Care for your mental health in today's tough economic times
The stress and strain of today's troubled economy and the long cold winter months can have a negative effect on some people's emotional state. Even though the days are starting to get longer, daylight is still short which can leave one feeling out of sorts.

You may not feel as alert as you normally do or have a "fuzzy" feeling of low energy or even confusion. If you have trouble prioritizing small tasks or have difficulty making decisions that are routinely easy, like what groceries to buy or when to top off the car's gas tank, this could all point to signs of depression.

All of us get the blues at some point in our lives, but it is important to recognize the signs of depression like sad feelings, unexplained crying, apathy, poor job performance and for individuals in school, declining grades. Those with any of these depression signs may benefit from some level of therapy or medication.

Being proactive about your mental health and taking care of yourself can help alleviate depression and mood swings. Engaging in exercise, going for a walk or meeting friends or family for coffee or some fun activity are recommended mood boosters. It is important to eat a balanced diet, get enough rest at night, do nice things for yourself or find a hobby to help occupy your time.

A treatment that is being used more and more for depression is hypnosis. Hypnosis is a very effective and versatile tool for focusing the mind and using the power of suggestion to change behavior in ways you desire. In fact, hypnotherapy has been recognized as a powerful therapeutic practice by the American Medical Association since 1958.

"Hypnotherapy can help you begin to move in a positive direction and take steps towards healthier behaviors with uplifting and mood-shifting activities," says Dr. Cynthia Davis of the Hypnosis Clinic of Indiana. "Through hypnotherapy you can learn coping skills to relieve anxiety and overcome depression."

Seeking professional help for depression is an increasingly common practice. According to Davis, people should not feel anxious about seeing a therapist or taking medication if needed for depression.

"Depression is a highly treatable illness," adds Davis. "The most important thing is to connect with a professional who can help you restore emotional balance, peace and happiness in your life."
