Navigating Tough Days and Understanding Depression
We all have days when life feels harder than usual. Typically, we can overcome these feelings by seeking support from loved ones, taking it easy, and getting enough rest. However, when these emotions persist, it can feel like an uphill battle to even get out of bed in the morning. Depression is an experience that goes beyond sadness – it is all-encompassing, persistent, and can have a detrimental effect on your overall quality of life.
What is Depression?
Depression is a mental health disorder characterized by a persistently low mood or loss of interest in activities, causing significant impairment in daily life. Depression is a common and serious mental illness that negatively affects how you feel, the way you think and how you act.
