Many blended families cause feelings of overwhelm. Not only are blended families more complex, there is usually so much more to do and handle. In addition, many of the challenges blended families face add to the overwhelm. Although these feelings are magnified during the holiday season, they really can carry on all year long. My top ten tips to deal with overwhelm are


  1. Get in the present moment
  2. Put it all down on paper
  3. Only handle what you can
  4. Meditate
  5. Learn to say no
  6. Tame your inner perfectionist
  7. Let go of control
  8. Take a break
  9. Do some breathing exercises
  1.     Quit judging yourself
