Serious q: I’m curious as to how therapy has helped you. I know going in for a particular issue, work related or not, will most likely have a ripple effect into other life areas. Is it worth the $$$?

Ask HR, if you work at a large holding group agency generally you can get 4-8 external therapy sessions on the company.


Therapy has helped me approach client and colleague situations with a 'we're all human' approach. It has also helped me navigate disfunctional toxic people and company politics with wisdom. It's helped me gain visibility as a leader due to a pragmatic and non-reactive approach. Well worth the money if your therapist is supportive!


Yes! Worth the money. And I was a skeptic at first. Been going 4 years now.


I have no idea how it helped, but my life and outlook improved after I went so I’ll make that correlation that it worked.

I've been going through a rough time personally and have severe depression. But given we're still early in the year, and I think also the keener in me, I'm somehow hesitant to take time off to give myself a mental health break because what would 1-2 days off really do?

Im getting into swimming and I’m like OCD about my watch tracking my workout as accurate as possible (even if it’s not the most accurate 🤷🏻‍♀️). I used the open swim for the first time yesterday and one down is 25 yds but one full lap is 50 yds and regardless I don’t think it tracked my swim accurately. Is there a trick? Lol I input 25 yds as a lap but maybe I needed to put 50? Silly little thing but it’ll drive me crazy haha
