There’s more to overwhelm than simply having too much to do. In fact, when it comes to overwhelm, it’s not always what needs to be done that causes the pain, it’s the emotions that overpower us as we think about all the to-do’s.
So give yourself this time today to release the tasks,
And the emotions,
So you can feel good.
So Let’s Begin…
RELEASE YOUR OVERWHELM MORNING MEDITATION SCRIPT
Take a nice, deep cleansing breath in through your nose,
And exhale slowly through your mouth
Relax into the gentle cadence of your breathing,
Letting it slow you down,
And soften you.
You’re feeling the squeeze,
The pressures of life.
The tasks are piling up,
The list of things keeps growing,
Until you feel the suffocating weight upon you.
Find your breath again,
And imagine yourself gathering them all up.
All the things on your to-do list,
All the goals that are pressing down on you,
All the responsibilities you hold.
Gather them up,
Then tighten and squeeze your entire body.
Tighten your fists,
Clench your jaw,
Harden your belly,
Lengthen your legs.
Hold it all here for just a moment longer,
Now everything you’ve gathered,
Everything you’ve been holding,
Everything that’s tightened…
Release it all on your outbreath.
And feel yourself soften,
Release the tension,
All of the expectations,
Release them now,
And let them all melt away.
