#depression – Immediate Action Drill 2 – Reaction to the onset of a depressive period

Yesterday we started to assemble our toolbox to deal with depressive periods/episodes.

Today we take the first constructive step…

Reaction to the onset of a depressive period

The first thing we need to do is recognise that a potentially depressive period is starting.

This is very important, as we need to establish whether we are feeling low and likely to continue to sink.

The earlier we can take action the better.

So be on the look out for any set of thoughts that set the alarm bell ringing.

Think about the negative thought(s). Are they realistic ? Do they reflect what is really happening?

If the answer is no. Then we have made a big step forward. Now we know our impression of what is happening is negatively biased we can do something about it!

See tomorrow’s post for Immediate Action Drill 3…
