Bringing Mindfulness to Depression

Bringing Mindfulness to Depression

While reading on this topic I came across a comment from this section says “depression has been called a thinking disease” meaning our thoughts, particularly negative, can increase or move us into depressive tendencies.  This made me think of the role of Giftedness in the equation.  More food for thought.

55th Birthday

Here I am, 55 and enjoying my youth.  I am still having my depressive moments but truly think I am doing well.  I still have some work to do on my responses and mindfulness will help from this.  I need to take the first steps.

Camping Day 2

Camping Day 2

Well it’s now past midday, dawning on evening and my temper is rising, along with my level of stress.  We looked at trucks today, trying to get an idea of the appropriate model and year.  That was all and good, however after a visit to Costco I was ready for some time off my feet.  My lower back/upper butt area is also making itself known again and that is not improving my disposition.

So now I relearn that our friends have arrived at the campsite (their own) and I see socializing in my future.  Not what I really want at this point in the day.  My antisocial spirit is coming out.  Put that together with my mood and, well, you get the picture.  Perhaps mindfulness will help me adjust.

Anxious again

Anxious again

I’m stressed again this morning, brought on by having to play the moderator in family issues, and still keyed up over having to do performance reviews on my staff.  I am not cut out for the supervision role, I don’t feel like I am anyway.  Mindfulness, or my use of it, would lead me to believe it’s because I don’t I don’t have confidence in myself.  That’s certainly one of the schema that I’m reading about, just don’t recall which one at this point.  Bottom line I need to consider asking for a relocation, a move to a non-supervisory role.

I try to bring more mindfulness into this equation, to try to understand why I feel this way.  It’s apparent trying to do it at my desk, where I am now, is not conducive to giving these thoughts the attention they deserve.
