Cast your mind back to the last time you felt stressed and overwhelmed (you didn’t have to go back very far, did you?). Now, try to remember whether during this time, you found yourself saying ‘yes’ to yet another thing you really didn’t need to add to your plate.

Think about it. Even though you felt like you were pedalling a gearless bike uphill against a gale force wind, did you – and be honest – add another task or commitment to your life?

If your answer is yes, you’re not alone.

Why do we do this to ourselves – add more stress and reasons to become overwhelmed when we’re already feeling stressed and overwhelmed? Why aren’t we more discerning about what we add to our list?

Whether you’re worried you’ll let others down by saying ‘no’, or think that adding one more thing won’t make much difference to your already overflowing load, step back and consider something. Is there a part of you that wants to hold onto these feelings of stress and overwhelm, for whatever reason? Or, is it something else entirely?

In this brand-new event, Overcoming Overwhelm, Dr Libby will share an entirely new perspective on stress and she’ll teach you how to move from constantly feeling overwhelmed to living a full and thriving life — without it costing you your mental, emotional and physical health in the process.

Dr Libby will bring her mind-blowing workshop to the Gold Coast on Thursday September 12, and you don’t want to miss it.

If you’re ready to learn some new tools and techniques when it comes to spending far less time with the stress response switched on, book your ticket to the Gold Coast event now and secure your spot. Seating is unallocated and the event is suitable for men, women and teens.
