The Invisible Load: A guide to overcoming stress and overwhelm

review by Liz Marchant

It feels like everyone today is talking about stress, being under pressure, feeling overwhelmed, or busy! Why do our stress levels seem higher now than ever before?

Dr Libby is always full of wisdom and this book does not disappoint. Beautifully put together, easy to read and digest, it gives us practical, science-based solutions to manage our invisible load.

This book helps to unpack stress and helps us understand our invisible load and what is really at the heart of the issue.

Quote from the book:

“We think that we’re stressed and overwhelmed by all the things we have to do in a day, and I’m not denying that for many of us our lives and responsibilities are often overflowing. But these aren’t the cause of our stress. Your obligations and responsibilities are not your stress; it’s your thoughts about those things in relation to yourself that cause it.”
