Last week I met with a client who is managing a major project and working long days and weekends to meet deadlines. She is also suffering from a crisis in her self-confidence. In her case, the link between physical stress and mental well-being struck with a vengeance.
When you are feeling emotionally distressed or tired it is important to be aware that what you are thinking may not be helpful or realistic. It’s good practice under stressful circumstances to recognize that when you are feeling down, anxious or guilty to let some of these thoughts pass you by rather than treat them as facts.
