* Depression is a blanket word used to label or diagnose what is actually a wide range of symptoms and experiences. Depression can range from a more temporary and mild ﬂatness of mood, which we all experience at some time, and which may be linked to a particular situation, disappointment, or hormonal imbalance. At the other end of the scale we see clinical depression in which the body/mind appear to be in a state of collapse and withdrawal from ‘normal’ life and the ability to carry out daily functions. There are many causes of depression, as well as several types of depression; and many possible treatments available too.
Just by working through this online workshop module and learning something new you will help yourself to change your experience of depression – because your brain is processing the information it is receiving, and relating it to yourself, which takes the hard work and focus away from the emotional part of your brain.
As we learn more about our emotions and moods, and the vital things we can do to improve them, we have a diﬀerent energy, perspective, and self-concept. We can even learn how to change the inner dialogue that would otherwise hold us down in the pit of doom and despair which may have become our default position.
If you were to buy this workshop module you can expect to learn about the many causes and expressions of depression, and to explore the role that depression plays in your life – as well as ﬁnding out about the natural ways in which you can ease your symptoms of depression and ﬁnd the path to a more energised and balanced emotional life.
“Numerous surveys have conclusively found that higher levels of education have a positive correlation with better health and a longer life, and even protect an individual from depression.” from The Art of Happiness by HH Dalai Lama and Howard Cutler.
