Break the Cycle of Depression
Depression can be a mild to severe prolonged state of mind in which normal sadness grows into a condition of hopelessness, lack of motivation and fatigue.
When depression is mild, you find yourself brooding on your own negative aspects or those of others. As depression worsens, hopelessness, low self-esteem and concentration difficulties can bring about a painful state of mind. Depression is a medical condition which can involve many symptoms. Seeking medical attention and assessment for this condition is important.
The Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) for Depression Program can help you to see the patterns of the mind more clearly and learn how to recognize when your mind is spiraling. Research on the MBCT program has shown that it can be as effect as antidepressants in alleviating clinical depression and can cut the relapse rate by fifty percent in individuals who suffer from recurrent depression.
