Let it Be Episode 53 – Overwhelm

Ah, overwhelm. If you read this blog, then you’ve suffered from it. More often than you’d like to admit.

In an ideal world we would head this feeling off before it became a big issue, but so often we find ourselves doing the opposite – avoiding the problem and focusing on busy-work instead. I share a recent experience of this kind of self-sabotage and Brooke shares how gardening becomes her go-to avoidance technique when she’s feeling it.

But instead of giving in to procrastination, how can we avoid or minimise overwhelm in the first place? Brooke and I try to offer some really practical strategies that will stop that spiralling feeling in its tracks, as well as encouraging us all to accept that life sometimes happens that way.
