Cultivating a sense of hope, brightness and even cheer in the depths and dark of a difficult time is a real challenge. Overcoming a period of constant “blah”, “numb” or truly sad can mean more than just overcoming a single obstacle, it could mean reforming your life, your habits, your diet, your thoughts…and your environment! Depression is a serious issue with multiple causes, many somewhat controvesial “cures” and heated debates. One thing is clear- you can not simply pop a pill and erase your unhappiness. Serious depression is integrated within your life and lifestyle; you must make changes, even small ones, in your habits, your diet, your relationships, thoughts and environment to truly emerge filled with hope, peace, clarity & joy.
Here is a video packed with many ideas to support your march toward more & more light in your life!!!
Do you have a holistic help for depression that has helped you snap out of the blues? Have you had success treating serious depression with nutrition or alternative healing? Please share! This is a discussion I’d love to get started in the world! xoxo Dana
Omega 3’s have been amazing! I took them for a long time and didn’t feel like I was getting as much of a benefit as I had hoped. After talking to a nutritionist at a local business, I discovered that because I have a sluggish digestive system, I might not be absorbing everything I could. I switched to the liquid form of the oil and noticed a big difference after 4 wks. My dry eye was under control, my hair, skin, and nails improved and I just felt better!
YOGA has been a true lifesaver as well – gentle/restorative/yin yoga for me. Has made all the difference in lowering my anxiety and depressive moods.
This is AWESOME! Thank you Sheila! xoxo Dana
Thanks for these tips Dana! I’m definitely feeling in a funk with a lot of different changes going on my life. I’m trying to get a sense of balance and maintain a healthy lifestyle. It’s so refreshing to take a “holistic” look on things!
love hearing this! xx dana
Hi Dana!! Love the video! I find that lots of sunshine, flowers + light makes the energy in an area much much happier! 🙂 Finding a friend to talk about things can be really helpful in some situations too! And I totally agree with what you say about seeking professional help (not an advocate for treating symptoms i.e. using antidepressants for depression) but I am all for natural herbs + medicine as a supportive role. Sending you lots of love! 🙂 x
