How to deal with feelings of overwhelm around Coronavirus

Gabrielle Treanor


Today's Episode

This is an unusually long episode because we’re experiencing an unusual time in the world right now. There are a lot of feelings and thoughts about Coronavirus and all the uncertainty and the lack of feeling in control can feel overwhelming.

In this episode we look at:

  • What’s fuelling the overwhelm
  • How we can reduce our feelings of overwhelm
  • Practical steps we can take to still feel connected with others
  • How we can feel more calm and in control
  • How we can allow ourselves to feel joy during this difficult time
