For the past few days I have felt somewhat overwhelmed. I’ve felt like I’ve had so much to do. There were just not enough hours in the day for me to achieve everything I wanted to. I became more and more stressed as the hours remaining in the day slowly started to diminish. My anxiety spiralled too. But I am controlling it now.
There’s no point trying to split my efforts across a number of tasks. I’d much rather focus on one task at a time, knowing that I have completed each to the best of my ability. I don’t want to stretch myself too thin.
Nevertheless, I still feel like there’s a lot that I need to do. That I’m constantly pushed for time. That I’m in a rush. But I’ve realised that sometimes we have to slow down in order to get to where we want to be.
We must learn to prioritise the essentials; to take one task at a time and to fully immerse ourselves in it. If something doesn’t get done today, I’ll pop it at the top of tomorrow’s to-do list.
