Choosing your Battles

Life is busy and there always seems to be a lot going on, not necessarily just in our professional, personal and family lives but also around us, in society and the world we live in. It can at times feel a bit overwhelming.

A lot of us are no strangers to having to multi task or juggle several things at the same time. We often also have more than one area in our lives or more than one issue that we want to work on or need to process or deal with.

And let's not forget about looking after ourselves, making sure we eat relatively healthily, do some form of exercise, have some me time and connect with our friends and loved ones.

It's a LOT.

My advice is:

Choose your Battles.

You can't do everything and you can't work on everything all at once. It's too much, too overwhelming and perhaps most importantly not sustainable.

Take some time to reflect on what matters most to you right now.

What is the most urgent thing you need to work on?

For example, it could be that you need to eat a bit more healthy to improve your physical wellbeing. It might be that you're going through a tough break up and need some time and space to lick your wounds and heal. It might be that you're feeling stressed or burnt out and need some time to re-charge your batteries. It might be that your anxiety is getting in the way of you doing the things you want to do and you would like to work on that.

It might be all of the above.

Choose one thing and focus your efforts on that. It will be more manageable and less overwhelming.

If you try to work on everything all at once, your attention and energy will be divided and you will exhaust yourself. You might also put yourself under too much pressure.

The key thing to change is that it is sustainable in the long run and manageable. This ensures that whatever change you are making is long lasting.

And don't forget to recognise the progress you are making and to celebrate your wins :)
