For Your Information

Lift Your Mood

Being around negative, unhappy people can bring you down and make you feel equally unhappy. Negative energy is infectious, but so is positive energy. To improve your mood, spend as much time as you can around the happy people in your life.

Work/Life Balance Tip

Make the most of family time. Spend some time alone each day with your spouse and each child. Even if it is only for a few minutes, talk, read, or participate in an activity together. Also, plan special family events and ignore your weekend agenda of household duties once in a while and enjoy family time together.

Do You Know The Symptoms Of Depression?

Many people recognize excessive sadness as a sign of depression but did you know that symptoms of depression often include headaches, back pain, irritable bowel syndrome, chronic fatigue, anxiety, sleep problems, shortness of breath, and many other conditions? If you have persistent symptoms that resist treatment, the underlying problem might be depression. Call your EAP or doctor and ask to be examined for depression.
