Expats and emotional overwhelm: when everything just gets too much.

It’s all just TOO MUCH!

Emotional overwhelm that catches us at times regardless of where you are on your expat journey, whether this is your first move, or your 21st .

Emotional overwhelm can hit anyone, at any time, in any place, and wherever you are in your expat journey. It can also be particularly strong at the start of a new school year as you work out new routines, timetables, expectations and challenges.

When you just curl up into a ball and hide for a while but you can’t, because suddenly you have to do the school run again. When you’ve discovered school finishes at midday on Wednesdays, yet it takes you an hour to do the school run, so what’s the point of going back home…

When your kids are having upsets, meltdowns, tantrums at least once a day and you feel like joining them.

When you’re frustrated that your life isn’t the Insta-perfect expat dream you expected, when you’re missing the easiness of home.

Discover what causes emotional overwhelm, how it can affect you, and most importantly, how to manage it to reclaim your brain and happiness.
