Too Much

less than 1 minute

Yesterday it was all too much.  Too much to do, not enough time, too much noise, not enough peace and quiet, too much laundry and house repairs,  or…you name it, there was just too much of it.  Too many distractions in a very busy day.

So I tried my usual trick of stopping the clock every 55 minutes, to take 5 minutes out of every hour and do something else, affirmations, meditation, have a nice cuppa tea, whatever works.  I find it stops that sense of overwhelm.  I’m sending a message to my brain that I have all the time or peace and quiet in the world.  The interesting thing is that my brain believes me.

This sums up perfectly what it felt like.  Ring any bells for you?

Kudos to Learning Fundamentals for this great mindmap on beating distractions, based on Leo Babauta’s e-book.

Encourage one another.

Love Elle.
