You’ve been sitting at your desk at work staring at the screen for what feels like hours. That important report is due in thirty minutes, but you can’t seem to get anything done. You try your best to focus, hoping that those three shots of espresso will do the trick, but your mind keeps drifting off. You can’t shake the feeling that you’re not balancing work, school, family, relationships, and self-care, and you’re not just feeling overwhelmed at work or school, you’re feeling overwhelmed in life.
The connections in your life are suffering; you’re not present with your partner, family, and friends. You feel consumed with anxiety and you can’t stop thinking about the anxiety you feel, that awful experience of abuse, or the memory of losing your loved one, even though you so desperately want to forget.
