Important news on stress, anxiety, and depression

Good morning!  I'm Kerry J Harrison at the business desk and it's Wednesday, the middle of the week.
How many of you take the time to be nice to yourselves?  How many of you take the time or even a few hours to just sit back and enjoy yourselves?  You may be saying that you can't really afford to do this.  You need to look after the kids, too much work is piling up at the office, and on and on.  I know, it's not easy and we want to help you before you get caught by any of these monsters; stress, anxiety, or depression.
We have assembled a number of important tidbits and headlines for you in order to help you save a lot of time.  Take a few minutes and review these tidbits and if you have something to contribute then please send it to us.
Have a great day!
I'm Kerry J Harrison at the business desk.
