Meditation for yoga and depression

Major depression is the most common mental condition in the United States. Last year, more than 16.2 million people who reported at least one major depressive episode could suffer from major depression. Symptoms of depressed mood include at least four other symptoms reflecting functional changes such as loss of interest or joy in everyday activities, sleep, food, energy, concentration, self-image, or thought of recurring death Or suicide. Some people have to experience symptoms for at least 2 weeks in order to be diagnosed as major depression, but some people experience subtle moments of depression and thought patterns.

There is an increasing number of studies on whether yoga and meditation can help depression. And nationwide clinicians who heard about the merits of meditation and yoga bring these tools to patients and are seeing positive effects.

Meditation may help to avoid recurrence

The study conducted in 2004 examined whether cognitive therapy (MBCT) based on the mental state of people suffering from major depressive episodes can prevent recurrence. Interestingly, they discovered that MBCT is effective in significantly reducing the risk of recurrence (78% to 36%) for subjects who experienced more than three depressive episodes. However, in patients with less than 2 episodes, the recurrence rate increased by 20 - 50%.

The difference in this study appeared to be related to the cause. For people whose depression was caused by serious events, such as the closing of a relationship, the loss of work, the heartache approach, was not beneficial as relapse did not have a clear cause. This makes sense: If you are saddened by recently experiencing major losses, talking to someone about that experience may be more useful than exercise observing exercises. However, if you make your brain wiring routinely ruminant, exercises that can be aware of rebellion may be more beneficial. It makes believe incredible and pulls himself from the experience you may need.

In fact, there is consistent empirical evidence that MBCT can reduce the likelihood of recurrence of people suffering from depressive episodes. One study showed that participants in the MBCT group had a 26% lower probability of entering another depression episode within one year compared to the "treat as usual" group . A similar result was obtained in another survey, and the possibility of experiencing another episode in the MBCT group was reduced by 13%. The results of both studies are statistically significant, indicating that this is not only a coincidence.

Anxiety helps prevent recurrence, rather than rescuing people from onset of depression. In an article written in Mindful, clinicians have argued that feeling may not be the best approach when someone is depressed. When people become depressed, the brain is compromised in such a way as to make actual mind practice more difficult. If mindful force is often defined, it is impossible for people of major depressive episode to carefully observe the true experience without judgment and abandon it. My experience working in a psychiatric hospital was overwhelmed by the negative self-story that came out when the patient tried to practice with all their heart. Without the ability to observe as "not so true" by stepping in, they remained suffering.

Yoga may be a mild to moderate depression

Recent studies using both yoga posture and respiration show that there are some positive benefits when practicing two to three times a week at home for those suffering from mild to moderate depression I was found. In the group twice a week, twice a week, participants showed a significant decrease in depression at the end of the study. Depression scores declined from moderate to lowest. In another study conducted at the University of California and Johns Hopkins University, similar results were obtained in patients with mild to moderate depression. Yoga practices seem to be helpful in restoring mild to mild depression.

Three Tips for Treatment of Depression

If you keep feeling down, talking to experts is always helpful, but there are three tips here to try to work in a more depressed state of mind.

  1. Please look at the early signs. Compassion helps make us more conscious of our personal warning signs. Does your body give you a cue? Does the depression start with a negative way of thinking? If you can take these clues and take positive actions you can avoid getting into a deeper depression.
  2. It moves. Moving your body through yoga exercises, walks, swimming etc. helps to prevent negative thoughts and severe depression. If you feel uncomfortable and difficult to find motivation, let's do something in a short time. Take only a few minutes from your day and remember that you have a good chance to help you feel a little better. Or think of a way to reward you when you are done.
  3. Be friendly to yourself. Sitting in a state of self-critical heart is not easy. It hurts and I feel like it will last forever. Tolerate these emotions and even explore it requires much courage. Please provide kindness, compassion, encouragement. Do not feel like you have to change everything right now. And although it may not be pleased at the moment, I remember, and ultimately these emotions pass.
