A life without burnout
At first glance, it may be difficult to imagine that anxiety, burnout or depression can be the starting point for a new direction in your life, but my clients tell me how they because of the therapy slowly but surely get more nuances and perspectives in life.
It is not possible to live a life without occasionally feeling anxious, sad or tired and vulnerable. These are human conditions of existence, but this is not the case for prolonged depression, stress/burnout or anxiety.
Physical activity and therapy are a good match. A good piece of advice is to spend time on physical activity. Running, hiking, fitness and all kinds of sports activities strengthen your general well-being: YOU become fresher, sleep better, become more present, and gain more energy.
When we thrive in life, it is a result of fulfilling our basic needs:
We thrive because we have found a good balance between who we are and what we can do. We do not feel alone and we receive recognition and love in our close relationships. But sometimes the balance in our lives is destroyed. It can be large-scale societal disasters such as the Corona pandemic and the war in Ukraine, or more personal and all-encompassing changes such as illness, divorce, new education, new work, retirement or a high-stake, demanding and prolonged performance requirement for studies or at the workplace.
Often, our unhappiness sneaks up on us before we are aware of it. Maybe we start to sleep worse or just feel more tired and empty. Often we will try to grit our teeth and fight our way out of problems, but at some point the signs of our unhappiness become so dominant that our lives come to a standstill. When this happens, therapy can be the way forward to a new point of view in life.
