Feeling tired, flat, unmotivated, overreacting, withdrawing - are all common signs of emotional overwhelm.
When we are feeling overwhelmed, it may be difficult to pinpoint exactly why. Often there are many stressors contributing to emotional overwhelm rather than one particular event.
From the bushfires to the pandemic and our own personal obstacles - it is no wonder as a community we may be struggling with overwhelm.
It is time to find your inner calm.
FINDING CALM WILL HELP YOU...
