"Overcoming Overwhelm: Dismantle Stress from the Inside Out"
From the work day to family time, from must-do's to want to's, we're all packing as much as we can into our daily lives and it's making millions of us sick, tired and frustrated. Why? Because we simply cant solve stress and overwhelm by doing more and more of what we've been doing. Samantha Brody, ND, author of Overcoming Overwhelm, joined us to share an alternative. She says you don't need new ways to manage your stress, instead you need to prevent it from overwhelming you in the first place.Using her proven and practical techniques, she says you can undo overwhelm with four simple steps:Step 1: Find Your True North. Clarify what is truly important to you. Who do you want to be, how do you want to feel and what do you want your day-to-day life to look like?Step 2: Establish Your Foundation. Identify what roadblocks may get in your way of making the changes that will help you live the life of ease you crave. You'll make a plan for assembling a team that can help you reach your goals and you'll fortify your mindset to prepare for success. Step 3: Take Your Overwhelm Inventory. Determine your unique causes of stress (some obvious and many that will surprise you) in your physical surroundings, health, habits, relationships, thinking patterns and more.Step 4: Create and Launch Your Personal Plan. Start making the targeted changes that will help you rid your life of overwhelm and radically improve your well-being on all levels--body mind and spirit!For more information, visit Dr. Brody's website.
