How to Handle Overwhelm [201]

Apple podcast


This week, we tackle the topic of overwhelm. What causes it and how can we get past it? This is our second time talking about this subject, but it is fresh for us this week because Louise has just ridden the ‘overwhelm wave.’ We discuss how it feels to simply have too much to do and break down the difference between “real” and “perceived” overwhelm. We also discuss our coping strategies when life gets a little too hectic, including the value of outside perspectives; how you can use a brain dump to clear your head; and the questions to help guide you through times when you have a lot on your plate.

Feeling overwhelmed is probably something we’ve all experienced – we hope this chat helps if you’re in that space… maybe with enough sensitivity we can even learn to pre-empt and reduce these times.
