Why Therapy is Worthwhile

Mental Health

Investing in Yourself

If you’re like most people, you have a lot going on in your life. You might be juggling work, family, and social obligations. You also may be dealing with stress, anxiety, or depression. And on top of all that, you’re trying to take care of yourself! It can be tough to find the time and money to invest in your well-being. The kids’ sports cost money, the house needs a new furnace, and you promised your in-laws you’d rent a beach house with them next summer. It can feel as though there is nothing left for you to use to invest in yourself. The month of May marks Mental Health Month, which is a good reminder to get a pulse on your own mental health. For most, therapy is worth the investment. Here’s why. 

1. Therapy can help you save money in the long run.

You might be thinking, “How can therapy possibly save me money? I have to pay for it myself!” But hear us out. The decisions we make every day have an impact on our financial well-being—whether we realize it or not. For example, if you’re struggling with anxiety or depression, you might make impulsive decisions that end up costing you money. Or if you’re coping with a major life transition, like a divorce or job loss, you might make decisions out of fear that end up being costly mistakes. Therapy can help you learn how to make decisions from a place of logic and reason rather than emotion, which can save you money in the long run. For example, you won’t say yes to all the activities that overschedule your family and make you stressed. 

2. Your relationships will improve.

The healthier your relationships are, the happier you’ll be—and happy people tend to spend less money! If you’re struggling in your relationships, therapy can help you communicate better, set boundaries, and constructively resolve conflict. Constantly caring for others but not refilling your well leads to resentment.  This boils into anger or passive aggression. Both hurt your family and friends. Learning to prioritize your basic needs, set boundaries, and find balance preserves harmony.  Not only will this make your personal relationships more enjoyable, but it can also improve your professional relationships and even lead to opportunities for career growth.

3. Therapy can help improve your physical health.

We all know that our physical health is important—but it’s easy to let other things take precedence when we’re stressed out or overwhelmed. If you’re dealing with a lot of stress or anxiety, it’s easy to turn to comfort food, wine, or zoning out in front of Netflix.  It is important to find healthier ways to manage.   Therapy can teach you healthy coping mechanisms and stress-reduction strategies that will help keep your mind and body healthy.

Therapy can be a great investment that can pave the way to a happier, healthier life.  Still not sure if therapy is right for you? Reach out to us about whether therapy might be a good solution for what’s going on in your life.
