This is one of my favorite quick and dirty mindfulness techniques. The best part is that you don’t need any special spaces or tools.
When you’re feeling overwhelmed, tidying the area around you restores order to a little corner of your universe and allows you to move forward.
If you’re feeling overwhelmed, cut everything that should be done and stick to things that need to get done.
Multitasking works about as well as texting while driving—which is to say, it doesn’t. So, if your nerves are frayed, mend them by doing one thing at a time.
When you feel frozen in the proverbial headlights of your task, think only of the next tiny step. The next step can be ridiculously small.
