Too much stress, responsibility, or life difficulties can become overwhelming.
Everyone experiences stress.
Yet, sometimes we can carry too much or carry it for too long — especially if you’re in a helping profession, high-pressure work environment, or a parent juggling multiple work/life demands.
For instance, you may feel pressure to take on additional tasks, roles, or responsibilities. Or you may feel like you need to stay strong for others. You may work long hours or have tight deadlines.
Over time, the demands and the emotional and physical strain can build up — becoming too much.
Unfortunately, high levels of stress or ongoing strain can lead to feeling:
- Emotionally or physically exhausted
- Burned out
- Angry or irritable
- Hopeless or helpless
- Depressed or anxious
- Unable to concentrate or focus
- Unhappy or dreading your job
- Disconnected or unmotivated
As a result, you may struggle to create a work-life balance that allows time for self-care or feeling present in your relationships.
You can manage feelings of stress and overwhelm and find balance in your life and relationships.
Feeling burned out and too much stress can sometimes make it hard to know where to start. It can feel like too much.
However, you can overcome your feelings of stress and burnout.
Therapy for burnout and stress can help you:
- Identify sources of stress and overwhelm
- Gain insights into how the stress or burnout is impacting other areas of your life, including relationships, patterns and behaviors, your feelings, and how you view yourself
- Learn tools and strategies to manage your emotions, stress, and overwhelm
- Identify ways to prevent overwhelm or feelings of burnout in the future
- Improve your feelings of self-confidence
- Find a work/life balance, including self-care
You can regain your focus and feel more present and balanced in your life and relationships.
