Much of clinical depression is about how we interpret reality, based upon our personality types and thinking styles.

Depression is a common mental illness

Anyone can become depressed – even successful and famous people will battle with this condition. According to the Mental Health Foundation, depression is the most common form of mental disorder in the UK.

Symptoms of depression

• Feeling restless, sadness, tense and anxious.
• A decrease in the level of self-worth or self-esteem and increased pessimistic thoughts.
• A reduction in feelings of pleasure from activities that normally would be pleasurable.
• A change in sleeping patterns – lethargy, feeling tired all the time, and having less energy.
• Losing interest in normal activities, hobbies and everyday life.
• Feeling that life isn’t worth living and possibly suicidal thoughts.
• Spending a lot of time thinking about what has gone wrong.

Depression affects millions of people. Being open, accepting, and loving toward yourself and what you’re going through may help you navigate depression.

Drinking too much alcohol won't help you solve your problems and could also make you feel more depressed.
