Depression is characterized by
feelings of sadness, pessimism, a general loss
of interest in life, and a sense of
worthlessness. Depression is more common in
women, which suggests that hormonal factors
may be of significance.
In many cases of depression, there is no
identifiable cause. Depression can be triggered by certain physical
conditions such as stroke, hepatitis, chronic fatigue syndrome and
post-surgical recoveries. Hypothyroidism, postpartum adjustments,
adrenal misfunctions, menopause and in some cases the use of birth
control pills can also cause depression.
The intensity of symptoms depends on the severity of
the depression. Mild depression involves feelings of anxiety or
changeable moods and crying for no apparent reason. In more severe
cases, one might experience a loss of appetite, colon
disorders, difficulty sleeping, loss of interest in what were
enjoyable activities, fatigue, lethargy, slow movement and thought
or extreme agitation and numerousness.
Regular exercise is a very good way to counteract
depression. During exercise, the brain releases endorphins, which
can help promote a sense of well-being. Studies suggest that
depression is more common in less active people.
Depression is a normal part of living and cannot be
altogether avoided, however certain life-styles seem to lesson the
chance of depression becoming a full-blown psychiatric illness.
