What simple tools do you access to collect yourself when feeling overwhelmed?
One that I was inspired to create and which forms the base of my Powerful Planning sessions is "What's Good In Hand?".
1. Take a breath (inspiration).
2. Trace your hand (with finger or pen on paper). Go as slow as what feels good for you and as many times as it feels good. For a stronger sensation, spiral your finger on your palm.
3. List 1 to 5 "needs" that you know you can access the means to uplift in this moment (e.g., call a friend for connection or jump up and down for physically-induced joy).
4. Do as many of these as you need to overcome overwhelmed.
Hopefully this helps you, like it has me, feel more secure/calm/powerful to make plans on how to best move forward.
