Feeling Overwhelmed? Practical Tips to Ease an Overcrowded Mind

Image of man looking as if he feels overwhelmed with words such as "stress" and "work" flying around his head.It’s a scientific fact that the average person has 68,000 thoughts per day. 90% of those thoughts are spent ruminating on all of the things that we don’t want to have in our lives. Modern causes of overwhelm are too much for most people to cope with.

We suffer from:

  • Competing demands and everything feeling urgent.
  • Micro-interruptions and distraction from the constant information flow that technology brings.
  • Work expectations and always being on duty.
  • Personal responsibilities.
  • FOMO (fear of missing out) because there are too many options.
  • Our inner critic is telling us that we aren’t good enough.

With all of these factors, it truly is commendable that we can capture even one sane thought a day. If you are interested in letting go of the overwhelm and learning how to break free from an overcrowded mind, watch my recent webinar with Levo. I offer a roadmap that will:

  • Illuminate why your mind feels overcrowded.
  • Help you identify who is really running things in your head.
  • Offer tools that will help you take control so that you can be the CEO of your thoughts;
  • And, Give practical tools that you can implement today to quiet your mind chatter.

“Thank you for the webinar today! It was really helpful to know that first and foremost I am not the only one with an overactive mind! I often feel like my brain is on overdrive with a million thoughts running through at the same time! I’ve tried to disconnect and even mediation in the past, but somehow I always fall off the bandwagon. I’d love to be able to implement something long term. One of my takeaways from today, which I have already started to implement, is to make a 10-minute to do list. I’ve tried lists before and have a few going right now, but I hope writing down the quick wins will help clear my mind from all the little things that need to be done and instead be able to focus on the bigger picture/projects,” Laura D. webinar participant said.

“Anxiety is nothing more than an over-active imagination.”
