Have you ever been so overwhelmed with stuff that you stop being overwhelmed? As if your brain can handle the stress as it gets greater and greater, and then it kind of caps out at a certain point and just alleviates itself?

I'm feeling that way right now, as we all do from time to time, and I'm wondering what it does for me in terms of focus and productivity. It seems wrong that it would be a good thing to be overwhelmed to the point of not being able to manage the stress, but then I wonder if the disappearance of stress = it being handled. Perhaps this is the clarity making its way through all the gunk.

Funny that consumers typically interact with businesses like proper acquaintances. You see the topical marketing strategies and advertisements, and great efforts are made to conceal the lunacy that's going on below the surface.
