How To Feel Less Busy

“I recommend you take care of the minutes and the hours will take care of themselves.” – Earl of Chesterfield

I have been feeling overwhelmed for a while, especially recently. I have added more work to my daily schedule, and it can feel sometimes hard to keep up with everything, be on top and find time to finish all of your tasks as well as having time for yourself (almost none in the past week for me!).

So if you’re going through that feeling, please know that you are not alone.

Feeling overwhelmed, you need a break!

Stop saying you’re busy

Words have an amazing power on how you feel, and how you perform. So stop saying and thinking that you are busy. It’s a situation, but do not define yourself by being busy. Instead focus on other emotions and try using other words as of what you are currently doing. It will really change the way you feel.

Make a List

A to-do list will help you see things clearer in your mind and define a schedule. Once you do a list of all the tasks that you have to do, establish order of priority.

We tend to to go first to the easiest to do it, it doesn’t help. You should do first the hardest task you have to get done, first thing in the morning. that is when you still have your energy. Also accomplishing the most important and biggest task first will motivate you for the rest to come.

One thing at a time

The say to do 2 things at once is to do neither. Once you already have your to do list, just start one thing after the other. When you are working on something just focus on it, try not to multitask it will overwhelm you even more.

Have a break

Take a break every now and then, even if it is only 15minutes. Try to get outside, breathe some fresh air. you workday better after that.

So what do you think, are you ready to try and take those advice? 

If you have any other idea or tips please let me now in the comments, I’ll take it!

  1. I love the to-do list and taking a break for yourself. Great advice, Gia!

    Here in L.A., we live in a fast-paced culture where everyone is always saying, they’re “busy.” Rarely, do you encounter someone who says, “I’m slowing down and enjoying every moment.”

    Here’s my advice: instead of saying/thinking you’re busy and feeling overwhelmed, just take a quiet moment for yourself, and think of five things you’re grateful for. When you have a thankful heart, it helps put things in perceptive.

  2. To do lists are definitely one of my go tos, when you focus on one task at a time it makes all the difference. My little trick is to sprinkle some super easy ones in there like take the trash out or shower or whatever because some days even those little tasks can seem overwhelming but when I focus on one thing at a time I find that I’m crossing off more things off my list and I start to feel productive which naturally gets you motivated to accomplish more.

    1. I do the same! I even write down for breakfast or lunch what to do or eat sometimes! So I don’t have to waste time thinking :))
