If you have ever suffered from depression yourself or know anyone who has you will know just what a debilitating illness it is. For many people it can last a lifetime and they never really recover.
It doesn’t have to be that way though. There is a way out of depression and I can show you how.
In this video (which is an extract from our Mindfulness course – Beating anxiety, stress and depression), I discuss with you what is depression. We take a look from a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy perspective how depression is created and the chemical changes that take place in the body when we are depressed. It is through building an awareness of our problems that we are able to discover the resources to solve them.
Recovery from depression is a process. It will not happen overnight. It involves a reversal of the chemical process that created the depression in the first place and this is something that you do have influence over. The great news is that the trigger that starts the recovery can be something really simple, a simple action like brushing your hair or going to the shops and you can take that action today.
Sustained recovery from depression will take place when you take repeated positive actions like watching one of our videos on the mindfulness course each day to help motivate you and develop mindfulness into your life.
You can have your life the way that you want it – you just need to take the necessary steps.
I do hope that you enjoy the video. Let me know your thoughts by leaving a comment below.
