Throughout this year, several bloggers will engage in a conversation here and on their blogs — asking questions of each other and responding. Others are absolutely welcome to join the conversation, as well. Learn more about the ladies of Blogversation 2012.
Today’s question comes from Jennifer Worick, jenniferworick.blogspot.com, on Twitter as @jennifer_worick:
When things become overwhelming, how do you find balance, cope, or just plain get through it?
I’ve had three massive deadlines. I wish I could say they were back to back but they overlapped, because I clearly have a hard time saying no. And this has led to me working until I go to bed, finding myself unable to sleep because of a racing mind, snapping because of a short temper, indulging in my victim/martyr complex, etc. So I have been trying different things: focusing on one task at a time, focusing on just what needs to be done today, meditation, massage, baths, isolation, etc.
So I’m asking this question in hopes of finding some kindred spirits, but also some concrete strategies to find balance during this lopsided period.
