A Logical Approach to Anxiety or Overwhelm
When you’re feeling overwhelmed or anxious, use logic and keep the feelings out of it. Separate your emotions from the logical thinking, so the logical part of your brain can deal with the problem or the long list of things unfeelingly. The logical side could not care less about how much you have to do or what fires you have to put out. It will work systematically and logically for as long as you need it to, being productive and efficient.
When it comes time to make decisions or get a clear understanding, bring in the feeling part of your brain and your intuition. With practice, we can learn to use each powerful part of our brains to our advantage.
