Overwhelm is something we can feel in small moments or for days; for some, it can trigger an anxiety attack, and for most, overwhelm comes from the daily stream of more to do that adds up to chronic stress and a mind that feels like it’s about to boil over.

Most people I talk to feel overwhelmed, if not all the time, some of the time. We are living in a time where technology is increasing the speed of work, and we have still not gotten to the point where it takes over and helps us work less (maybe not less if we are realistic, but at least helps us work differently)
