Overcoming Overwhelm


You deserve to feel well

  • Overwhelm is both the cause and result of stress
  • What happens when our body has to do more than it can handle
  • Makes us feel hopeless -> depression -> eat unhealthy and stop taking care of ourselves + numb it with food, alcohol, social media, shopping
  • Stress is very useful when we are in life threatening situations for fight or flight (releases adrenaline and cortisol). But when there's too much stress from too many different sources or it is prolonged so our bodies don't have time to clear the stress hormones and relax and replenish our stresses conjoin to become overwhelm
  • Don't get caught up in the diagnosis if it bothers you: focus on what you need to feel better
