Depression

What is depression?

 

Depression is not something that happens overnight, Depression is something that creeps in slowly, almost elusively, like putting ink in a jar of water, It blurs reality, affects everything and you feel like there’s no way I can clean this up. I don’t even have the energy to think about where to begin and hence sleep instead.

Depression can produce anxiety, guilt, uncontrollable emotions, apathy, hopelessness, discontent, inability to feel pleasure, disinterest, sadness, and repetitive thoughts. It can also affect an individual’s entire body in the following ways: alterations in appetite resulting in either weight gain or weight loss, and a feeling of restlessness. Behaviorally, a depressed person may feel agitated, fatigued, irritable, experience excessive crying, or isolate themselves socially. Lastly, an individual suffering from depression often experiences cognitive disruptions such as lack of concentration, slowness in activity, and or thoughts of suicide.

Depression has different signs in men and women

Women are twice as likely to develop it as men. This is thought to be caused by the fluctuating hormone levels women go through during life. For women, it may occur earlier in life, last longer and be more likely to recur. It is also often tied to stressful life events and seasonal changes. Depression in women is more likely to be associated with anxiety disorders.

On the other hand, men are more likely to experience fatigue, insomnia and stomach and back aches when compared to women. Additionally, men more often feel angry and irritable, whereas women feel sad and apathetic. Women are more likely to attempt suicide, however, men are more likely to actually commit suicide.

EFT Tapping can help in that when you’re experiencing a negative emotional state, your brain goes into fight or flight mode for prolonged periods of time. With EFT Tapping, you are deactivating the amygdala’s alarm that is causing this response in your brain, resulting in a calming sensation. The goal is to focus on the mental issues surrounding your depression and concentrate on accepting and resolving the negative emotions. EFT Tapping is a wonderful way to restore your mind-body connection to a positive and healthy place.

If you or a loved one suffers from depression, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) Tapping will help them to release their emotional feelings. Many people feel trapped in a negative cycle with emotional baggage. EFT Tapping involves focusing on negative thoughts, using the fingertips to tap 5-7 times on 12 of the body’s meridian points and focusing on accepting and resolving the negative feelings. This allows you to access your internal energy and restore balance. With EFT Tapping for depression, it’s possible to grow, flourish, thrive and live a life filled with peacefulness and joy.
