Ep #129: How to Stop Overthinking and Tackle Overwhelm

The Joyful Practice for Women Lawyers with Paula Price | How to Stop Overthinking and Tackle Overwhelm

Where in your life and practice are you having thought loops that don’t seem to land anywhere concrete? What is it that’s currently bringing up an overpowering feeling of overwhelm? And how are both overthinking and overwhelm keeping you stuck?


If the habit of overthinking and the feeling of overwhelm seem like common challenge for you, you are not alone. The truth is, they often go hand-in-hand, and we’ve all had our fair share of this experience. Whether in or out of your practice, this pairing can often feel like a huge wall between us and what we ultimately want. This week, I’m sharing my favorite strategies to help you stop overthinking and tackle overwhelm. 


Join me on this episode to discover four simple steps that will help you get ahead of overthinking and overwhelm. You’ll hear how to recognize when you enter the zone of overthinking and overwhelm, a process for interrupting the habit of overthinking and transitioning into taking action, and why doing so will likely bring up a great deal of discomfort but also be incredibly rewarding in the long run.
