Jan 20, 2021
Overwhelm coaching

If you’re feeling overwhelmed, resentful, exhausted, or stretched too thin, it could be a sign that you’re overfunctioning.  

Overfunctioning is when we take on more than our fair share of responsibility inside of the context of the system we’re in. Whether it’s our family system, our work system, or another context. When we overfunction, we take on the burden of responsibility that others could shoulder.  

And we suffer because of it. 

Today, we’re diving deep into where overfunctioning comes from. (HINT: It’s actually a natural, normal, typically helpful mental process gone awry!). We talk about how to recognize it, what the implications of it are, and most importantly, how to begin to make a shift into greater balance and ease.
