What is overwhelm? When do we feel it, and how can we overcome it?
As humans trying to keep up with the lightning-fast pace of the modern world, many of us often feel overwhelmed. It may be in a certain area of life – like health, work, family, or current events – and commonly, it’s all of the above all at once.
In this episode, we share what overwhelm is and how to take small steps to break through it, including reading your body’s warning signs, calming your nervous system, and using “on-ramps” to move yourself forward.
When you’re feeling overwhelmed, we recommend the following process:
- Stop everything and identify your feelings
- Calm your nervous system
- Write the steps to move forward
- Do the steps, with on-ramps and rewards.
