Do you work over 50 hours a week? Do you feel a need to constantly stay busy? Do you have difficulty relaxing and having fun? Are you a perfectionist? Are you unable to delegate work to others? Are you so preoccupied with “to-do” lists that you have trouble being emotionally available to others? Does your partner, spouse or children complain about how much you work?
Times are tough. The recession may be over on Wall Street, but no one has told Main Street. Budgets are still being trimmed, layoffs continue, and jobs are hard to come by. Many of us have been forced to downsize and are still struggling to meet our monthly expenses. All of this anxiety and stress can take its toll on our emotional well-being and physical health.
