My therapist is the bomb (that’s still cool to say, right?). I started going to her a couple of years ago when my consistent health anxiety was peaking, and I knew I needed some help in managing it. She gave me tools to deal with anxiety, but she also helped me realize how stressed out I was, like, all the time. I just thought that everyone else was as stressed as I was, and I didn’t realize how much stress was affecting my life.
Flash forward to two years later: a pandemic has shut down the world, headlines get scarier every day, and a Netflix show about tiger zookeepers is the most normal part of our lives. Whether you’re currently feeling overwhelmed with stress (emotional burnout is real!), or you’ve dealt with anxiety and depression in the past, 2020 is undoubtedly a stressful year.
