Feeling Overwhelmed...

— Any Antidotes for letting it go?

Its said that anxiety arises from trying to sort too many things out in short time.

And often feeling anxious this way leads to feeling overwhelmed.

So, anxiety is the mother of feeling overwhelmed!

Then what are the possible antidotes to counter anxiety?

One thing is the reason for the tendency to sort too many things out.

It could be due to being fixated or obsessed with expected results.

And, result is the last step after putting in the efforts.

Moreover what often gets overlooked is the first step which could be planning or preparation needed.

In addition to planning / preparation, engaging right stakeholders might smother the emotions.

So, focusing on the first step rather than results may help in reducing one’s anxiety.
