What keeps you up at night?

06/04/2011 07:58AM

Since we live in such stressful times, it's clear that many people lose sleep as their worries, concerns and challenges interfere with their abilities to feel good, hopeful, empowered and relaxed.  It's time to share those things that keep you up at night, literally or figuratively... since many people (myself included) sleep to avoid thinking about those stresses that are overwhelming, upsetting, frustrating and disturbing, among other feelings.  Let's start here with a list of those concerns, and I'll do my best to address them and through this blog we'll come up with some coping strategies...

The list starts here:

1 Too much to do and not enough time to do it all.... All too often we put way too much on our "to-do" lists and simply feel overwhelmed, inadequate, and like a failure when we don't get it all done.  It's time to be realistic and recognize all the things you do that aren't even on your list that impact how much of your list you can actually accomplish.  How many "little" things pop up in the course of the day that take your time and energy?  Take a look and give yourself credit for those tasks and activities...

The next thing you need to do is STOP!  BREATHE!  & FOCUS!  What are your priorities?  Are you doing at any given moment what it is you need to be doing, or have you gotten off course?  This one step can help you to think about what's on your list and what really needs to be on your list, and whether or not your expectations are realistic.  It's time to be honest about how much time things take and honestly assess the reality of getting things accomplished...

    We'll focus as well as time goes on as to how to deal with those feelings of inadequacy when we feel we have"fallen short" of our goals...  Keep this list growing...
