10. How to Cope with Overwhelm (Stress, Burnout, etc.) Solo Episode


Subscribe in iTunes




I want to talk about something everyone is familiar with: OVERWHELM.

Whether it's work, family stuff, creative projects or body stuff- it's super easy to feel like we're not doing enough; to feel so overwhelmed by everything on our plate that we don't know where to begin.

In this week's episode I'm walking you through my seven go-to practices when I'm feeling the weight of the overwhelm. I use these like guiding principles -anchors to return home to, if you will- to lower stress and amp up productivity when I'm short on time and energy.

The seven practices:

  • Get your priorities straight (and on paper!)
  • Be disciplined with your calendar
  • Set some boundaries when it comes to how you're spending your time
  • Make time for quality friend time
  • Make time for quiet time
  • Go out of your way to do something big & bold as self-care
  • Put quality sleep higher up on your priority list
  • Always be gentle with yourself
