I hear it over and over again, “I didn’t know that was anxiety!” "Wait, that's depression not laziness?"

 

Anxiety is not just those butterflies in your stomach when you have to make a presentation or you’re waiting for a blind date to show up. It can be irritability before going to the party or pervasive procrastination before starting a project.

 

Depression is not just hopelessness about life. It might be pushing away from relationships or disconnecting from things you used to enjoy.

 

 

 

Does any of this sound like you?

  •  Feeling wound-up, tense, or restless
  • Easily becoming fatigued or worn-out
  • Concentration problems
  • Lack of interest in your usual hobbies
  • Irritability
  • Significant tension in muscles (jaw, neck, back)
  • Difficulty with sleep
