“Do you have these symptoms of depression? problems sleeping, loss of weight or gain of weight, disinterest in your body hygiene and care, disinterested in hobbies or pleasures you were interested in before, problems in concentration and accountability, difficulty to do work or daily tasks, frequent mood swings , increased feeling of isolation and loneliness, difficulty in communications, indulgence in bad habits you have let go of before like cigarettes smoking, drinking, feeling worthlessness and even having suicidal thoughts?

Ask yourself:

How long ago did these symptoms occurred in your life?

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. “
