Quotes

“There are always things that are going to impact us. And the more we are able to dismantle or take out those things that we identify as being within our control, small things or bigger things, we are able to make more room for the inevitable.” (6:59)

“Any symptom we have, any ill health we have, any imbalance we have, has an aspect of overwhelm to it. Because if the stress is more than our bodies, minds, and spirits can handle, that's how we experience overwhelm.” (13:08)

“Overwhelm often manifests into physical symptoms and when we are able to pick that apart we allow room to get better, we allow room to create health and not just tolerate illness and imbalance.” (26:24)

“The thing you are doing to take care of your overwhelm doesn't always need to be self-care and something that feels good. It's important to do those things also, but really looking at what is going to serve me the best big picture. And sometimes that is just getting sh*t done.” (39:06)
