There is something called a healthy feeling of anxiety, for example, when you are nervous for a speaking engagement, job interview, or birthday celebration; however, anxiety becomes unhealthy when you begin to worry and stress on a daily or weekly basis.


You've crossed into unhealthy stress boundaries when the worry and stress affects your family, work ethic, and body. The stress may leave you feeling uncomfortable, frustrated, and with a sense of uncertainty.

Some symptoms of unhealthy stress and anxiety are: 

  • Restlessness

  • Irritability

  • Sweating or Fatigue

  • Excessive worry

  • Insomnia

  • Nausea

  • Palpitations

  • Difficulty concentrating

  • Tense Muscles

  • Self-Isolation (avoiding social situations)

  • Panic attacks 

Common factors contributing to stress and anxiety amongst women are:

  • Life transitions (Career Change, Moving, Having a Baby)

  • Lack of confidence

  • Comparing yourself to others

  • Feeling of uncertainty

  • Lack of support

  • Loneliness

  • Unrealistic expectations for yourself (ex: feeling you should be married or in a career by a certain age)

  • Lack of resources

  • Loss or Grief (Death/Miscarriage/ Abortions/ Stillborns)

Are you experiencing any of these regularly? Could you use an expert opinion on what you’re going through, or a non-judgemental ear to listen and clear direction?


Could you benefit from individualized attention to help identify which direction you need to take?
