Anxiety: Anxiety and depression tend to recur. It is best to connect with your primary doctor to discuss treatment options. These can include counseling, group therapy, mindfulness techniques or medications.

What to do.: Let your medical provider know. Instead of just taking an anti-depressant, consider adding in a non-pharmacological approach as well (such as psychotherapy, relaxation techniques, acupuncture, etc.)
