Today's FAF (Frequently Asked Friday): "How can I feel less overwhelmed?"
In this crazy world of stimulus, demand, distraction and stress, too many of us are living a diminished quality of life by simple being overwhelmed.
MG addresses this question from a few different angles, but the main bullet point is this: If at any point we feel overwhelmed, it simply means we don't know what our Number One Priority is.
Think of a Days of Our Lives-style timer with sands flowing through an hourglass: No matter how much sand there is, only one grain can flow through at a time.
So how can you learn to diminish your overwhelm and free your mind along with your time?
1. Prioritize: Your first step is to make a list and identify your top priority -- multitasking only leads to more overwhelm.
2. Lose Your Habit Shackles: Next, understand that HABIT is at play. If you are feeling overwhelmed, know that you are bound by your habits. Your habits should be serving you!
Here's a great quote (look for it as a future Mind Bullet Monday): "Habit: A shackle for the free."
Just one example: Are you feeling overwhelmed but find yourself glued to your phone, Facebooking, gaming, Tweeting, checking headlines...? Put your phone on vibrate and free up time for your priorities!
3. Do Less: We are so programmed to create and take on more and more. But try taking on less -- even less thinking.
So what can you be doing less of? What can you eliminate? There's only so much energy.
4. Meditation: Remember, muddied waters left to stand grow clear. Concentrate your energy.
Tune in to the episode for tips and pointers on using these four steps to feel more calm and in control of your life, instead of feeling perpetually overwhelmed.
