I'm feeling overwhelmed

I feel like this is too much to handle - I can't cope with everything happening at once.

In the Moment

Take a deep breath. Hold it for 5 seconds, then breathe out through your mouth. Repeat this as many times as it takes for you to feel calmer and clearer.

 

Remember, most things can wait, so take it one step at a time.

Seek Support From Those Who Make You Feel Safe

At Nalla, we all agree that it’s important to look for support from people who make you feel safe and cared for.

 

The person you talk to doesn’t have to be able to fix you, but they need to be a good listener—someone who’ll listen attentively and compassionately without being distracted or judging you.

 

Reach out to someone close to you, and be honest with them about your feelings. This can be hard to do, but even saying you need help out loud can be half the battle. Take it a step at a time, but just remember that you don’t have to face this challenge alone.
