Psychotherapy


by Ronald R. Parks, MD

A more severe mood disturbance, which is a subtype of major depression, is "seasonal affective disorder" (SAD). Not recognizing SAD can lead to severe debilitating symptoms. Common signs are greater sensitivity to the lack of sunlight in late autumn or winter and its recurrence every year for at least two years and its resolution in spring...

by Joe Kort, PhD

After the holiday season is over, many people suffer from depression. The fast pace to get presents, visit with family, send our cards and get school and work business done keeps the depression at bay. However, returning to work and school, dealing with the family issues which surfaced over the holidays and facing the winter blues can be very depressing...

Psychotherapy


by Michael B. Ellner

The National Mental Health Association lists several reasons as to why people experience negative stress in the form of depression. Some of the more common reasons are loneliness, or seasonal depression in and around the holidays. These can range from the anxiety of family tensions, work issues, financial stress, or getting over a break up...

 

Editor´s Note from Cynthia Lindner: Seasonal Affective Disorder, or SAD is more common in parts of the planet that receive reduced amounts of daylight during those shorter winter days. As wintery storm clouds block the sunshine of many climates, some people who are sensitive to the lack of light notice a change in how they feel.Along with the use of light boxes, many people find that using self-hypnosis and other mindful techniques helps to alleviate the "funk" of SAD.

 

Hypnotherapy


by J Stewart Dixon
ATH Co-Editor of Meditation

There’s a secret, esoteric, deeply private, metaphysical, magic skill I use in order to transcend the winter blues. I am going to reveal it to you right now. Are you ready?: I book a flight to Costa Rica or the Bahamas and stay there with my family for at least a week...

 

Editor's note from J. Stewart Dixon: As a spiritual awakening teacher I get a lot of emails, calls, and questions about depression, unhappiness and how to break free into a life of wholeness, clarity and sanity. I completely understand this line of questioning as I too was depressed for half my adult life. How did I break free?   Here's an article below I wrote about a year ago.  Also check out my book 21 Days for more information about depression and spiritual awakening: http://www.amazon.com/Days-overcoming-unhappiness-enlightenment-Extraordinary-ebook/dp/B009HTGNB0/ref=tmm_kin_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&sr=1-1&qid=1354917307

 

Meditation


by Michael T. Murray ND

Cross-posted from www.Care2.com

We’ve grown accustomed to taking pills when we feel bad–for headaches, insomnia, mild depression, indigestion, and the aches and pains of aging, to name a few common complaints. We’re so used to automatically reaching into our medicine cabinets for quick relief that we don’t stop to ask an obvious question: What’s causing the discomfort?

 

Editor's Note from Elizabeth Wisniewski: The "quick fix" of opening the medicine cabinet for the instant gratification of symptom relief is causing far more damage to your body than you may realize. Instead of treating symptoms by masking them with drugs, go to a chiropractor and get your spine checked for spinal subluxations that are causing disease.

Acupuncture/TCM


by Diane Renz, MA, LPC

In my psychotherapy practice I have counseled women post 40-years-old with various forms of insomnia, either difficulty getting to sleep, or waking middle of the night with mind racing -- unable to go back to sleep for hours, as well as, fitful sleep, filled with tossing turning, to full PTSD symptoms of nightmares and REM disorders. The process of regulating sleep is not found in a pill...

 

Editor's Note from Diane Renz: We are a sleep deprived society, which is associated with physiological disease - but more - we are missing the time our Spirit and Emotions need to process our fast paced lives, leading to outcomes of depression, anxiety, and feelings of emptiness. Create a new relationship to your sleep time by implementing some of these strategies for improved quality of sleep.
