So here we are in September...

Are the kids going back to school? Should they go back to school? When is life going to return to normal? Is life going to return to normal? Am I putting my kids at risk? Will they be safe? Am I a bad parent for sending them back? What will others think of me? How are we going to pay for all this? What if Jim loses his job because his work shuts down?

Have you had enough yet?

Sometimes life can get overwhelming. We all know that it's a natural part of life that we all experience.

Life has its seasons, and you will be much more likely to be overwhelmed during certain times of your life compared to others.

But how do you deal with it?

One of the issues with overwhelm is that it takes your mind away from you and your values and places them on consistent fires that need to be put out.

The more time you spend putting out fires, the less time you have for doing things that prevent those fires and now you have more fires.

The problem goes on and on, and it's a cycle.

In this episode, we talk about how we deal with overwhelm.
