Marie T. Russell's Daily Inspiration

The focus for today is:  I give myself permission to say "no".

"Overload syndrome" is a temporary anxiety and depression state that results from becoming overburdened with too many work, household, volunteer, or social obligations, and it subsides promptly after reducing the excessive number of responsibilities. It can best be likened to overloading an electrical outlet and blowing a fuse.

The ideal management of the overload syndrome is to prevent it from occurring in the first place. First, one needs to learn when to say "no!" All it takes is an awareness of one's priorities.

Remember, it's easier to prevent the overload syndrome by anticipating your capacity, and saying "no" when it is necessary, than to over commit yourself into an anxiety and/or depression state. Nevertheless, once this occurs, you could still get prompt relief by cutting out the excessive obligations.

Today's Focus was inspired by the InnerSelf.com article:
