The Truth about Therapy: It’s not that bad. It’s all about setting goals and changing your mindset.

I have anxiety and depression but I am not taking medication or getting therapy. There is  a stigma and the news, who portray people with mental illnesses as always having guns. Yet, I figured out that there was nothing to be worried about or be intimidated about.  I’ve found a different type of therapy for stress and depression. Although some therapies are expensive, there are some inexpensive methods. For instance I found a yoga therapy course  that is only $20-$30.  While doing research I’ve also found that most therapies focus around setting goals and changing your mind set. For example Beck’s cognitive therapy.
