“Research has shown that gratitude protects us from depression and anxiety,” explains Anita Marchesani, Ph.D.?Executive Coach & Licensed Psychologist. “In the face of adversity, people who express more gratitude are better able?to cope with the stress of major life events. Just as importantly, gratitude ?is closely associated with overall life happiness. And happier people live ?longer, have more satisfying lives, and even perform better in their careers? than less happy people. It can all begin with the practice of gratitude.”
Establish great boundaries around your time so that you protect time with your children, time with your husband, and time to grow your business. Great boundaries around your time helps to prevent the tendency to worry about your biz when you are with your kids, or worry about your kids when you should be concentrating on your biz. – Anita Marchesani, Ph.D., Dr Anita
“Stress is also a major problem. “They usually face tremendous stress in the workplace–they may be required to work long hours, deal with very difficult people who make it harder to do their own jobs, and in economically tight times, they usually have to do more than required,” says licensed psychologist who works as an executive coach Dr. Anita Marchesani.
And stress can have long-ranging effects. “Prolonged, unmanaged/ignored stress leads to depression. This is the most common mental health problem in professionals and business owners,” says Dr. Marchesani.
Anxiety is also a problem. “Panic attacks can happen, but people feel ashamed about this, so they are reluctant to admit it,” explains Dr. Marchesani. “Because professionals are so dedicated to their field, they often dismiss or ignore the build-up of symptoms.””
