Overcoming Overwhelm

In moments of overwhelm and stress, a feeling of chaos, or a mind that is loud and endlessly running….typically when we feel there is so much to be done and never enough time to do it all….this is when I completely stop and do nothing.
 
I get still.
Mentally and Physically.
 
I have come to understand the actions we take are either out of fear or out of love. And what we put out, is what we get back.
 
In these moments of overwhelm we are acting out of fear. 
Fear of a lack of time. Fear of disappointing. Fear of failure.  
 
The only way to break the cycle is to be still and wait until you are in a place of peace. 

 
I do this in a few different ways.
Yoga 

Cooking

Reading

Gardening 

Meditation

Cleaning / Decluttering 
Nature / Hike by myself

Listening to Spiritual Teachers 
 
Whatever it looks like for you, however you can, get yourself back to a state of calm and peace – everything else can wait. And should wait. Your best work does not come from a place of fear, it comes from a place of love.
 
I hope the next time you feel overwhelmed you have the strength to be still. To go inside yourself and find your clarity before you continue on. 

By doing this you will come to find this time of stillness will be followed by a time of intense progress. Everything is balanced. With stillness comes action. Which brings aligbed action. And from aligned action we step into the flow state of peaceful, streamlined productivity. 



All my best,
Jody
