Should I Go to Counseling?
How working with a professional therapist could benefit your well-being
We all know the benefits physical exercise has on our health. Our energy is increased, our risk of disease is lessened, and we can even prolong our lives. Society’s positive portrayal of those who are physically fit and in good health has made it acceptable to openly work on and improve our physical fitness. But what about mental fitness? We know that being in good mental shape and possessing qualities like resilience, self confidence, open mindedness, and adaptability are positive traits, yet our society is just now starting to accept that the workouts employed to get there are not something to be ashamed of. If you have ever asked yourself, “should I go to counseling?” the answer is likely yes - there is no good reason to let fear of stigma keep you from working on your mental health just like you would your physical.
