Good morning everyone and Happy Monday!
Well, Summer is on its way out and here in the Northeast of the States we’re already feeling the chill of Fall. While I LOVE this time of the year, for many people it signals the beginning of an emotional slide that can leave them feeling melancholy and sad. The lack of sunshine can often trigger or exacerbate feelings of depression making the Fall and Winter a very difficult time indeed.
Depression is a very challenging issue to deal with. It affects 350 million people globally and is the leading cause of disability world-wide. I have found that for those afflicted, it can feel as debilitating as knowing you have a life-threatening condition. Depression can leave the sufferer feeling trapped in a life that seems empty. It is a terrible thing to see.
There is much you can do though, to help balance your mood. I have several videos on this topic, from foods you can eat to lifestyle factors you can embrace. Before you begin taking supplements however, I encourage you to go back to those videos and watch them first and see if you can incorporate those habits into your life first, before you start supplementation.
Today’s video was a special request from a viewer who was interested in supplements that might alleviate feelings of depression. I hope he and all of you find the information helpful. As always though, consult with your health care practitioner before beginning any supplements to make sure they are right for you.
Once you’ve watched the video, I’d love to hear from you! Have you used any of these supplements successfully to manage your mood? Or have you tried something different? I’d love to hear your comments below.
Have a great Monday and a wonderful week!
