Before I get into the 5 minute depression busting technique, I need to just roll things back and smash through some very common myths which are currently blocking your ability to become mentally fit and healthy.
Living with a mental health difficulty really doesn’t have to be as hard as many people make out.
Today is World MS Day 2017 (& if you want to be involved use these hashtags #WMSDay and #LifeWithMS).
Now, while I don’t have MS myself but over the course of the past few years I’ve met a few people who are struggling.
But, if you’ve never met someone with MS (or quite possibly you have – you just didn’t know it), then chances are you’re not likely to know just how difficult it can be.
Hey, I need to say sorry for being a little AWOL the last couple of weeks.

It’s something I started doing to help myself cope with the craziness of running two businesses and trying to look after my family.

Now, I am absolutely not one of those dog owners who pampers their pooch with coats, hats, and getting their hair and nails done.
I respect that they’re dogs (and mine are both quite un-handbag like…)
I just simply hate the smell of wet dog.
As a psychologist I work with people from all walks of life (and who have a whole host of different difficulties), and depression is by far the most common difficulty I come across.
As with all mental health difficulties depression really doesn’t care whether you’re young, old, black, white, green, male, female …
When your brain decides life is just too difficult it goes into shutdown mode and ‘bam’ every ounce of motivation you once had is gone.
