Feeling Overwhelmed?

Posted by Carol Drang at

It seems that everyone I've spoken to in the past, oh, 48 hours has mentioned the same theme: feeling "overwhelmed."  My friends, sisters, mom, and yes, even my boss, has used words like "drowning," "stressed to the max," and "I just can't do this anymore!"  Start of a new school year, for many of us, holidays approaching, changing season... there's always something (no, make that waaay to many somethings) going on.  Why is it that, in today's world, where we have so many comforts and the luxuries of modern technology, women everywhere (and men, too!) are feeling this incredible time press?  And what can we do about it?  Well, actually, my mom recently sent me a book titled, Overwhelmed: Work, Love, and Play When No One Has the Time.  The book gives some tips how to survive in today's busy busy world but, to be honest, I have been too... overwhelmed to get past the first couple of chapters!! But let me tell you, receiving a gift from my mother in the mail gave me a real lift to my day.  Imagine that!  You have the power to change someone else's day by sending them a thoughtful little gift to let them know they're special to you.

Here are some of my current faves to help those gals in your life relax, refocus, and refresh:

     Table Topics                               Apothecary Guild Pocelain Diffuser


A picture frame so you can keep your loved ones close, a "girl's night out" game for a night of laughter and fun, and a room diffuser to help keep your house smelling pretty!

Tell me, what do you like to do for a friend who's going through a rough time? 

(And for more about the aforementioned book, you can order it on Amazon, and let me know what you thought of it!)

Prompt delivery of these lovely salad servers, but they arrived scratched up. Have submitted photos and a request to return them but have had no response yet. Can’t give as a wedding gift when the finish on handles is already scratched. Disappointed.
