Depression and Stress

If you just can't be bothered to do some things that you used to enjoy, chances are that you are depressed. Not very depressed  perhaps, just a bit depressed but enough to stop you enjoying life. Depression covers a wide spectrum of mood and associated behaviour.

It can range greatly from just not being bothered to watch your favourite TV show to not being bothered to get out of bed for three days, not even to go to the toilet or eat or brush your teeth. In the second case, the depression is so severe that the person is no longer concerned in looking after themselves.

These days it is much less embarrassing for people to say I'm depressed, I can't cope, I need help.

One in four people in the UK will experience depression.

Depression and stress seem to go hand in hand for a lot of people as does having a change of sleep pattern.

There are two types of depression:

Clinical - which means that for some reason you aren't making enough "serotonin" - it's a chemical imbalance and you don't have any control of it - absolutely nothing to be embarrassed about and talking about it does help.

The second type is reactive - which simply means that you are reacting to an event like a bereavement or loss of job, relationship or maybe you've been anxious for a while and depression has crept over you. It's a bit like someone has put a big bucket over your head and you can't see out of it but everyone can see that something isn't right! The therapist's job is to help you to remove the bucket safely and help you keep it off for good. Often, by discussing life events it's possible to find out how the bucket got there and realise it doesn't have to go back on again!

Depression is a natural state to be in at some point in our lives. About one in four people will suffer a depressive episode at some point. It is no great respecter of status, wealth, age or gender. It is possible to soldier on and do your daily activities like that very depressed gentleman  - Winston Churchill - British Prime Minister. Many famous people suffer depressive episodes - you don't have to be famous or depressed.

Finding new solutions to problems, learning self-hypnosis to increase your serotonin level naturally, and generally feeling supported throughout the whole process can make a huge difference to how you deal with it. So whether you are running a country, a business or a family unit or just yourself get some practical and effective support.

The Being Calm CD  ( or MP3 download ) is a useful resource to listen to everyday and has worked for many people.
