It’s common practice for salespeople and business professionals to get overwhelmed at work. The way this industry works requires attention to many different tasks, and it can be easy to find yourself focusing on too many to handle. Working hard should never be confused with overworking, especially when it affects our health. Here are a few tips to follow that will make being overwhelmed at work much easier to get through.


We’ve all been there. We sign our name up to get a lot of tasks done and it turns out to be too much work. Prioritizing these tasks is a great way to make sure you get the things done that need to get done. If you have any tasks with strict deadlines, be sure to do those first. Prioritizing is a simple step, but definitely one that we tend to forget.

If you continue to work for hours on end, you’re going to end up exhausting yourself. After doing a solid amount of work, don’t feel guilty taking a small real. Going outside for a walk, or even the water fountain to cool down will do a lot of help for your brain to calm down. Just remember to breathe, and that you will get through this.

Outsource Tasks

You should never feel like you are on your own. If you have a few things that someone else is capable of doing, feel comfortable asking them for help. Most times there are people that understand that you are swamped and will want to help. If you’re a person that finds it hard to ask for help, it would be important to start practicing, especially when you’re swamped.

Never lose confidence in yourself and say that you will ‘never get it done.’ Believing in yourself can do wonders; it will boost your mood while also helping to strengthen the hard-working in yourself. Confidence is key in many different areas of the business world. When we’re overwhelmed, remember the things you’ve done before and what got you here to this point

Realize You Have a Life Outside of Work

Work is an important part of our lives, but it’s not everything. Employers know that work is just a small aspect of what you represent. If you find yourself too overwhelmed to get everything done, it won’t be the end of the world. Calm yourself down by telling yourself that work is not what defines you.


Are you being held back?

There are times when we all have been held back. If not by virtue of our own fears then by circumstances or people that have sought to control our every move. In these moments it is hard  to recognize that we still have choices.

I recently took on a new client who has allowed me to tell her story. I will call her June. She is a young woman who was formerly a recruiter. She was one of their top performers but got burnt out. The company she worked for only paid her commissions based on the people she placed. Every month they would increase the amount she had to produce. Eventually, the pressure just became too much for her to handle. She was bringing in more business than ever and her commissions were getting smaller as the company tried to increase its profit margin.
