When you’re out of sorts

Sadness, anxiety or depression may be triggered by a specific event; or sometimes you might just wake up feeling anxious, sad or depressed. Even if you can’t think why, there will be a reason.

With the right help, by identifying the unwelcome emotion (see below: negative emotions) and investigating the reasons for it you will be far closer to achieving a desired emotional state (see below: positive emotions).
