A tip for the Season Of Overwhelm

Eve from Eve Rudkin Mindfulness

Hi Neighbours, are you feeling overwhelmed? Maybe you are distracted. Multi-tasking. Saying yes too much. Or not saying no enough. Committing and then not getting as much done as expected. Too many things on the to-do list and not enough hours in the day. And now it’s the holiday season and everything is on turbo-charge!

Here’s one tip that can help move your attention from all that over thinking and relentless planning.

Use your body as a way of becoming present. Take advantage of short moments of waiting during the day to switch your attention to what you are feeling in your body at this moment.

Start by taking an intentional breath into your chest and down through your abdomen. Emphasize the exhale to get all the air out. From there, you might simply feel the weight and the connection of your body to the chair you’re sitting in or your feet to the ground.
If you would like to train your ability to cope with overwhelm, good-quality mindfulness courses are proven to help.
