At times, life can be stressful, and sometimes life events can pile up. Life crises, mid-life issues, family problems, workplace issues, financial or relationship stress can become intense and overwhelming. You may find yourself short-tempered, sleeping too much or too little (insomnia), over-using alcohol, eating too much or too little, or generally feeling overwhelmed. Ongoing nervous tension can lead to health problems such as hypertension and can become chronic. Caregivers are particularly susceptible to long-term chronic stress.
A Samaritan counselor can help you to identify the source(s) of your stress and develop coping skills to manage life in a healthy way. We welcome Employee Assistance Program referrals. Call today!
