Feelings of being overwhelmed are common among individuals of every age. The dread of the day-to-day and fear of not being able to get everything done that you had planned can weigh you down. These feelings can manifest in a variety of ways, including body aches, nausea, restlessness, and lack of sleep. They may leave you feeling guilty at the end of the day — like you are not good enough, not a good mom, not a good partner. They can cause you to snap and put a damper on otherwise happy and exciting life moments — like having a baby, helping your children grow and excel through school, or starting a new job.
You can’t go on like this forever. It is not good for yourself or for the others in your life.
If this sounds like you, then first accept that it is ok to feel this way. Then take a deep breath and consider getting some help.
How counseling can help:
Many of our counselors use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Mindfulness techniques to help teach healthy coping skills, and how to manage anxious thoughts and feelings that arise when feeling overwhelmed. They can also help you organize your priorities and teach you skills to manage all the tasks life throws at you.
Our counselors will help make suggestions on how to care for yourself — how to make time, so you can be the best version of you.
