We get into overwhelm for a few reasons. We are tired. We are thirsty. We are hungry. We procrastinate. We are ill. We don’t feel listened to or valued. We feel alone. All of these things (and more) can propel us into a state of overwhelm. When we find ourselves responding to every day events with an emotional extreme, we are in overwhelm. Take a moment. Stop. Go somewhere quiet, even if it means locking yourself in the toilet. Close your eyes. Breathe. Relax.

What will your day bring your way? If you’re able to take a walk, a nap, a coffee/tea break, get something to eat, or take some time away, then do that. Rest. Hydrate. Nourish yourself. Reach out and talk to someone who supports and encourages you. Life is overwhelming for all of us sometimes. You are not alone. Be grateful for small blessings. Love yourself.
