Talking about depression can be really difficult. It’s important that you know the facts about depression and specifically, your depression because it’s on a scale. There is no one absolute diagnosis for depression as those who have experienced it will be at different spokes of the spectrum. For instance not everyone who is experiencing depression will be suicidal. Not everyone will be fatigued. It’s important to know what your specific symptoms are so that you can more easily and clearly know how to talk about depression at home or at work.

Travel can do wonders for everyone if done regularly and with awareness – obviously not in the clinical sense (before I get in trouble with various counsels) but from a therapeutic perspective. What I mean here is that you’re not just booking a holiday because you’re so overwhelmed/stressed out that you need to run away and escape to 30 degree heat and room service. I’m talking about planning your entire year around your time away rather than the usual way we do it, around work. Some people already do this and I’m pretty sure they‘re happier for it. You see, this is where your values come into play. What’s most important to you? You can’t just say health and then burn yourself to the ground before you take time for yourself.
