Coach – Tip Sheet Week #8: Feeling low
Are you feeling low? We have all been there!
There are days when everything seems challenging to face and achieve. You are going to face a lot of hardships in your life.
Everyone feels low or down from time to time and that is quite normal. We've all experienced situations in which we have felt upset, angry, worried or sad.
Feeling low is particularly common after a distressing event or major life change like the death of someone close, unemployment or a relationship breakdown.
Sometimes it is possible to feel down without there being an obvious reason.
