At some point in our lives, we all experience feelings of distress, sadness, and like we’ve hit rock bottom. Although these are typical emotions and thoughts, every once in a while a problem arises when these feelings are unexplained, which can be even more upsetting. Not knowing why you’re down can cause more anxiety, and the cycle continues. If you find yourself feeling like this, we’re here to give you some insight into one possible cause: an unhealthy personal life. Read below for some tell-tale signs that your personal life needs help.

Do you find you and your partner seem to be butting heads more often than not? While talking about problems in your relationship can be hard, it is necessary to be on the same page and to communicate clearly your wants and needs.
Being a homebody is a nice quality to have, but if you find yourself rarely leaving the house, that is a bigger issue. Do you tend to cancel plans with friends, or not even make plans? Get outside, explore new places, and be spontaneous!
