Investing in Yourself
Everyone these days is concerned about their investments. Will I have enough money to retire comfortably? While these concerns are valid, and thinking of our future well-being certainly makes sense, have you ever thought about investing in yourself? There are of course many ways to invest in yourself in the present, like eating healthy and taking time to exercise and maybe even joining a gym.
However, another way to think about investing in yourself is asking yourself how satisfied are you in how your life is going? Are you satisfied and fulfilled in your committed or romantic relationship? Investing in a future where you are happy, have fulfilling social connections, and are living life as your best self is indeed a wise choice.
Therapy is an investment in yourself and your future. It can help you understand yourself and your relationships better. Therapy can change your world view when you are in despair or feeling confused or lost in your personal life. Investing in couples therapy can transform your relationship from one of conflict and disillusionment to a more joyful and fulfilling one.
Research shows that people with more satisfying and healthy relationships have better physical health. Stress, depression and anxiety have been shown to be associated with back pain, migraines, obesity, heart health, and even brain health contributing to illnesses such as dementia.
Make a choice to invest in yourself today. You deserve to be happy!
