Ever feel super overwhelmed because your “to do” list is never going to end? Or because you’re facing this huge obstacle and you are not sure how you will get through it?

Ever feel like shutting down or crawling into a dark hole because facing the day is just too hard?

I know I’ve felt that way. And it’s not fun.

A question I like to ask when I’m feeling overwhelmed or have a lot going on is “how do you eat an elephant?”

Someone once asked me this question, and the answer has stuck with me ever since then. So seriously, how do you eat an elephant?


When you are faced with a million different things at work or at home and you don’t feel you can do it, simply stop and take a breather. Then move forward one step at a time, one bite at a time. And before you know it, you will be done. You may need a little help in achieving this sense of calm initially, for example, Click here to find out how to make your own homemade stress remedy. But once you have cleared your mind, you will find that you are far better able to tackle the challenge ahead.

Anytime I get overwhelmed I remind myself, one bite at a tim Jhon. One step at a time. I got this.

So, the next time you are feeling overwhelmed at the pile of laundry, the never ending tasks at work or the hundreds of emails, remember, one step at a time. Give yourself a little pep talk and keep moving forward.
