My hope is that this series has helped others overcome depression by looking at some of the factors that contribute to anxiety/stress in our lives. By reducing the anxiety of daily living, and taking positive action to direct our lives in the way WE want to go, we can begin to climb out of depression and into "life more abundantly."
As a wrap-up, here are my 5 tips to Overcoming Depression:
Tip #1: Tell yourself you are happy
Tip #2: Manage your expectations
Tip #3: Focus on what's good
Tip #4: Make sure your goals are things you can control
Tip 5: Accept yourself the way you are, or do something about it
