Do you feel overwhelmed lately? I have been feeling like that in the recent months. I also get that general feeling from people around me lately.
I wanted to share this feeling, which I’m referring to as overwhelm in this episode. That feeling when you are not just busy, and overloaded, but that it’s somehow all happening at once.
Lately for me, it’s been quite a regular phase that appears in my life. I seem to be experiencing this feeling when it all happens at the same time, more often. However, I’m somehow not feeling as stressed as I would have expected.
So, even though this feeling of overwhelm is more frequent, somehow I am less negatively impacted by it. I must be doing something right! I had a think about what that was, and I share it with you in this episode.
In this post I talk about why I’ve been feeling overwhelmed recently, why this is important to acknowledge this feeling and the 5 ways I have learned to manage the feeling of overwhelm.
P.S: If you are reading this and are pregnant, or in your postpartum phase, this feeling of overwhelm might be exacerbated by all the recent changes taking place in your life. This may be a moment to change your regular practice, into one that suits your needs at THIS time in your life better.
If you don’t have a regular practice, starting one might be a good idea. Not to add to your list of to-dos, but to find smart ways of easing these feelings.
This is where prenatal and postnatal yoga, as well as other specialities, come in handy. To help us adapt our practice to what we currently need. Find out more about my classes and offerings here.
