I am experiencing stress or feel anxious/depressed.

Resources for Anxiety/Depression

What is anxiety anyways? = “I should be doing something different than what I’m doing; I have so much work waiting for me; I should always be working; something’s always about to go wrong” + big spikes when an event is about to happen or is happening. Sound familiar? Everyone feels anxiety at some point, it’s a normal human emotion. It’s only a problem if it stops us from being able to do things that are important to us, like studying, seeing friends, working, taking care of ourselves through daily tasks such as eating, running errands, sleeping, showering, etc.
