Excellent diagram from @drjarodhalldpt explaining the different factors at play with "load management". When you look at it big picture, all of life is load management.

“Load” on the system isn’t only physical
There are social and psychological loads as well!
When working with a person, we have to first recognize that the loads in their life are unique to them.
We then should try to identify the loads that are both modifiable and non modifiable.
Adjusting how we can to modifiable loads and learning to accept or minimize rumination on and stress about non modifiable loads are effective avenues toward progress.
Focus on non modifiable loads is a pathway to learned helplessness and reduced internal locus of control
