You Create Your Future

There’s been a lot of negative news on depression research lately, about how sleeplessness can be a sign of depression, how suffering from depression can lead to Alzheimer’s and how depression symptoms can rub off on family members.
 
These stories may make you feel like your depression is out of control and ruining your life, but that’s not the case. You have to remember you’re in control of your life, and you are the master of your progress. Just by seeking out help and trying different treatments you are well on your way to recovery. If you imagine yourself breaking free from the clutches of depression, you will.
 
Depression is usually caused by chemical changes in your brain, so why not work to reverse those brainwaves through meditation? The research on meditation lately has been incredibly powerful in teaching people to feel more compassion and kindness for others, so imagine the good it can do in treating your depression.
