How to Start Homesteading When Feeling Overwhelmed Vlog

Prioritize and Focus

The first thing you should do is make a list of everything you want to get done that day.

Next, prioritize these tasks.

Decide what needs to be done first, then second, then third, and so on (if you even have more than one thing on your list).

Once your tasks are prioritized, work on the first one and concentrate solely on that task

Ask for Help 

There’s nothing wrong with asking for help.

No one can do it all, and nor should you. 

Just like in the business world, there will always be something you aren’t very good at and/or dislike.

Do the things you can/want to do, and outsource the rest. 

Take a Time Out 

When you work too hard without taking a break, you will start to become ineffective and are more likely to make mistakes.

In the homesteading world, these mistakes could cause injury or worse.

So be sure to take a break, clear your mind, and then return to your work.

Don’t feel guilty about it.

You’ll end up getting more work done. Even though you’re working less, you’ll be more efficient at doing the tasks when you are working.
