Depression is the lowest state the psyche exists at. Depression is essentially giving over to negative feelings that constantly feed back into the emotional state of the person experiencing the feelings, locking them in.

My first step in treating my clients is to prove to them that Depression is only a negative feedback loop of bad feelings, and that change is easy to attain with practice.

One notices that people who claim to be depressed share a few common characteristics. They move slowly, they fold themselves in as if they are trying to hug themselves and thier facial structure is slack and unfocussed.

When we are excited and enthusiastic we present entirely differently.

We are boyant, we smile, we move quickly and we hold strong tension in our bodies and faces, ready to act at a second’s notice.

Try standing up straight with your chin up and a smile on your face for a moment, thinking about something positive and uplifting that you’ve experienced in your life.

Can you be depressed while you are doing that?
