Feeling Overwhelmed?

Have you ever felt so overwhelmed by something that it was almost debilitating? You could feel overwhelmed about a project that needs doing, a test you have to take, a chore that you keep putting off because you cannot get past the sense of being so overwhelmed.

Anything can cause you to feel overwhelmed.It happens to us all and it is normal. I procrastinate when I feel overwhelmed by something. Sometimes procrastination in itself can cause you to feel overwhelmed. The longer you let something go the more you feel overwhelmed about tackling that particular task.

Some deal better than others and just dive right in. Others procrastinate and allow the task to build and build, even if only in their heads. The task itself may not get bigger but it becomes bigger mentally. Feeling overwhelmed is a mental debilitation.

We all just need to calm down and take each task in small steps. By breaking up a large task in to smaller ones our sense of being overwhelmed will diminish. We have to put ourselves in the mindset that we will tackle our task and we will accomplish our goals no matter how small or big. Anything can be accomplished with lessened overwhelming power when broken down in to small steps. Baby steps, one piece at a time.
