YOUR BODY IS DOING ITS BEST.
The good news is: our bodies and minds are hard-wired to regulate stress.
However, this ability doesn’t depend on us alone. When our bodies start signalling distress, it’s time to invest in wellbeing.
ASKING FOR HELP IS A SIGN OF STRENGTH
We often try our best not to show we’re struggling out of fear of seen as “weak” or “needy”. Research on how people manage extremely difficult challenges in their lives has shown that the ability to ask for help makes a major difference in whether we develop mental health problems, or not.
