This week you’re receiving Wellness Wednesday on Thursday!
I am a bit of a stickler for deadlines, especially personal ones. Every week I write an article which gets sent out in a newsletter every Wednesday, at the same time.
This week I was tackling a rather large topic, and wrote multiple versions of my answer without being happy with any of them. Then at the final hour (Tuesday night), I decided to record a video instead because it felt like a topic I wanted to chat about. It was late, and what seemed like a fairly straight forward project turned into technical issue after technical issue.
At midnight I threw in the towel and opted for sleep. I wasn’t getting anywhere, and my electronic devices were not cooperating. I knew whatever I put out at that point would not be something I was happy with. Time to rest, and regroup in the morning.
Well, Wednesday was a packed day with Goddess sessions and check-in calls. I felt this immense pressure weighing on me to get my Wellness Wednesday published, yet time constraints were keeping me from getting to it. I was feeling…OVERWHELMED!
Amazingly, that’s the exact topic I address this week, inspired by an email I received from an amazing young woman named Rashae. Rather than continue to stress myself out, I threw my notebook and phone into a bag, grabbed a towel, and headed for the beach!
I am happy to share with you this wobbly, squinty, sun in my eyes, far from perfect video on how to deal with feeling overwhelmed (hint: it has something to do with cutting yourself some slack!).
Sometimes we have to give ourselves a break. Sometimes we have to send out Wellness Wednesday on Thursday. Life happens, enjoy it, roll with it, do your best.
Take action now:
