I've just read an article "5 Unexpected Ways to Deal When You're Overwhelmed at Work", and in many ways it makes a lot of sense. Take time to plan, take a break, talk with a colleague, and get a full night's sleep are all great suggestions. I am not so sure about working at the weekends, but I guess if on the rare occasion it gets you through the week it may be worth doing.
That said, I was left feeling that it's easy to know what to do and at times a lot harder to make it happen. How do you effectively plan when you're feeling overwhelmed by everything? What will allow you to get a good night's sleep when you can't switch off due to the amount you have going on? When can you take a break with the work piling up?
Coaching can provide some real answers when dealing with work. Techniques to help you plan more effectively, relaxation skills to let you switch off at night, and above all else a change in mind set, so that you not only feel in control but you are in control. Just imagine! An end to that overwhelming, stress-inducing pattern which causes so many sleepless nights. You know you can do it... all you need is some support to move to where you want it to be.
