This was an idea worth sharing.
We’ve all been there at some point in our lives. Where the pressure becomes so great, we’re overwhelmed with what we ‘need’ to do. Well, that’s what happened to me when I had an emotional breakdown at the end of 2013.
“Empathy is the antidote to shame. The two most powerful words when we’re in struggle: me too.”
This talk picks up in the second half and is all-out beautiful by the end. It will make you want to dare greatly. (8.7 million views)
Listening to Shame by Brene Brown
Feeling overwhelmed comes from looking at the future and all the things we need to do. It’s running around inside your head and it’s spinning, you’re adding more and more to the list. You’re freaking out and thinking how can I possibly achieve all these things?
A simple task to help with feeling overwhelmed…
Take a piece of paper and write down all the things you ‘need’ to do and on the right side of the paper, write what is important, delete what is not important, and what can be delegated. For example, some bigger tasks at work, may need to be done by you. Grabbing milk from the shops, perhaps your husband or a friend could do this for you.
It is totally ok for us to admit we are not coping and need time out for ourselves. Being a beauty therapist, this is what I frequently witness with my clients. They arrive to the salon stressed and fatigued, overwhelmed and exhausted. By the time our clients leave they feel more connected with themselves and what’s really important in their lives. They look and feel rested, relieved to experience time for themselves, and we observe an overall slowing down of their pace.
It’s important to look after yourself
When we’re operating at a fast pace, our cortisol levels are increased which stimulates stress in the body. Stress effects our sleep, energy and the way we look and feel.
A beautiful way for you to look and feel your best, is by allowing yourself the time for a facial. The benefits of facials are vast, however, perhaps the most powerful benefit is the power of touch. Touch has shown to lower blood pressure, heart rate, and cortisol levels, stimulate the memory centre of the brain, and drive the release of a host of hormones that link to positive and uplifting emotions, as found by Tiffany Filed, the head of the Touch Research Institute at the University of Miami’s Miller School of Medicine.
