How to Cope When Feeling Stuck & Overwhelmed

When we feel overwhelmed it is frequently because we are taking in everything all at once i.e. the problem; the cause; the players; the details of what has happened; the impact it has had or will have; and oh yes “What will people say…?” As most of us have experienced, there are just some things that are too huge to wrap our arms around at one go. Therefore we have to learn how to step back, calm down, and take another and more measured look at the problem. This is absolutely essential  if we  are to get past it and restore normalcy to our lives. In this video I share a strategy of how to use questions to break the spiral of overwhelm and regain perspective on how to take next steps to get resolution. Specifically I focus on the questions of “How vs Why?”

Hope you find this helpful!
