5 Helpful Tips for Navigating Overwhelming Seasons of Life

I’m just finding my way out of a season which, if I had to name it, would be called Overwhelm.

It was a stressful time, full of “how did I get here?” and “where do I start from?” ‎moments. The worst thing was that it didn’t seem like it would ever end. Sometimes the thought of endless pressure-filled days brought on anxiety and shortness of breath.

Alas, tough times don’t last and that season of my life is giving way to a season of pure energy, high productivity and less stress.‎ What did I learn about reducing stress and freeing up your life?
