When faced with overwhelm, especially of the nature of balancing work and a personal life, I realize that I am not chunking it down. I'm a big fan of lists. Color-coded ones. I write down all the things I need to do. I give myself deadlines. I find where I can delegate. I make manageable to-do lists. Slowly but surely, everything begins to feel doable when I say, "answer phones messages before 10 am on Tues." insted of my internal screaming of, "All these people are breathing down my neck!!!"

OK, so I am some kind of overly organized control freak, but excel spreadsheets and my outlook calendar work for my anxiety!
