When my house gets messy and it starts to feel overwhelming, I don't try to clean it perfectly right away. I designate one corner of a room (or big laundry basket) to hold all the bits and pieces that need to be put somewhere else, and clean the rest of the room. It saves a lot of running around the house in circles putting things away and makes "most" of the room feel organized quickly. Then I can deal with the pile of stuff more easily.

I find that if I tidy up around me, keep at the dishes, and vacuum the house, I feel better, emotionally, and am better able to function. You can literally 'see your way clear' to other projects and tend to feel less overwhelmed.
