We Can Help You To Manage
Stress can impact our lives negatively. It can cause physical conditions, such as headaches, digestive issues, and sleep disturbances. It can also cause psychological and emotional strains, including confusion, anxiety, and depression.
Good stress, called eustress, can be beneficial to you. Good stress can help with motivation, focus, energy, and performance, unlike bad stress or distress. For some people, it can also feel exciting.
Depression (major depressive disorder) is a common and serious medical illness that negatively affects how you feel, think, and act. Fortunately, it is also treatable. Depression causes feelings of sadness and a loss of interest in activities once enjoyed. It can lead to various emotional and physical problems and decrease a person’s ability to function at work and home.
Anxiety is an emotion characterized by tension, worried thoughts, and physical changes like increased blood pressure. People with anxiety disorders usually have recurring intrusive thoughts or concerns. They may avoid certain situations out of worry.
