Break Free from
Anxiety and Depression
How to thrive at work, school and in relationships
(No matter what life throws at you)
Anxiety and depression are very common. They affect our lives. They steal from us. This ebook helps you see what they are, how they manifest, how they affect your life, and what can help restore your life.
Are you sick and tired of...
Feeling life is ‘blah’?
Dreading every day?
Not being interested in life?
Not getting a good night’s sleep?
Feeling you are not good enough?
Feeling you are a bad mom or dad?
Coping with overwhelming anxiety?
Not feeling productive at work or at home?
Feeling tired and drained most of the time?
Having poor concentration at school or at work?
Not seeing value or meaning in yourself or your work?
Feeling you can’t talk to others because you are so anxious your heart is in your mouth?
The Truth is, you’re not alone. These are common symptoms of anxiety and depression. For some individuals, major depression results in severe impairments that interfere with or limit their ability to lead a normal life. This can include managing the requirements of school, work and daily relationships with loved ones, friends, and coworkers. They affect the most productive people in society – YOU. Whether you're a student or a professional, your mental well-being makes a difference to the world.
Physical symptoms caused by anxiety and depression, like fatigue, headaches, or heart palpitations can lead to endless visits to primary care physicians, family physicians, endocrinologists, or cardiologists. You may even end up an emergency room because panic attacks can be like a heart attack. Imagine how many of those visits can be eliminated if anxiety and depression is recognized and treated.
Anxiety and depression can rob your happiness and purpose in life. On bad days, you might even feel like life is not worth living. The good thing is there is a solution. There is hope and that is a promise.
You don’t have to ‘suck it up."
Few people know they don’t have to live with the bondage anxiety and depression creates. It can seem almost natural to not feel your best, that you have to live with some level of daily anxiety and depression. Maybe you expect not to enjoy life and “just go through the motions”. Do you feel you just have to “suck it up” or “it is what it is”? Most people don’t seem to know freedom from anxiety and depression is possible. There is help at hand.
