Combat the Cycle of Depression

Combat the Cycle of Depression

Combat the cycle of depression! In my previous two newsletters I have discussed the cycle of depression (black and white all-or-nothing thinking styles, “over-thinking”) and it’s effects (exhaustion, de-motivation, isolation, increased stress levels, feelings of hopelessness, and thus experiencing fewer pleasant experiences). Due to de-motivation the depressed person will often isolate him/herself and these results in basic human needs not being met. Depression is maintained by introspection and inactivity!
I have previously discussed how meditation can give the brain a break, helps the body to recuperate, lowers anxiety levels, improves sleep and helps a person think more clearly. Committing to daily meditation is the first step in taking action to combat this cycle of depression.
