Overwhelmed and Over It – Christine Arylo

Women stretched beyond capacity. Women struggling to get it all done. Women sacrificing themselves to take care of everything and everyone else. Not just for a moment or a season, but as an ongoing cycle from which they can’t break free.
In Overwhelmed and Over It: Embrace Your Power to Stay Centered and Sustained in a Chaotic World (New World Library, October 6, 2020), bestselling author and women’s leadership advisor Christine Arylo offers women who have come to accept the frenzied, fast pace with which they live and work to stand up and say: “This way of working isn’t working. And it has to change now!”
Overwhelmed and Over It empowers women to awaken their fierce feminine heart so they can make profound shifts in the systems in which they work, lead, and live. Arylo identifies twelve specific imprints that are the root causes of burnout, self-sacrifice and overwhelm in five different areas — success, life force, heart, time, and power — in order to illuminate the ways of working that are no longer working. Then she offers women the practical wisdom they need to update those imprints that allows them to embrace a more supported way of working, relating, and creating.
Self-awareness inquiries throughout the book help readers reveal deeper truths about themselves and the realities around them. Arylo guides women beyond the shoulds of self-care and work-life balance and encourages them to use their inner wisdom to replace old choices that drain them with new ones that create the sustainable realities they desire.
