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.
You don’t have to solve all the problems today
You don’t have to go fast. You just have to go
Keep calm, nobody else knows what they are doing either
Sometimes our stop doing lists needs to be bigger than our to-do list
Focus on progression not perfection
When you feel like quitting remember why you started
Be gentle with yourself, you’re doing the best you can
You don’t’ have to figure everything out at once
When life seems overwhelming keep calm and carry on
You can do anything, not everything
I wonder what would help you feel better
If you could make progress on just one thing now, what would it be?
So you're feeling like things are just too much for you now
What would you say your main priorities are right now?
Count on me if you ever need to talk
I'm interested to see how you resolve your situation
The sky has fallen a thousand times already
Your problems are the same problems human beings have always had
Being overwhelmed comes from a breakdown of your thoughts about your life, not a breakdown of your life
It is mathematically unlikely that your problems are as bad as you think they are
Things change pretty quickly when you start doing things instead of thinking so much
It is most tempting to not do things when you most need to do things
