Overwhelm-What is it and How does it impact me? 

#Overcoming Overwhelm

What is Overwhelm? 

Feeling overwhelmed refers to experiencing an intense emotional response due to an accumulation of stress, responsibilities, or challenges that exceed one’s ability to cope.


This state is characterized by a sense of being overloaded, unable to manage tasks effectively, and struggling with feelings of anxiety, frustration, and fatigue. It often impacts one's mental, emotional, and physical well-being, making it difficult to function normally in daily life. 

Stress vs Overwhelm

Stress is caused when the demands on you outweigh the resources   you feel you have to cope.


Overwhelm happens when high amounts of stress make us feel like we can't cope with our lives' demands.
