In this episode of The Balanced Educator Podcast, we are sharing strategies that we’ve learned to ditch the feeling of overwhelm.
We talk about how we’re the ones creating the feeling of overwhelm in ourselves and we share a tool with you that we use to help ourselves feel more calm and balanced.
We chat about how when we feel overwhelmed, we need to change our perception of the situation, not the situation itself. We have the power to choose how we look at things. When we change the way we look at things, the things we look at change.
This is a powerful strategy to apply in our lives, but it takes practice. Today, we share 3 concrete ways we can practice changing our perception to one that makes us feel better.
By having a mindfulness practice and becoming aware of our emotions, we can catch ourselves before the feeling of overwhelm becomes too great.
We also share how we can teach children about perception with the use of a visual image.
