Take a deep breath.
Everyone feels overwhelmed by life and stressed out at times — most stress is normal and will pass. Instead of working yourself to exhaustion, know when to take a break. You can get a lot more done with a clear mind and a happy heart.
Only you know what is too much for you to handle so take care of yourself. Your tasks will still be there tomorrow, so if you want to spend today not caring about your responsibilities then let them go.
You shouldn’t feel guilty if you want to stay in bed, rest, and binge watch a television show. Don’t be afraid to answer yes to Netflix asking “are you still watching?” If you need time to reflect, then take a long walk and enjoy the scenery all around you. Maybe you have friends that you have been too busy to spend time with and now would be a great time to see them. Plan a cute dinner with your gal pals, get drinks, and have a kiki!
If your brain has been in overdrive, maybe put more attention on connecting with your body to relieve your anxiety. Take a hot yoga or spin class to get your body moving. Just do things that will bring you joy and satisfaction.
It is important that you put yourself and your mental health first, so take the necessary steps you need to take to do that. If you have been wanting to take up a new hobby, nothing is stopping you. Enroll in that photography class you have always wanted to take. Find the balance and reach equilibrium.
Life is difficult, but it can also be beautiful. So focus on finding the beauty in it instead of just seeing the darkness and gloom that comes with anxiety and the feelings of being overwhelmed with life.
It might not be obvious right now, but it will get better and you will overcome this.
These anxiety quotes about what it feels like to be overwhelmed are sure to give you the right mindset to help you find peace and calm, even when you’re stressed out.
1. Just keep swimming.
“Promise me you will not spend so much time treading water and trying to keep your head above the waves that you forget, truly forget, how much you have always loved to swim.” — Tyler Knott Gregson
