PS – Here’s one of my favorite quotes on overwhelm, from author Brigid Schulte’s book of the same name:

“Getting out of the overwhelm, [Tara Brach] says, means waking up. Waking up to life. Waking up to the fact that it’s fleeting. That’s why there’s power in finding like-minded communities …. ‘Because when you forget, I’ll remind you that life is going to be over quickly and that this is an amazingly beautiful day.'”
