Are you overwhelmed? More than 90% of adults in 2020 say yes. The pandemic, the economy, unemployment, the holidays, family – all of it has left most of us feeling stuck, unable to handle one more thing, unsure of our ability to face what is already there. Dr. G, Brian Copeland, and Jeannette Kaplun tackle this tough topic; it’s impact, how to cope overwhelm, and strategies to conquer it. More than just a loss of control and feeling of defeat, Overwhelm can bury many of us emotionally, physically, and psychologically. They are joined by Dr. G’s business partner and friend, Ilana Schwarcz, an entrepreneur and mom, who makes real the everyday stressors so many are facing. Jeannette, Brian, and Debi bring their communities’ – and their own – experiences and points of view to shed light on this topic and offer solutions where you need them the most.
About The Podcast
This episode is number two of a four-part YouTube Series co-hosted by Dr. Deborah Gilboa, Jeannete Kaplun, and Brian Copeland that tackles the mental distress many of us are experiencing right now. Normalization of the struggle each person faces. Empathy for the pain, fear, confusion, anger, sadness, isolation that are present for so many each day. Strategies for moving forward in unprecedented times and circumstances. It aims to be a welcoming, approachable conversation that honors emotion while offering real life solutions to the pain and fears people are experiencing right now in an incredibly vulnerable time known as 2020, that is only going to be amplified during the holidays. The three hosts strive to give people the tools to talk about what’s happening and to reach out – for themselves and for anyone about whom they’re worried. In a lively, yet informative conversation, audiences can learn and laugh a little, and look at some tough realities — from Covid fatigue and political unease to economic woes and feelings of isolation– so everyone knows they’re not alone and their experience matters. They matter.
