Sometimes, people take on more than they can handle and start to feel overwhelmed about it. To help, you can ask the person affected how much stuff they promised to get done, the deadlines, and which is more important to finish first. If they are having trouble organizing, ask them if there is anything they can let go to concentrate on the more important things. One of the best things you can do is to show them support, not to tell them to calm down or to not do any work at all.
