When You Regularly Get Stuck In A Cycle Of Overwhelm Or Burnout

Episode 72,   Oct 02, 2023, 06:00 AM

On today's episode I talk about overwhelm and burnout when things get busy. As we shift into the autumnal energy we may feel a higher tendency towards overwhelm, and we may even be unconsciously contributing to our own burnout. I'll share some ideas about how to think creatively in order to manage the busyness from a place of more ease and less stress.

Tips for managing busyness:
  • Invite in more ease - When you have a lot on your plate ask yourself, "how can I make this easier for myself?"
  • Take things off your list - Make a list of what you're trying to achieve and strike out the things that don't need to happen today or tomorrow (this includes appointments and social commitments) 
  • Step back and prioritize your own needs - Give yourself space from things when you feel the need
  • Ask for help - Make use of your community and ask for help or advice wherever you may need it
  • Try artificial intelligence - Chat GPT can be used to make your life easier in a variety of ways
  • Relieve pressure - Check in with yourself about what you're available for and ask yourself, "what is not required of me?"
  • Assess your own standards - Bring awareness to your own standards, reject societal expectations and don't compare yourself to others
  • Embrace the mess - Whether it's your home, your workspace, a relationship...allow some space for messiness 
  • Less is more - Try to avoid reinventing the wheel
  • You can choose - Decide to have a calm moment, or even a calm day! Learn how to build calm energy for yourself.
