Feeling overwhelmed ?

A common theme when I am supporting carers is that they report a sense of feeling overwhelmed. My understanding of being overwhelmed is where emotions are becoming difficult to manage, therefore, lowering our coping mechanisms and affecting our mood.

When we are overwhelmed, we can find we are tired, lonely, stressed, forgetful, suffer from pain such as headaches, have trouble sleeping, feeling anxious or feeling low.

It can be when we are overwhelmed, we have no time to think, so we can ignore and store away emotions and feelings.

By stopping and offering space to talk things through, it can help to ‘lighten the load’. The emotions and feelings can be expressed and released in a confidential and safe space. In doing so it is likely to allow for clearer thinking as energy is not being used to juggle or suppress those feelings. Talking can help to make things feel more manageable.
