Overcoming Anxiety and Depression
‘AMan’s life is what his thoughts make of it’ Marcus Aurelius.
Anxiety and depression often occur as a response to the challenges that life throws at us. However, the negative thought pattern, which results, can then become engrained into the neurology of the brain and subsequently begin to influence all aspects of our life. Every thought produces a physical response in the body, by changing the way that we think, we change the hormones that are released into our body and the way that we feel. Being happy, strong, relaxed, and contented are all skills that we can learn. By observing our own thought patterns we develop the ability to guide our brain in a more positive direction and through repetition we are able to change the neurology of the brain.
