I really relate to what you are going through, esp. the 30 tab thing. I get really easily overwhelmed, so one of the things I do is I have a limit, 5, only 5 things. If I am price comparing, researching, trying to learn about a new topic- I stop at 5 things. Also, when I need to know what to do next I ask myself “What do I need to do right now to take care of myself?” and “What absolutely has to get done today?” Doing these things makes it less overwhelming for me. Another idea I just had was: What was something that you wanted really badly and how did you go about getting it? I try to remember what that pursuit felt like, then imagine applying it to what I want now. Hope that helps.
