Body Mind Spirit
Because it is a body-mind-spirit problem, depression can not be addressed just with one thing , a sleeping pill, time off to rest , a favorite desert to pick me up, It is an overall issue that involves all aspects : the way you take care of yourself, your self awareness, your relationships and emotional support system, your wrong idea and expectation, your daily habits of eating, sleeping and thinking, and over all your philosophy about your own self and own life and existence, your purpose in the great picture , your own search for meaning. “
