Embracing Life Instead of Enduring Overwhelm

Overwhelm is Optional

15-08-2023 • 21 mins

Do you believe that overwhelm is a necessary part of achieving your dreams? Let me assure you, it's not. Join me as I read from and expand on, page one of my book: Overwhelm is Optional. Explore the maze of overwhelm, its effects on our lives, and the misconceptions we often harbour about it. I'll share how I've discovered at 55 that life isn't about pushing through exhaustion. Instead, it's about embracing self-care, discovering our values, and realising we are perfect as we are.
