Overwhelmed. The definition is “1. Overpower somebody emotionally, 2. Provide somebody with huge amount, 3. Overcome somebody physically.” I don’t know about you, but in today’s fast-paced world, it’s easy to succumb to overwhelm. Here are a few tips to help you deal: Meditation is a wonderful way to quiet your mind and take a few minutes for reconnecting with yourself. Remembering to take things one step at a time and set SMART goals (Specific, Measurable, Attainable (or Action-oriented), Realistic, and Timely) also helps you from becoming overwhelmed. If you know where you are headed, you can take it step-by-step to get there. And of course, hiring a life coach makes sense when you need a personal cheerleader, someone to listen and help guide you through life’s overwhelming moments.
