Don’t allow the issue to consume you. Step outside of it to gain clarity.

Something big on your mind? Is it taking over your life?

Do not let it consume you. Step out of the situation for a while.

Do something else to distract you for a bit. The situation will still be there, but you’ll be in a clearer frame of mind.

Take a long walk. Spend some mindless time watching a documentary. Throw yourself into a project. Spend time with people who care for you. Dream about simpler times. Do whatever it is that you have been neglecting. (Create a short list of your go-to destressors that you can easily do when feeling overwhelmed.)

Time for self-care is not wasted time. It is using your time wisely.
