overwhelmedWork, politics, the world…it’s easy to feel overwhelmed these days–like we’re drowning in a sea of bad news and despair. Fill in your own details; I know you have them.

So today, a few reminders of what we can do for ourselves when we feel completely overwhelmed. Or just before, to avoid that “going down for the last time” feeling. Pick just one each time you feel anxious and overwhelmed:

Get out in nature

Read a book

Have a massage.

Watch an escapist film

Simplify your day

Listen to relaxing music

Breathe deeply

Just say no


Set limits and priorities

Do nothing: zone out

Which if these can you build into your day? How about trying just one a day?
