Another dimension to our Flexercise Zoom class this morning, with ‘ bring a cuddly toy’ session. As you can see, we had a wide range of toys from flamingo to anteater! It felt to me like bringing a friend to exercise with. Benefits also were improved co-ordination, knowing what our arms and legs were doing!
With depression, you may have been feeling lonely or withdrawn for a while, and not been able to ‘snap out of it’. Daily life becomes a chore, and simple things become a challenge. It may be difficult to socialise, and things that you enjoy doing lose their appeal.
How does it start?
Depression may start from a life event such as bereavement, or build up through lifestyle or relational difficulties. You may suffer from a loss of confidence and self-esteem, and lose interest on yourself: how you dress, and care for yourself. Feeling tearful and irritable, a lack of patience, a sense of frustration are all common signs of depression. Life is no fun, and it is difficult to lift your mood.
How can counselling help?
Counselling can unlock the door into understanding what contributes to depression. It is about being able to talk about your experiences, without being judged, or feeling embarrassed or awkward. Depression affects people on different ways- you are unique, and important, and deserve a chance to feel better.
I felt very lucky to have a few moments with this butterfly the other morning. It really brightened up the day.
