Trying To Cope With My Depression
Hi, everyone I hope all is well with you. I have been on and off doing my blogging lately. More off than on. As you all know, I have depression and have been struggling with it for many years. I am trying to find more ways to cope with depression. I have been reading a book called The Depression Cure and it is very good with practical and understandable advice. The first thing they talked about was that they have done studies and said that doing exercise seems to be just as effective as taking the medication called Zoloft. I thought that this was amazing. I am definitely going to start back up with my exercising. I kind of fell of the wagon after my 30 day challenge with the EA Sports Active. I do have to admit that it does make you feel better about yourself when you workout. It is just really hard to make yourself exercise when your in the super depressed mode and thinking that nothing will make a difference. I am going to start focusing on having a positive attitude and being grateful for what I have in my life. I have so much to say. There will be more to come soon. I think that I will leave you with this thought from Dr. Wayne Dyer, who says Change Your Thoughts Change Your Life!
