Under Water

UnsplashdrowningYes, this is a bit of an intense picture (notice though, she is breathing). However, being overwhelmed or “under water” in your work, is intense as well. As I looked at this picture, I thought about how stress and overwhelm curtail your productivity and performance. They wear you down, affect your physical, mental and emotional well being, diminish your judgment, get you off center and weaken you.

You don’t want to be there and it is worth the time and effort to maintain balance in your life. Keep yourself above water, swimming strong and enjoying the view.
