While stress is nothing new, it is on the rise. More and more people are suffering from stress these days, and some are even addicted to stress. This happens perhaps because when our bodies deal with stress, they produce hormones such as adrenaline, cortisol, and dopamine. It actually produces a type of “high” and just like any drug can become addicting. Symptoms of being addicted to stress can include high blood pressure, fatigue, insomnia, and loss of appetite just to name a few.
There are ways to combat stress such as exercising regularly, staying focused on one task at a time, taking a break and getting in some “me time,” and setting and sticking to certain limits. Sometimes it is necessary to get some outside help.
Talkspace is basically a way to have a therapist at your fingertips. With Talkspace, you can text, call, and connect to a licensed therapist anytime you need to. You don’t have to try to make time in your busy schedule to meet with someone, and it is easy to switch therapists. All of your information will be transferred as well, so you save time that way as well.
Many people simply do not seek out the help that they need because it is expensive or they just don’t have the time in their busy schedules. Talkspace is affordable and convenient. It is also a great way to receive therapy without having to actually talk face to face with someone which can be an uncomfortable situation for a lot of people.
Talkspace is very flexible, and you can even freeze your account if needed and create a passcode to keep your information safe. It is also easy to connect to a therapist on your computer if you prefer that method over texting on your phone.
