Stop the Overwhelm Part 1

Case Study

b2ap3_thumbnail_Overwhelm.jpgThe lounge is a mess, the garage even worse. Admin hasn’t been done for a month. I need to reply to about 20 emails from clients and workshop participants. The grocery cupboards are bare. It feels like I have 1,000 things on my to-do list. All of them are swimming in circles in my head, making me really crazy, contributing to a huge sense of panic and “I’ll never get it all done!” My stomach is in a knot, my heart is racing and my mind keeps jumping through all the things I haven’t done yet. And at the same time it feels like I cannot concentrate on one thing long enough to start doing it. Where do I start with this mess?

A sense of overwhelm is so unpleasant and unproductive! In my experience, it can also lead to procrastination. The mountain of tasks seem so huge that we can’t even begin to think where to start sorting through it all… and then the easiest is to ignore the mountainous list and escape with a nap or a book!

Values: What are they and what can they do for me?


I was working with a really amazing client yesterday. She's working through my new program "Six Weeks to a Guilt-Free No" and making enormous strides. She does homework diligently, is stepping out of her comfort zone, soaks up knowledge like a sponge and does her own tapping between the sessions.

The topic of yesterday's Module with my beautiful client was "Values". We first EFT'ed an enormous memory that had had huge ripple effects throughout the rest of her life.

Learning that I have Limits


I am slowly learning the value of pacing myself with tasks and appointments. I'm very slowly learning and accepting that just because someone else can work with many clients per day, does not mean that I should be able to do the same. 

I'm learning the value of acknowledging and respecting my limits where it comes to "output". 

In the two recent weeks, I over-scheduled "talking" appointments. By that I mean appointments where I have to do a lot of talking, like working with a client, or even lunch with a friend. And by Friday (two weeks in a row) I was finished. My energy was low and enthusiasm only a trickle...

“At the end of your life, you will never regret not having passed one more test, not winning one more verdict or not closing one more deal. You will regret time not spent with a husband, a friend, a child, or a parent.“ ~ Barbara Bush
