Let’s face it: Being an adult is hard. You might be responsible for yourself, as well other people, including children, a spouse, aging parents, and pets. You probably have a home, condo, or apartment to maintain. You have meals to plan, shop for, and cook. You may have one or more full- or part-time jobs so you can pay your bills. And you may have volunteer efforts to coordinate.
It’s not surprising that your life is complicated, and your personal needs often fall to the bottom of your long to-do list.
Sometimes the drill of daily life can lead to unhealthy habits like alcohol abuse. Or the stress of dealing with life can lead to anxiety, depression, family issues, or relationship difficulties.
