Take Back Control - Yoga!

I find when i'm in the depths of depression that my busy mind stops me stay in control of my body - I eat my feelings or shut off the outside world under a blanket (which aren't bad things) but I want to feel like I'm in control. Megan introduced me to yoga and it is amazing for clearing the mind and owning your body. I started following "Yoga with Adrienne" on YouTube - it is great.

Fully Embrace the Need to Rest

Sometimes my life is just go, go, go and my mind follows suit. Depression helps bring you back to the here and now. It reminds you that you need a rest and to switch off - guilt free. Turn the mind off - settle in for a day on the sofa and a good film, let all the thoughts of what I have to do go. This can't last forever but in moderation your mind will thank you.
