Do you experience any of the following?
If you have recently gone through a difficult time in your life, such as being made redundant, bereavement or a relationship break up for example, then it is natural to feel any number of emotions. These may include sadness, loneliness, hurt, loss, grief, anger, despair, worry, or hopelessness.
You may feel a general loss of motivation and become emotionally detached.
When you experience feeling this way it’s easy to put a label on things and think you are depressed. However there is a difference between depression and being depressed.
DEPRESSION VS DEPRESSED
Depression is a strong emotion. When you are caught in a sustained state of high emotional arousal, it is difficult to put your problems into context. Your mind starts to ruminate, making it impossible to switch off.
The longer you remain in this state of mind, you become drained, and you withdraw from life and the things you once enjoyed. You see the world through very black and white lenses.
WHAT CAUSES DEPRESSION?
Mind set plays a big factor in why some people get depressed and others don’t.
Depression isn’t always events driven. Nutrition and physical health also play a crucial role.
There is a now a growing amount of research that connects depression to gut health. Around 95% of serotonin, the neurotransmitter, which regulates your mood, libido, motivation, energy and manages your pain receptors, is created in the gut. If your gut health is poor and inflamed because of your diet, this impacts your bodies ability to produce serotonin.
