In this episode, James and Phoebe present five actionable tips for overcoming overwhelm in your life and business!

When you say that you don’t have the time, you’re living into that story and creating this reality. James notes that this isn’t really true and that we all have time in the day for the things that are important to us.

Overwhelm is something that we declare; a choice that we make about an interpretation of what our life is like in this moment.

He adds that we are completely useless when in a state of overwhelm, and not able to function when feeling powerless.

Five steps to overcoming overwhelm:

1. Acknowledge that is a choice

You have chosen to feel overwhelmed, and it isn’t something that just happened. Still, it’s not something to beat yourself up over.

2. Look at the time constraints

Is there room for change, and can you extend the deadline? Remember that the work you have to do will expand to fill the time you give yourself for it.

3. Review your “to-do” list

By doing this, you might see that someone else can do one or more of the tasks, which will help ease the feeling of being overwhelmed.

4. Recommit to the result, solution or outcome that you’re up to creating

To do this, go back to your “Why” and try to understand what ultimately got you feeling overwhelmed. Declare what you’re creating, which will lead you to the final step.

5. Figure out what your next action is

What is the one thing that can pull you out of this?

Remember, it’s your life and your business. You get to choose where you spend your time and your energy! Overwhelm will happen to everyone, but it’s important to get out of it as soon as possible by taking powerful actions.
