Are you wondering if there’s more to life than feeling overwhelmed?
Do you desire more space because your schedule is packed?
Is stress affecting your health and relationships?
If you answered yes to any of these, you’re not alone. Sometimes, it feels like you’re stuck in a cycle of overworking yourself, coping with the signs of burnout, and praying for relief. When you’re trapped in the cycle for long enough, your motivation wanes, your relationships become strained, and your performance suffers.
You want to create positive change, but chances are, you won’t break the cycle overnight.
Still, you can create mini changes one day at a time.
One small habit at a time.
“I’m so overwhelmed”
Lately, it seems like this is the prevalent thought occupying space in your mind throughout the day. With all that’s going on in the world, it’s natural to feel your stress levels rising. But it doesn’t help when there’s already so much on your plate!
Running errands. Looking after the kids. Finding work/life balance (especially if you’re working from home). Now, you might be feeling distressed by the latest news surrounding COVID-19 and social unrest.
The cycle repeats with barely a moment to breathe and center yourself and eventually, signs of burnout start to settle in.
When you’re feeling this way, it’s time to rely on your support systems.
We recently passed the halfway point of 2020 and it feels like so much has happened.
A global pandemic? Mandated quarantine? Business shutdowns?
One year ago today, there was no predicting all the challenges we’d have to overcome.
Now, businesses are reopening and people are going out again. That means finally leaving your home for social and recreational activities.
Sounds exciting, right?
But the thing is, there is so much we don’t know yet. Coronavirus stress is real and you might be feeling anxious about the changes and uncertainties to come.
My intention is to help you move forward courageously, even when the future is uncertain.
You might wish there was more time in the day to get everything done.
But here’s the real problem.
If you’re not managing your time properly by getting the right things done, more time would do little to ease your stress.
Instead of wishing for more time, the trick is getting better at utilizing the time you already have. That means learning how to use your time effectively.
Here’s how to do that in three easy steps…
Do these uncertain times have you feeling more on edge than usual?
… If anxiety is keeping you up at night…
… If you’re afraid to leave your home…
… If you’re feeling helpless in the face of this global pandemic …
You may be experiencing coronavirus stress.
Coronavirus stress can take a severe toll on your well-being — but only if you allow it. The tips in this article will support you during these stressful times and keep you grounded.
Imagine a world that is more loving, more compassionate, and more forgiving. There is less racial injustice. Communities and people from different backgrounds embrace each other. Everybody is treated equally under the law and in reality.
It almost seems like a utopia too good to be true, right?
Yet, it’s a mission that is just and worth standing for. I believe compassion is the key to manifesting a world that is freer and more equitable. But before we can change society, we must start with ourselves. Enriching the lives of the people within your community begins with having compassion for yourself.
What do you think of when you hear the words “white privilege”?
They make some people shift uncomfortably in their seats. I think this is because it doesn’t get discussed enough.
In this social climate, following the recent tragedies of racial injustice — George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor — it’s time to unpack white privilege.
It’s important to not only understand what white privilege is, but how it can be used as a resource to push for equality and justice.
