If you can’t imagine getting through whatever you are going through…...just try imagine getting through the next tiny little bit, the next 5 minutes, hour or day, whatever feels manageable.

Are you running out of gas?  Do you feel like you are losing steam and need to recharge?  Over the past month, we have noticed ourselves and others expressing the feeling of ‘hitting a wall.’  Having a loss of energy and feeling constantly fatigued.  As we are still in the throws of the global pandemic and as we enter the fourth quarter of 2020, we want to talk about why we all seem to feel depleted, tired and have a sense of loss.  We will also discuss what we can do about it.  In our conversation, we cover:

  • The myriad of reasons we are hitting this wall from what is going on for individuals, families and the societal systems we rely upon
  • The definition of surge capacity and how ours are depleted
  • Common emotions we feel when we hit the wall
  • 5 Ways to cope with ‘hitting the wall,’ including: 
    • Situation acceptance
    • Honoring feelings
    • Expecting less from yourself
    • Elevating relationships
    • (Re)building your resilience bank
