Am I taking on too much?

Tuesday, September 28, 2010

I have to admit I am a bit scared. Don't get me wrong I am very happy and excited about my new job starting soon. What I am scared about is that not only am I going to be starting a new job and learning lots of new things, I am also going back to school and taking not one but two classes online at the same time. I am scared that I am going to get overwhelmed and lose control. I will be going from unemployed and taking a long break from school, doing not much in the way of learning anything to working on learning 3 new things at once. I am working really hard at keeping up with healthy eating and working out regularly. I don't want to get overwhelmed because the first thing to go is usually my workout. Then my healthy eating will be out the window. I am going to do my best to take things one at a time.

    Wow, you are taking on a lot at once, but I think that if you stay focused you will be fine. When I get overwhelmed by the other things in my life, I find that staying focused on healthy eating and exercising help me stay balanced. Make exercise and healthy eating a priority and you will do great!

    You can do it. It might be hard at first and require lots of adjusting and readjusting but eventually it will all work itself out.

    Good luck!

    That does sound like a lot and it's easy to get overwhelmed. What works for me when I'm going nuts with too much work is to recall that working out (even if it's a walk) always helps me feel better. I've even been known to just up and leave my desk to walk around downtown for 15 minutes to clear my head. I also remind myself that motivation FOLLOWS action ... so Nike has it right in some ways ... Just Do It! Good luck; I know you will succeed.
