Who You Are
People that know you would say that you are a top performer, maybe married to your work, a go-getter, and one that not only talks the talk but walks the walk.
You have worked hard to get yourself to where you are with dedication, focus and sacrifice. Perhaps have given up a great deal to be where you are today and have juggled and overcome multiple challenges coming from left field that have landed right in front of you.
When people see you, what they know about you is your great life that they secretly envy, you have it all, education, career, financial stability, hobbies that you commit to, and a solid support system…
What they don’t know… is that you are not just tired, you are exhausted, you haven’t a clue about work-life balance, if you had it your way, you would curl up in a ball and not get out of bed wishing that you are not letting others around you down.
Transformation and growth - if you can let go of the past and embrace the present, you can successfully embark on the future you desire, deserve and can attain.

Manage anxiety and regain control
It is imperative to be able to understand the difference between worry and anxiety. Worriers can be both unproductive and productive, it is helpful to differentiate between current and future problems, and important to learn how worry can be dealt with before it transforms into an anxiety state.

Feeling stressed or depressed?

Situational Stress though temporary and varied in presentation, it comes with both physical and emotional symptoms, which can be managed appropriately. Clinical Depression is a medical illness that negatively impacts how you think, feel, act, with overall decreased functioning ability.
