Feeling Overwhelmed

Sometimes life is just overwhelming. It takes us on a ride, on a to-do list that, most of the time, is not even ours. We wake up and do our thing, get the kids ready for school, go to work, or whatever first stumbles in front of our feet. There is no rhythm; we just go from one point to another point. This feels overwhelming; it feels that energy is dripping away. It is not having control over your day, but rather giving away your power.

Making a Change Within Your Day & Leaving the Overwhelming Behind



Start taking charge of your day, having the feeling that your day goes the way you would like it to go. I know we read a lot about going with the flow and being flexible. You know all that beautiful jazz that others tell us. It is important that you take on YOUR flow; this means YOUR rhythm of the day. This will automatically present you with the things you would love to do.


Stepping into your space, your power, basically your own YOU. Start your day in a real nice, calm way. If necessary, yes, get up a little bit earlier. Sometimes 5 minutes before the alarm clock gives you a gentle start. To give yourself that time to put your feet on the ground next to your bed and breathe in and out. To make sure it is going to be your day and your flow.


Start feeling your body. What does your body need, what kind of food is it craving, does your body need more you time, movement? Or does your body want more family time, spent hanging around the dining room table and chatting? Find what it is you need, and make sure that every day you do exactly that.


This one is as important as the first one. By the end of the day, write down or stand still by what has made the day special. Because every day has something special, not only once in a blue moon. YOUR day is special every day on its terms.


It is crucial to let go of the overwhelming, letting go of what cannot be done. Let go of the things that didn’t happen for some reason. Life is living by your set of rules. By your flow, and having your control in what you’re really would like to do. It is an amazing feeling to wake up with the feeling that today is going to go where you want it to go, to have your flow.
