The One Where I Was Overwhelmed

I woke up at 530 am yesterday, with probably a million things running through my head. Then this happened (https://toabettersarahraisingsophia.wordpress.com/2021/06/18/the-one-where-i-do-not-know-if-i-am-fine/). I ended the afternoon feeling positive! Like I said, not every thing is going great, but I can manage.

I got my weekend cut out for me, a pretty busy one actually. Then at night, I got bad news, and I suddenly felt my heart beat faster and my legs turned to lead. I laid down on my bed and closed my eyes and wished my mind would quiet down for a while. I tried breathing exercises but it was barely working, I was so riled up. (The problem was sorted out a little after lunch, so all good).

I was able to sleep before 11pm and I remember I woke up a lot in the middle of the night but willed myself to close my eyes again (after checking the time, hoping it is time to get up). I did not open them fully until I have had at least 7 hours of sleep.

My appointment in BGC got canceled, and to be honest, I am kind of glad it did, because I am not in the mood right now. It is almost 4pm and so far, my greatest accomplishment for the day is taking a shower and breaking my fast. I got tons to do, and I am a bit overwhelmed I do not know where to start.

I keep putting off what needs to get done by doing small things like making ice cream with Sophia, listening to songs, reading… I just finished working out, thinking it ought to make me feel better. When I am swamped, I usually make a list of what needs to be done, and with the smallest step possible (1. Turn on the computer. 2. Open Google drive and access this file etc), it makes the tasks seem easier and doable. And when I look at it, I feel confident I could do them.

What do you do when you feel overwhelmed?
