Overwhelmed

I have not written in a while, and I don't really have an excuse.  I say that I am overwhelmed, but is it any different than the years where I wrote a lot more?  I would say, "no". 

So what is it?  I think I have found myself in my head a lot more lately.  What does this mean?  For me, it means I keep having some of the same negative self-talk, or maybe a better description is, "frustrated mantra" repeating over and over in my head. 

What did I used to do to get past this or avoid it all together?  I think there were 3 main components.  I have realized 2 of the 3 I am not doing.  For me they are Exercise, Sleep Well, and Write.  I have been exercising lately, but the other 2 have been a struggle.  So by writing this blog, I have now done the writing part. 

I am headed to exercise, now if I could just get to bed earlier.

I then think any feeling of being overwhelmed, won't go away, but will be easier to manage. 

Stress is good, feeling defeated (overwhelmed) is not.  I want to go back to being stressed! That sounds funny just typing it.
