I have been pretty open about the fact that I have battled depression and anxiety. If you have followed along on my blog, you know it got dark but you probably don’t know HOW dark. It has been five years and I am now mentally ready to share a little more in-depth about the battle I faced. It is not a pleasant experience to talk about but I find people need to hear that others have gone through it and made it through.
Anxiety… It is something so many struggles with, yet many times there is no conversation about it. In fact, according to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, more than 18% of the adult population suffers from anxiety, yet only 36.9% will seek treatment.
As parents are facing the devastation of their lives being turned upside down, sometimes parents lose sight that their children’s lives have been also turned upside down. Men and women all over are battling a loss of jobs, essentials working overtime with fear for their own health, domestic violence, fear, depression, and so many more overwhelming feelings and circumstances thanks to Covid-19. What about our children? Are they also feeling the Corona blues?
Fighting Depression Naturally with Diet and Exercise
How you can reduce the symptoms of depression with a carefully constructed diet and exercise program.
Twenty percent of Americans suffer from depression each year and of that number six percent will suffer a Major Depressive Disorder. That is one-fifth of the population suffering this crippling disease and at least ten of that twenty percent will no doubt suffer in silence. As our day to day lives become more and more crammed with responsibilities both at work and at home, that number is only going to increase. So, is there something we can do now to prevent depression and anxiety from taking over our lives? The answer is yes and it can be found in the food we eat every day.
