Stress and Depression
Stress is something everyone deals with—whether it’s due to careers or family or aging, or more serious issues like illness or major life changes.
Stress can be eased rather simply by:
- Eating healthy
- Scheduling down time for yourself
- Getting regular exercise
- Getting enough sleep
Depression is a medical disorder that is more than just feeling sad for a short period of time. It can disrupt your daily life while affecting your thoughts, behavior, and overall health.
Depression can be brought on by chemical imbalance, substance abuse, family history, or various diseases. You may experience depression when your life is going well or even when you are under a lot of stress or are going through menopause.
