We must learn to moderate our own expectations, both of others and of ourselves. We need to learn to slow down and take things as they come.
We all have periods when we feel completely overwhelmed. Whether it’s work or life not going as planned, or something not going as planned, our emotions might all come rushing together and make us feel like we’re out of control. To conserve our emotional energy, we must learn to simplify things and focus on one task at a time. Sarah Crosby, a therapist, offered some advice.
- We must learn to moderate our own expectations, both of others and of ourselves. We need to learn to slow down and take things as they come.
- The media and the information it contains are immensely significant in our daily life. When we are feeling overwhelmed, we should learn to consume media consciously and allow our minds to settle down.
- We should also sort through our own ideas and seek to comprehend how and why we feel the way we do.
- We must also sort through our own thoughts and learn from them to understand how we feel and why we feel like that.
- We must learn to emphasise relaxation and sleep and to distinguish between work and rest.
- When we are embarrassed about not doing anything correctly, we should not let it impact us; instead, we should use it as an opportunity to be interested and learn something new.
- Having a pastime and earning money to pursue it is a fantastic approach to relieving stress and learning to slow down.
