Most of us know these days that long term pressure at work, or in other parts of our lives, can lead to stress. And we know that stress in turn is bad for us and can take a toll on both our bodies and our minds leading, among other things, to anxiety and depression. But how do you know when to seek help?

If you answer yes to the questions below, you may need to talk to someone. 


  • Do you feel unfulfilled in your day-to-day life - has life lost it's flavour? 
  • Are you unable to enjoy the things that once gave you pleasure?
  • Do you feel that you are stuck in your life at work or at home and can't see a way out?
  • Do you look for ways to avoid situations that make you anxious? 
  • Do you worry that you are about to have a panic attack, or feel as if you are going crazy? 
  • Do you feel sad, depressed or down frequently? 
  • Do you feel tired and lacking energy for a lot of the time? 
  • Do you have trouble sleeping or find you are sleeping too much? 
  • Do you find it difficult to concentrate?
  • Do you find yourself procrastinating and unable to make decisions? 
  • Have you had a change in appetite or weight?
  • Do you sometimes have feelings of worthlessness or guilt? 
  • Do you sometimes feel frightened or panicky for no obvious reason? 
  • Do you feel restless and unable to relax?
  • Do you feel anxious or worried for a lot of the time? 
  • Do you sometimes feel like just giving up?

If you found yourself checking off more than the odd one of these, then it is time to talk to a therapist or your physician or you could contact a life coach like me.  

If you have had recurring thoughts of death or suicide, contact your doctor regardless of how you have answered these questions.

A Lakota Peyote Healing Song by Robbie Robertson

A Lakota Peyote Healing Song by Robbie Robertson YouTube is full of music that claims to be Native American from North America and usually it isn't.

And in my view it does not have the same power.  This is authentic, beautiful and powerful Singer, song writer and guitarist Robbie Robertson was born Jaime Robert Klegerman in 1943, in Toronto, Ontario. He was born to a Jewish father and a Mohawk mother and took his stepfather's last name after his mother remarried.
