Feeling overwhelmed by the endless to-do and a life that feels mostly stressful most of the time? It's time to take control and edit your stress bucket. Think of it as a gentle dance of self-awareness and adjustments, not a one-time fix. Now, the fun part (IMO): the "Delete, Delegate, Different" method. Delete stressors that drain you and are unnecessary. Delegate tasks that others can handle, freeing up your time and energy. For stressors that can't be deleted or delegated, find ways to do them differently, reducing their impact on your stress levels.
Remember, editing your stress bucket is a process. Be patient with yourself, celebrate your progress, and don't hesitate to seek support when needed, this is exactly the work we support clients in all the time.

✨ 3 Takeaways from this episode:
If you’re walking around your life stressed out everyday, it’s time to sit down on your own, with us, or someone else to take a look at your stress bucket. Regulating your nervous system, living a regulated life, means that you are consciously engaged in the process of editing stressors. Life will never stop throwing things at you, you have to get good at doing what you need to do to create more space, a bigger buffer zone.
You can edit your stress bucket by taking a look at the things on your “controllables” or “kinda-controllables” lists and seeing what you can or want to delete, delegate, or do differently.
The heart of editing your stress bucket is about owning your no’s to protect your yes’s – and sometimes that means saying no to things you want to have more space for the things you want most. If you’re living a life where it feels like absolutely everything is important then it means nothing is. Take a deep breath, remind yourself you don’t have to get it all done today and pick one thing that matters most.
