Stress. Anxiety. Anger. The “blues”. Depression. Mood swings. From everyday events to moments of sheer terror or excitement, the brain works together with the central nervous system to trigger reactions. Those reactions are a window into your emotional health. For example, feeling good about yourself and keeping your problems in perspective are signs of good emotional health. Feeling depressed for a long period of time, however, may be a symptom of mental illness.
Even emotionally healthy individuals will sometimes have bad days and emotional problems. But being in poor emotional health for long periods of time can lead to failing physical strength. Depression is a condition that can affect anyone, regardless of age, gender, or situation. Depression in women, depression in children, and elderly depression all reveal themselves in different ways with various symptoms.
A Natural Depression Treatment Is Available
Prescribed medications for anxiety and depression are at an all time high. Sometimes the diagnosed condition is a chemical deficiency that will only be helped as long as the medicine is present. Other times, we want prescribed medications to “get us through a rough spot.” Either way, these drugs can carry dangerous, undesirable side effects and addiction.
When we maintain good emotional health, it benefits our work habits, our parenting, and everything about our lives in general. And this can be done without relying on prescription drugs!
