Work/Life Balance and Feeling Overwhelmed
The world is constantly changing; our workplaces, homes, and relationships can all create stress and feelings of overwhelm. Finding balance can be hard. With the increase of technology through email, remote access and cell phones people need to be ‘on’ for longer, and employers often expect people to work beyond the normal “9 to 5” to combat downsizing, outsourcing, and layoffs. This can result in an increase in workplace stress, burnout, and a marked decrease in feeling you have a balanced life. Without the down time needed to recuperate between work and home, people are having a hard time turning off and managing stress. From this can come anxiety, physical symptoms, sleeplessness, panic, and depression.
Psychotherapy can help with work-life balance and stress management. It can help to have somewhere safe to discuss your stressors, identify your triggers, and develop good healthy boundaries to create balance. Practical self-care techniques that can be used in everyday life can be taught in session to help you thrive and survive.
