Virtual Counseling for Stress Management in Barkhamsted, CT
How do you know when you need stress management counseling?
We all experience stress, and some stress is actually healthy for your mind and body. Physical exercise, for example, can be good for you, making you stronger, healthier, more efficient and productive. When the demands overwhelm your resources, however, stress can negatively impact your life and your health. You may feel exhausted from trying to manage your responsibilities and find yourself overburdened with all of your obligations.
This isn’t what you wanted for yourself.
You’re wondering when–or if–it’s ever going to be your turn to be joyful, to feel fulfilled, to stop running yourself into the ground doing what you think you “should” be doing, or to get out of survival mode. It seems like every morning, your alarm sounds, your feet hit the floor and you ask yourself how you got here, if this is the life you want, and what to do about the indifference, uncertainty, strain, overwhelm or uneasiness that is seeping into every facet of your existence.
You notice yourself getting angry, withdrawing, and blaming your circumstances. You’re becoming critical of yourself and others and find yourself trying to escape or avoid the distress without actually addressing what’s causing it. Worst of all, you feel like you’re running out of time to figure out how to manage your overwhelm, have fulfilling relationships and live a life in Barkhamsted that actually feels good to you. The pressure you feel to solve all of this is making matters worse, and exhausting you further.
