  • As a genetically programmed-toward-depression being,I agree that this article is good for the other guy. Exercise is good for the body and soul; eating right is also good for the body and soul; putting on a happy face is good for appearances. - 6/9/2015 6:39:27 PM

    One of the better articles on depression. The advice mirrors what Dr. Ahmed and others have said.There are many types of depression as well as causes. I have "danced" with the dragon of depression for many years. I do not take medicine because I've found my balance and can easily tell when it is starting to come on. I know what to do. My number one method is exercising. Number two is getting enough sleep. Number three is building positive relationships around me. Number four is getting outdoors in light at least 15 minutes or more per day. - 3/3/2015 1:34:53 PM
  • I agree with what has just been said. Most depression/anxiety is a medical issue. - 3/3/2015 11:51:46 AM

    While most of these are excellent ways to help offset depressive tendencies, it is important to recognize that clinical depression is a disease, just as other biological diseases. Telling the depressed individual to "cheer up and think positively" is detrimental to his/her recovery, while a positive attitude once recovered is helpful. - 3/3/2015 11:04:39 AM
