Just when things were settling into a new ‘normal’, we’re about to face a whole lot of change again.
And with change comes a lot of uncertainty and with that can come overwhelm and paralysis.
Should you do this? Or that?
Would it work better this way? Or that way?
Hundreds of questions and thousands of solutions all running around your head causing havoc and absolutely nothing getting done.
The first thing to do when that happens is breathe! Box Breathing works well.
This will get you out of fight or flight mode and into a state where you can actually do something.
Just Take One Step
What gets you through a marathon? The knowledge that if you just keep putting one foot in front of the other, you will eventually make it to the finish line.
The same goes right now.
What is one small step you can take today to keep you moving?
Break down what it is you’re trying to do and start there.
Some Steps You Can Take
Here are some example of tiny steps you can take today to keep moving:
- Look up a workout idea to use in your next session
- Make a list of all the things you want to get done
- Message 3 clients and see how they’re doing
- Do a very rough draft of an email newsletter
- Download and store your recorded workouts in one place for later
No need to do them all, just pick one and go from there.
Now over to you.
What are you feeling overwhelmed by right now? What is one tiny step you can take today?
