Before I did EAP, I was already a fairly spiritual person and had a great family and friendship base and a job I enjoyed. However, I still struggled with managing stress, so much so that I began to have gut related issues and would often feel anxious.I used to live concerned about the expectations of others. I cared too much about what I thought they would think. I always felt I had to do everything right, be the best. How did these issues improve working with your Mentor and EAP? EAP has helped me choose to do things for me, as apposed to doing it in search of approval from others. During the course the amount of health issues reduced and since completing the course are few and far in between. By alleviating the stress I was feeling, my entire perspective on work and many other areas in my life has shifted. Moments where I would usually feel overwhelmed, frustrated or anxious, no longer make me feel this way. In return this has also allowed me to spend more of my own time focussing on my other values such as friends and family. What is the overall thing you would want to say to someone considering doing the EAP? My experience was that I really didn't have to do anything. The discussions with my mentor and the journaling type pages of the program almost instantly stuck in my head. I found myself thinking about the discussions and my experience daily, which naturally lead to me being more aware. Be ready to be open and honest. Be willing to learn more about yourself then you could possibly know. This is an opportunity for even the smallest shift to have phenomenal positive effects. This course really has the power to help you change your life, if you let it.
