feeling overwhelm and stress is the effect of not being in the present moment. Feeling overwhelm and stress is the effect of looking at the WHOLE picture instead of one piece or one area at a time. Feeling overwhelm and stress is the effect of over planning your time.

It is so easy to not be in the present moment. We try to cram doing many things in a time that is insufficient or try doing many things all at one time. When we over plan our days, our time, we easily get distracted by looking at the whole picture rather than looking at each of the pieces in turn.

This week I overwhelmed myself by over planning my days. I had my to-do list, with too many tasks and activities to possibly get done in one day. I want it all, I wrote it all on my list, and I got overwhelmed trying to actually do it all.

I got crabby, impatient, demanding, I wanted things done my way. I wanted things done right NOW, and I got irritable.

Do you ever feel that way?

You can be in present moment awareness. You can feel happy, dynamic and capable!

One. – Breathe – take a deep breathe, take another deep breathe. Feel your chest expand and loosen, feel your body relax. Take a deep breathe.

Two. – Think about what it is that you really want. Think about what is important to you. Is it the same as what you are trying to do or trying to be?

Three. – Let go what you need to let go, and allow what you need to allow.

I needed to let go of my expectations of time for those around me and allow them to be in the moment how they wanted to. I needed to let go of my wanting everything all at once, and allow myself to feel gratitude for all that is.

What can you let go off today to release overwhelm and stress?

What can you allow today to feel happy, dynamic and capable?
