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

I was really quite surprised about the results of our most recent Quick Boost Poll results. More than half of our respondents said that they didn't consciously use sunlight to help with their depression. We didn't ask why that was the case but from a few comments and my experience it probably comes down to two simple issues: 1. It is hard to get out in the sunlight when we are depressed and 2. Many people don't understand how helpful it can be.

I certainly understand how it can be hard to get outside when you are depressed. Just getting out of bed can be quite a challenge. It can also be the case that we don't live in a place where we can get sunlight year round. So why might it be important to put in the effort to get a daily dose of sunlight?   Read More »
