When we’re constantly under pressure it can often feel like our brains
go into overdrive. We have a never-ending to-do list comprising everything from
emptying the cat litter to checking the agenda for this week’s board meeting.
We’ve not had a holiday for far too long, and all we really want to do is lay
on the beach and let someone else worry about what’s for dinner tonight.
we’re so frazzled we can’t bring ourselves to focus on the task in hand, things
get forgotten or overlooked, and before we know it we’re in trouble for
deleting an email we should have answered, or worse missing a school play that
we were sure was next week. Our brains are busy going at a hundred miles an
hour, but actually seem to be missing all the important things as we scramble
around trying to reach that fabled inbox zero or bake the perfect cake for the
Stop. Take a deep breath. Inhale and ground yourself in your
surroundings. Everything is doable, but one step at a time.
