When you feel anxious or depressed because things are not going as you planned, it's important to develop insight and identify your default automatic unhealthy thinking patterns which impacts your mood, actions and behavior. Stress recovery and resilience building with the implementation of mindfulness exercises has strong research evidence that helps in improving symptoms of anxiety and depression.

Ambivalence, avoidance and doubt often interferes in maximizing human potential.
