Jodie Brenton Life Resolutions On Depression
Depression is a complicated condition, and it can affect anyone, even people who always seem the happiest and put-together when you’re around them. Therefore, it is integral to understand the warning signs and symptoms of Depression so it can be identified and treated early.
Many people who experience Depression have mastered the art of hiding their condition, going through life wearing a ‘happy face’ while suppressing their unwanted feelings. This can lead to ongoing misery and disastrous consequences. Identifying the signs of hidden Depression is essential in helping a person who may be suffering in silence.
The following are a few warning signs to be aware of;
1) Change in appetite and weight – a person’s diet can often tell a lot about their emotional and mental state, and noticeable changes in appetite or weight can be a sign of deeper issues.
2) Changes in sleep patterns – getting enough quality sleep is the cornerstone of good physical, mental and emotional health. Therefore a change in sleeping pattern could be a sign that a person is experiencing poor mental health. Insomnia or sleeping long hours – particularly through the day – are often symptoms of Depression.
3) Avoiding social situations – for a person who continually has to act happy and hide feelings of Depression, social situations can be exhausting and anxiety-inducing. Therefore, it is common for people with Depression to make excuses to avoid social events. It is also important to pay attention to changes in personality – such as going from an outgoing extrovert to shying away from social situations and becoming more withdrawn.
