Vitamin or Aspirin

Monday is counselling day and I usually get exhausted by the end of the session. I was reading the The Heath Brothers Column in Fast company, the other day and some of the analogies they used for successful books and products applies to counselling as well.

Counselling, esp Psycho-dynamic therapy is like a Vitamin. Vitamins are not necessarily needed and they might not necessarily cure the problems, but they might help the body in a way that the problems either might not happen or might be easier to deal with.

The meds for anxiety are more like aspirin. Aspirin can cure the immediate pain, but cannot solve the source of the problem. Also it might not work for pain all the time..

Gotta do what you can do.. And Eat better and exercise!!. Wheres my protein shake!
