In today’s fast-paced world, mental health often takes a backseat, especially for women who often wear many hats. But focusing on combating anxiety and depression allows you to be present in your life and accomplish your goals with much less worry on the way to success. This seminar will provide information on the negative thinking process, the similarities and differences of anxiety and depression, and mindfulness and its impact.
