Has life ever handed you multiple complicated situations at once? All simultaneously entering your life from out of nowhere? It feels like you have no room to breath and have no clue where to start. Every direction you turn there seems to be another problem tacked onto your list. I know this feeling and I believe you do too!

It makes you want to SCREAM!!! The only two words that pop to mind are, “I’m overwhelmed”! The reasons for being overwhelmed are numerous. There are times when life just happens to simply be overwhelming, but there are there times we do it to ourselves. Sometimes we take on more than we can handle and end up doing MORE damage.

There will come a time when you simply just have to STOP! JUST STOP! Stop overthinking everything, chill out and take a DEEP breath. It’s going to be okay. Yes, you have responsibilities and matters to handle, but the most important thing here is to properly manage them and not beat yourself up along the way.

As I said before, there are MANY factors contributing to this level of STRESS which is why I encourage people to simply SLOW DOWN. Think about exactly WHAT is overwhelming you and WHY. From there, check to see if there are ways to limit the stress by breaking things down into little fragments. Prioritize that list by most important and then tackle the little fragments one-by-one.

Go through this process until everything that is NEEDED to be done, gets done! Take another break and restart the process with the other items left on the list. The key here is to “tread lightly” and slowly knock out what needs to be handled in a much more organized straight-forward manner; this will in turn reduce stress/anxiety.

Lastly, you have to remember WHY you STARTED! If you are stressed out because of school, remember what the initial goal was. Whether it was to attain credits, deepen your knowledge or attain a diploma, you must come back to that starting line. Remember WHY you wanted to reach this goal and remind yourself that it is ABSOLUTELY worth it! This can be applied to work, finances, relationships and spirituality. Take your time and really think things through. There may be a few “cuts” that may be necessary to eliminate some of the stress. Do what needs to be done so that your stress levels and the feeling of being overwhelmed are manageable.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE SLOW DOWN and NEVER allow the stress/anxiety swallow you up so much your overwhelming feeling freezes you from taking action on anything. I hope this helps! I shot a corresponding video to this post and placed it on my Facebook fanpage, you can CHECK IT OUT HERE

Robin Williams

With the recent death of Robin Williams, due to depression, I believe it is important for me to reach out to my friends and let them know that I care about them. We never know when someone precious to us will pass away. Life is so fragile and it is a time like this we must reflect on what is important. We don’t know EXACTLY why things like this happen.

“You’re only given one little spark of madness. You mustn’t lose it.” –Robin Williams

Clearly, depression is a serious disease and is running rampant throughout our society. I pray that God places his healing hand on everyone that is suffering from depression. I DO NOT have a solution (nor can I 100% relate), but I have been down in the dumps and depressed several times in my life.

I have found a few things helped ME move out of this emotional state and into a healthier mindset; so I figured I should share. (My intentions are Not to offend anyone)

“No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world.” –Robin Williams

Why? What’s your “WHY”? I am referring to your purpose in life. This has ALWAYS helped me transfer into a more positive emotional state. I have found that reminding myself of my real purpose in life, helps generate affirmative thoughts. I also try to be optimistic about every situation I encounter; having the mindset that everything will work out for the better.

I found that acknowledging that I am NOT in control of every SINGLE thing that happens in the world, but I can control my perception. I also found that I do not need to find an explanation for EVERYTHING, as things reveal themselves when the student is ready. Lastly, being grateful and trusting God with my life’s path has kept me on my path to becoming the best version of myself.

My friends, lets continue to take care of our minds, bodies, and souls. Just know that I am here for you if you need to talk. Hug your loved ones and express your gratitude towards them. With that, I leave you with this:

“Reality: What a concept!” –Robin Williams
