A certain amount of stress is normal. The amount you can tolerate fluctuates but it is cumulative, so stacking up stress will break you down over time.
Enter the modern life where we glorify being busy.
It is not unusual to find ourselves burning the candle at both ends for too long until one day this stops working for us.
All of a sudden we realize that we can’t keep going on like we used to. We’ve painted ourselves into a corner and it’s hard to breathe.
Downplaying our stress can cause significant emotional and physical health problems that build up over time. They can look like anxiety and depression.
The good news is, you don’t have to deal with this alone. Counseling can help you learn how to manage your stress and put more harmony in your life.
