One day at a time.
Starting with clean pants may seem trivial.
Sadly, it's a luxury for many who struggle to get out of bed to face another day. Feeling vulnerable under the weight of responsibilities. Overwhelmed by money decisions.
My guidance - Begin with small steps.
Find solace in the little victories.
Even if it's just tending to personal hygiene.
Refreshing your body can also work for the mind, providing a momentary escape from the chaos of thoughts.
And then, perhaps consider some or all of the following:
Break things down. Prioritise based on risk and impact (Now, Soon, Later).
Deal with the Now. One decision at a time.
Automate wherever possible – bills, repayments, fees.
Less decision-making means less stress.
Waste not – your time, energy, or money.
Let go of anything that diminishes your capacity and well-being.
Delegate tasks. Your breakthrough might be just an email or call away – to your bank, a debt charity, a friend, or a coach/adviser.
Banish the "Shoulds" from your language.
They often carry unnecessary weight, breeding shame and guilt.
Simplify – it's okay to aim for less.
The harshest judgments usually come from ourselves.
Try again. Don't let past decisions dictate your future success.
Use your wisdom to embrace new opportunities.
