Some Follow-up Resources (Manage Overwhelm)

March 30, 2012

UPDATE (DEC 2013):  if the topic of managing overwhelm is of interest to you – I just launched a new book called, Ease – Manage Overwhelm in Times of Crazy Busy. You can get it at most online book retailers. Read here for more!

 

During my Webinar this week (recording now available), I shared a lot of ideas related to managing our ‘overwhelm’. Learning to say ‘no’ when appropriate; practising focus and being mindful (not ‘mind full’!); and getting enough sleep. And a ton more. Here are a few resources as a follow-up. More to come….we’ll keep this conversation going for some time (in different shapes and sizes).

Tame Those Overwhelm Gremlins— an article I wrote for the Globe and Mail that summarizes some of the topics discussed on the webinar.

Webinar (free): Are You Addicted to the Yes Habit

Articles: IE interviewed me just a few weeks ago on this topic which resulted in two articles. “Learn to Say No – Part I” — and “The Proper Way to Say No — Part II”

Book: Eat Well, Age Better, Live Strong – by Aileen Burford Mason : Aileen’s book delves into nutrients and the brain and deals with stress, fatigue, sleep issues and more. It’s hot off the press!

Have You Done Your Ta Da List Yet? A past issue of my newsletter got all into this – lotsa stuff here!

-Mindfulness at Work: We talked about practising mindfulness at work. If you think mindfulness is too zen for you and only for buddists think again. Wendy Woods (disclosure – a friend) has written an interesting article  about meditating at work and managing overload.

And so much more….feel free to weigh in and send comments, tips, other resources. In the meantime, it’s Friday and I need to do my ‘ta da list’ to complete my week 🙂

Would you like more tips/strategies on how to tame your overwhelm gremlin? How to get a grip on the stuff that has a grip on you? Read on!

That was a wonderful experience!  So many turned out for yesterday’s Webinar on Taming the Overwhelm Gremlin. Thank you CICA for hosting this. If you missed it – you can still log in and register to listen/view the presentation.  It was a jam-packed hour and I received a lot of great feedback and a lot of terrific questions at the end. But I wish we had more time – there’s so much more! This is a big topic and yes, more than what I could  pack into one hour.  Would you like more too? If so, please read on:

Given the interest and all the ‘stuff’ that couldn’t possibly fit into one session, I’d like to share more so that you can make ‘taming your overwhelm gremlin’ a reality. If you are game and want more:

Send me an email, or …

-Hit the ‘subscribe to my newsletter’ link (look to the right column for this)

…and include a note that you’d like ‘more on taming overwhelm’. I’ll include you in my ‘not-so-monthly’ newsletters AND I am creating a special series on ‘overwhelm’ and you will be on a special list and the first to get news, tips, and other stuff on this topic.

What are you waiting for? Get on board!

In the meantime, I will be posting some resources you can tap into right away that dive deeper into some of the ideas I spoke of yesterday. Stay tuned — back  real soon!
