Time and time again, I hear nutrition entrepreneurs talk about how they feel overwhelmed. That’s why, for this episode, I’m sharing a clip from one of my coaching calls inside of the Nutrition Business Accelerator Program. When this topic comes up, I work to help reframe the feeling of overwhelm so that we can all take back the power we have and move forward with confidence.

What We Really Mean When We Say We’re Overwhelmed

It’s important to really understand what we’re saying when we say that we’re overwhelmed. When you boil it down, we’re saying that we feel we can’t achieve our goals given the time we have. But the things that we believe we need to do are often the things we’ve chosen.

I’ve found from addressing my own overwhelming situations that this simple switch in thinking goes a long way. I accept that there might be aspects of a task I won’t get done. Recognizing that I don’t have total control over everything is freeing. Anything that I accomplish is a win when I’m working towards the goals that I have chosen to set for myself.

Shifts to Make When You’re Overwhelmed

When you are starting to feel a sense of overwhelm, I want you to do the following. Start by asking yourself what you can still be proud of even if you don’t reach all your goals. This will help you relax some of your expectations and accept that whatever you do, it will still be enough.

Furthermore, don’t fall into the trap of setting unnecessary deadlines. Assess when tasks actually need to get done so you’re not creating unneeded pressure.

Comparisons also lead to overwhelm. Everyone’s progress is different. You’re not falling behind just because someone is ahead of you.

These mindset shifts center on not getting too far ahead of yourself. Focus on the task at hand. Take a step forward and see what happens. You can, and should, always reassess as you go, but you don’t need a complete picture from the start. This avoids the trap of trying to figure it all out before you’re ready to begin.
