“It sounds silly, but every time I have to leave the house, I feel overwhelmed and stressed.”

When there’s a lot going on it’s normal to feel a little stressed. This is because our bodies release hormones when we’re faced with challenging situations, which are designed to help us react, respond and overcome. If the stress continues for too long though, it can lead to feeling overwhelmed, but there are things you can do to help reduce your stress and avoid becoming overwhelmed.
