Yesterday was Blue Monday – the most depressing day of the year.
It is calculated by a “non-scientific” formula – and since 2005 it’s usually the third Monday in January.
Depression in growing in numbers, more and more people feeling depressed or diagnosed with it. I remember being a bit exhausted last year, after a series of events in my personal life. Feeling tired, yet optimistic as always…my GP diagnosed depression and suggested therapy. Do you know how long one has to wait for a therapy session? Six months average – here in Germany.
So I tried some tools I had used before as a coach – on myself. I continued doing QiGong and Taoist mediation. Over time I got better.
My most amazing teacher , Barefoot Doctor, started to write some things about depression last week.

Let me know what you think – even if it goes against this. Let’s talk about it.
