Overcoming Overwhelm: An Interview with Brigid Schulte

Brigid Schulte's book, Overwhelmed: Work, Love and Play When No One Has the Time, is one of those books that has you yelling out loud 'YES!' and 'THANK YOU!'.

She's taken a concept - women are too busy and stressed - that is often treated as 'fluff' ('mommy probs! LOL!') and treats it with the respect and importance it deserves. Through scientific research and personal experimentation, Brigid breaks down the truth we've all known but never quite expressed so clearly--

Unless we courageously stand up to the internal, relational, and social pressures to be always productive, our lives will get swallowed whole by endless to-do's and never-enough's. 

Brigid took time out her schedule to talk with me about what makes the overwhelm trap so powerful and how can we unhook from it. (And she's choosey with how she spends her time, so I'm super honored!) 

This interview is great for anyone looking for validation, inspiration, and guidance on how to set limits with demands on your time, define your own priorities, and allow yourself to thrive.
