Do you live your life well? Do you take time for yourself, make time to help others, and take care of your body? These things are often easier said than done. From family obligations, to careers, financial worries and beyond, we all face a myriad of stressors and demands everyday. Challenges are often faced trying to balance work and life creating issues which seem so overwhelming given the current events affecting so many people in today’s society-job uncertainty, increased cost of living, changes in families due to divorce, and family members serving in the military being away from their homes. Often the effects of those stressors can build, leading to problems with anxiety and even depression.
May marks Mental Health Month and is the perfect opportunity for you to assess your mental health. If you’re experiencing more stress and pressure than you can handle, it’s time to reach for help! In times of great personal challenge, it’s imperative you take the time to get assistance before your stress level becomes too much to bear.
