Feeling Less Overwhelmed

Anxiety results when too many problems mount.

I broke into broadcasting in radio news – in a newsroom with all hell breaking loose most of the day and sometimes into the night.

I never felt overwhelmed.

More overwhelmed today because you’re always on, always connected, and seemingly in over your head – at least in a newsroom you gather, write and air your work over and over with breaks in between to catch your breath.

The secret to feeling less overwhelmed is to slow down not speed up.

Deliberately slow the pace and do one thing at a time before moving on to the next – the key word being deliberately.

Multi-tasking is the enemy to feeling less overwhelmed.
