Depression is not your fault
We all feel a little low from time to time – it’s quite natural. However, if you continue to feel low even though there are positive things happening in your life, you are depressed. This means that feeling low has developed into depression.
Depression is not simply feeling a little down this week, it is a state of mind where everything seems hopeless. And once you get to this point, your whole outlook changes and you start thinking how miserable and pointless everything is.
One of the first signs is that your emotions feel out of control no matter what you do. Your thoughts continue to get more and more negative no matter how hard you try to focus on positive things. The sad part is that usually people around you seem unable to understand why you feel so sad, and eventually you enter into a feeling of absolute hopelessness that is hard and very difficult to overcome.
But don’t feel alone – there are many people sharing your symptoms and they also have lived their lives in a fog of depression. Most of them feel that nothing can really help them, and like you, they’ve probably tried a lot of things that hasn’t worked.
As I am sure you already know, depression interferes with your concentration and memory. It interferes with your sleeping pattern and you usually lose interest in things you used to enjoy. It can bring about a change in your weight and you might even start thinking about death or suicide.
It is important that you understand the depression is not your fault and is by no means a indication that you are not a normal human being. Depression happens to the best of us and there are millions of people all over the world suffering from depression.
A lot of these people have been able to overcome depression with the simple yet effective method of hypnosis. The idea that there must be a drug to cure people’s problems, are disappearing quickly.

No one deserves to live with depression and Serenity Hypnosis Stop Depression Therapy can help you overcome the darkness that depression creates. This therapy will help you become better and stronger and reclaim the happy life that is rightfully yours.
Depression has many causes. Feeling depressed may be a response to certain events in your life, or a certain basic need that is not being met, but most often you do not consciously know why you get depressed.
Tragedy, the death of a child or spouse, severe and prolonged stress, and adverse life circumstances such as divorce or job loss are often the result rather than the cause of depression. Depression is a unique human affliction. It has different meaning and consequences for your sufferer.
The most common symptoms of depression are:
- An interrupted sleep pattern
- Waking up feeling exhausted
- Difficulty concentrating
- Lacking motivation
- Worrying and feeling tense
- Becoming upset or tearful for no reason
- Feeling irritable
Other tell tale signs of depression are:
- Feelings of worthlessness
- A sense of futility
- Poor personal appearance
- Flat voice or slow speech
- Thinking that the worst possible outcome will happen
- Blaming yourself for things that go wrong
- Spending a lot of time on things that make you feel bad or sad
Depressed people sometimes suffer from anxiety as well. Drugs can on some occasion be effective in relieving depression symptoms, but they do not cure depression, they only help the person deal more effectively with their problems.
Often depressed people get to a point where even getting out of bed or facing other people becomes a challenge. This is because once you are depressed you have a negative outlook on life. The depressed thinking style stirs up negative and unwanted emotions. This in turn leads to poor health and out ability to think clearly. And because depressed people sleep poorly they wake up feeling exhausted and lacking motivation, which makes negative thinking even more likely. What a cycle!
When you have depression and negative thoughts for a period of time they become imbedded in your subconscious and you continue to have them. You might have already tried to change your thought pattern but it has probably already become a habit. What you need is a new set of thoughts and the skill to implement them into your subconscious and the only way to do this is through hypnosis.
Negative emotions make us unhappy or sick. Positive emotions keep us happy and well. It is a simple as that!
There is no part of your life, which will be left unaffected when you suffer from depression. Our focus at Serenity Hypnosis is to get you better and helping you get to a point in your life where you can reclaim your strength and control the situations in your life.
Things that can help you:
The first thing to do is talk to your doctor. There are medical disorders that can create depression and this therapy is not intended to replace medical treatment.
It is also important that you start eating healthy food. Go on a sensible diet and cut down on the junk food. You need to start taking care of yourself and what better way to do this than eating healthy.
Exercise is a wonderful therapy for depression. When you exercise you benefit with a positive boost in your mood. So whether you run, walk or do gardening, it’s all good. It is a well-known fact physical activity leads to feelings of well-being. It eases stress and anxiety and lets you sleep restfully. A 30-minute walk or jog three times a week is a very effective help for relieving major depression. (Exercise Motivation Therapy)
People suffering from depression frequently suffer form anxiety as well so it is important to invest in a Stress Management Programme. Serenity Hypnosis has a wonderful Stress Management Programme as well as a great relaxation exercise. Almost everyone suffers from excess stress and what is important is how we learn to cope with it.
Our reaction to stress factors whether positive or negative will determine the state our body and mind will be in when dealing with stress. One of the most important things you can do for your body and mind as well as aiding in stopping your depression is to practise relaxation.
The more relaxed you are the easier you will be able to control depression. Most people find it is life-changing experience once they know how to relax. A bonus of course when you use Serenity Hypnosis Relaxation Exercise is that you also learn instant relaxation.
The last thing but the most important things you can do is of course the Stop Depression Therapy. Depression moves in a cycle of negative, depressive thinking and worrying which leads to increasing stress levels and therefore even more negative thoughts.
Thoughts are not just a running commentary on what you do – they play a active role in influencing your feelings and behaviour. Ways of thinking can also become habits, just like ways of doing things. And like other habits, some ways of thinking can become unhelpful. And like all habits, unhelpful thinking habits take an effort to change.
Research has shows that hypnosis is very effective in treating depression while other therapies and drugs may actually prolong the period of depression. And even though this therapy does not replace medical treatment it has been proved to end depression successfully.
New positive suggestions trigger new behaviour in your unconscious replacing old negative thinking with healthy new behaviours.
Depression can be tough, but it can be overcome through hypnosis. You can take charge of your life again. All you have to do is listen to the therapy and you will banish depression and despair for new hope and happiness.
So stop feeling that life has lost its meaning. Use the power of your subconscious mind and take the steps to be free of depression. Embrace the hope that this therapy offers you and move forward with your life.
