MondayMotivationWhen you feel overwhelmed or stuck, take a break.  In her book “I Could Do Anything If I Only Knew What it Was”, Barbara Sher recommends taking a break or doing something new when you feel stuck.

When I feel overwhelmed or stuck, I take Susan’s advice and stop whatever it is that I am doing.  I change focus and pick up a new book or get involved in a new project totally unrelated to whatever it is that I am doing.

This helps me relax and clear my mind.

The next time you are feeling overwhelmed or stuck, take a break and do something else.   Stop and take a deep breath, go out for a walk or a hike, spend some time with a good friend, read a new book, meditate, listen/dance to some music.  Taking a break instead of pushing yourself harder will help you re-energize and get refocused so that you are refueled and ready to go when you are ready to get back to your task at hand.

Have an amazing day and week!

In support and admiration,
