OK then . . . Let's do the math on this thing . . .
We're feeling down . . . A little depressed . . . Maybe thinking, I want to pull the covers over my head and stay in bed all day . . . Who HASN'T been there? If you haven't, you're not human!
I KNOW this post will piss people off, but I don't care . . . And perhaps the people who are most pissed are those who need to think about this shit . . .
I'm going to make the point that at least 50% of the people consuming anti-depressants on a daily basis don't need to be . . . Maybe, there's another solution . . .
Do you know that studies, especially in Europe, show that over a six week period, EXERCISE has been proven to be as effective as anti-depressants? Yes, people who reported depression were put on an exercise program, and guess what? They showed marked emotional improvement, equal to that of drugs . . . Which, by the way, have some VERY serious side effects, such as suicidal tendencies for some people . . .
Which takes me back to Saturday at Gold's . . . I was talking to Mikaela, a gym bud . . . She said, after running for a half hour, I'm in love with the human race . . .
Exercise, and some meditation . . . The one-two punch that knocks out that grey depression monster for many . . .
Are you pissed off? Know what? If you are, I don't care, 'cause exercise and meditation put me in a place where I love you anyway . . . :)
Life is beautiful baby!
Peace and love . . .
Until next time . . . Ciao!!
