  One of the things we don’t do is listen more to the wisemen in our lives.  There are grandparents, and uncles that have accumulated a wealth of knowledge over their lifetimes.  Podcasting is an excellent way to capture that wisdom.  It’s not easy because not everything they say is for everybody. And not everything they say is gold.  But on this weeks episode I have a guest that is golden.  We spoke for awhile and when he got comfortable he dropped some nuggets.     I didn’t know him personally before this episode.  I have heard of him for...

Your Key To Success: Conversation Why is Communication so hard? Asked of a single woman I know. The topic prompted me to share this with you so you can do better. Two Game Changing Points: 1. An open-ended question is a question that cannot be answered with a "yes" or "no" response, or with a static response. 2. Active listening. There are three levels of safe topics to talk about. More tips: * Be attentive and give eye contact. * Make active and engaged expressions. * Repeat back what you’ve heard, and follow up with questions. * If you notice something you want to say, don’t say it....

Not everyone who is depressed experiences every symptom

Beyond Treatment: Things You Can Do

Here are other tips that may help you or a loved one during treatment for depression:

  1. Try to be active and exercise.
  2. Set realistic goals for yourself.
  3. Try to spend time with other people and confide in a trusted friend or relative.
  4. Try not to isolate yourself, and let others help you.
  5. Expect your mood to improve gradually, not immediately.
  6. Postpone important decisions, such as getting married or divorced, or changing jobs until you feel better.
  7. Discuss decisions with others who know you well and have a more objective view of your situation.
  8. Continue to educate yourself about depression.
