Overwhelm has become the post-pandemic pandemic. And it’s showing up in all parts of life - personal, professional, social, health and beyond. So many feel like they’re one seemingly small thing away from completely shutting down. That your work, task and emotional load has hit a saturation point, leaving you unsure how to move forward. And terrified of the one more thing that gets piled on and ends up taking you down.  All too often, the response is not to get proactive, and there’s no judgment here, it’s hard to act when you feel like you don’t have the capacity to. So, we end up numbing out, in myriad ways. Which is, by the way, different from run-of-the-mill burnout. Question is, what’s really going on here, and what can we do about it? In today’s episode we’re digging into: How is the feeling of being "blown" or "numb" different from regular stress or burnout?  Why does shame and a sense of "not enoughness" often accompany these feelings of numbness or system overload?  If lowering expectations temporarily could help, how do you navigate when your workplace won't allow that reprieve?   What are practical ways to "turn down the volume" on inputs overwhelming your capacity and ability to cope? How can you add supportive, energizing elements back into your life to increase resilience against this numbness and stress saturation? And we’re in conversation with: SPARKED BRAINTRUST ADVISOR: Yvonne Ator | Website Yvonne is the Founder of Thriving Physicians and Thriving Idealist, where she coaches heart-centered, mission-driven Physicians and other helping professionals who seek to make a positive impact in the world.  YOUR HOST: Jonathan Fields Jonathan is a dad, husband, award-winning author, multi-time founder, executive producer and host of the Good Life Project podcast, and co-host of SPARKED, too!
