Because it is their nature to jump into problem-solving mode or helping others, these individuals may take on more work and responsibility exacerbating their stress and overwhelm.

An opportunity to speak to a supervisor to address priorities could help make the best use of your time and energy at work.
Focus on those aspects of your life that you can control such as routines for a walk, journaling, or other self-care routine to bring some predictability.
