Notice when you have that feeling of urgency, the low-level, low-lying stress, that sense of not-enough-time and overwhelm of what you need to do, what is before you. Recognize the familiarity of the feeling and stop.

Choose the most effective response:

  • Ask yourself: What do I need most this moment? What do I need most this moment–not the things around me, tasks required of me, but what do I need?
  • Remember, you are in the driver’s seat. You direct the thoughts and feelings of your mind. You take precedence. If you are “off,” so will the things around you.
  • Prioritize your needs. Take a moment to do what you need most to feel settled, secure, and in control, then continue with the tasks before you. Remember, do what is important first, not urgent.
