Why are we S.A.D.? (Stressed, Anxious, and Depressed) What can we change? The struggle is real. Life can be very challenging! We balance many roles and responsibilities in our lives and, many times, we are a great care provider for EVERYONE else but ourselves! How we take care of ourselves and how we THINK about our life and circumstances has a strong impact on stress, anxiety and depression.
