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.
Weekly Help for Depression Recovery
Helpful Therapy

In last week's Quick Boost poll we asked about what a therapist has done for you that you found most helpful. It was interesting to note that they results were about equally divided as you can see below. The one noteable exception was that no one chose "helped me make better key life decisions".
In my experience with therapists this result shouldn’t surprise us. Very few seem to specialize in a particular problem (like depression or bipolar disorder) or a specific approach. Just take a look at online listings for therapists - they almost all seem to cast a broad net.

So how do therapists approach helping us with depression issues? They are often very eclectic and psychodynamic. They use what seems appropriate in the moment and they have a strong tendency to want you to have insight about your issues. They also understand that for you to work with them on a sustained basis you need to feel supported by them.   Read More »
