      By nature, I am a VERY resilient person, but to faciiatate  things I’d like to ask “what do you do when there is too much to do and little time to do it?  I hate feeling  unproductive.  How do you keep yourself focused and and less disarray? That is something I’ve NEVER been good at.

        • Today I had one of those days where I felt very overwhelmed which is not like me at all so I put some music on and then thought of something which I knew would make me cry laughing so I’ll share

        • I make a list and systematically go down each item ticking of as I complete.  

          A few years ago my doctor told me to stop making lists.  He felt that it was contributing to my stress level because I never had time to sit and relax.  He said to just do what absolutely needed to be done and factor in time for myself.  

          I still make lists.  But now I add a leisure item just for me and omit those non-essential items (like cleaning out the closets, painting the laundry room and fixing the flowerbeds).   I have also been assigning more stuff to my son.

        • I have been overwhelmed lately. I shut down and don’t want to get out of the house. I also cry and become angery. Then I realize that I need to relax this is when I have kick back days. Yesterday I got out of the house I enjoyed every minute of it. I need to get out more often.
