Sailing Along

I like to sail. It's an enjoyable activity in so many ways. The only thing I don't like is when we need to run the engine when we are in a hurry to get somewhere. Engines are noisy and can vibrate an entire boat. It's much more pleasant to let the wind take us where we need to go by setting sails and adjusting them as needed. The same can be true for life. I can "rev" my engine and increase my stress to get somewhere fast. But often a much less stressful way is to adjust to life's "winds" and let them slowly get me to my destination. I hope you try sailing through parts of your life.

In a recent Quick Boost poll we asked participants about Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). We asked about it because there is a tremendous amount of research that shows that it is very effective for treating depression. It has been made popular by a number of helpful books, not the least of these is Feeling Good by Dr. David Burns, a psychiatrist.

The biggest response to our poll was "I don’t know what CBT is". A third of our respondents choose this. This is very sad because this is such an important technique for therapy and for self-study. Countless hours of therapy and personal work might be wasted by depressed people because they don't know about CBT.   Read More »
