We all have days where we feel overwhelmed. Yet, we still need to get things done.
When handled right, work can have a grounding effect that can help you through these days.
Find a task on your to-do list that is satisfying but not challenging - for example, writing a newsletter you've been doing for years.
When we perform highly familiar tasks, it's easy to get absorbed in them and go with the flow. A task that you can finish in one sitting will also give you a sense of accomplishment.
On a low day, tasks that you struggle to do in your time off can be the ideal choice. You could also try working on a task that's aspirational and creative. It will help you feel like a competent person whose life is in order.
When people feel low or short on self-confidence, they tend to retreat. When you act as though you have confidence in your ideas and capacities, it provides you with an antidote.
Trying to perform to a high standard when you're down can leave you so drained that you don't have the energy to process whatever is bothering you.
Try to do only half or two-thirds of your usual work. It can prevent you from feeling overwhelmed and procrastinating.
Withdrawing from people increases stress and reduces productivity. Try and tell at least one coworker what you're going through to help them understand why you may be a bit less reliable than usual.
Our best sources of support during difficult times are often our loose connections. Even small gestures of support from those weak ties can feel very helpful.
Don't assume that difficult emotions will negatively impact your work. Sad emotions often enhance creativity and productivity. Anger tends to make us feel more determined.
The key is to use those feelings to propel you rather than think that they will destroy your productivity.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
