Overcoming a difficult time: when molehills become mountains

caged bird looking out

Does it ever feel like the universe has conspired against you just when things are going right? One domino wobbles, and before you know it, the whole pile has fallen. The dominoes don’t need to be significant events. They can be just minor disturbances. But these tiny disturbances piled on top of each other can sometimes seem insurmountable. How do you overcome this? 

Well, first of all, you take a while to sit and cry. It is overwhelming to deal with a full plate of things that need to be fixed or just waited out to pass. Then you roll up your sleeves and get to work. Start small.

Did you know that the minute it takes to make your bed can lift your mood significantly? You might think looking at a messy bed is not a big deal, but that’s one less clutter your mind sees. Next, tackle the dishes.

Some things cause anxiety but are out of your control. It helps to take a deep breath and remind yourself that you’ve done all you can, and now it’s up to the universe to take it further. 

I find myself losing my temper more often when I have a list of unchecked to-do’s. In that state, I am often unable to tick off the top priority tasks. But, starting with the easiest or fastest helps me get my groove back.

What are some ways you tackle a slump in your schedule?
