Not Just the Blues: Anxiety and Depression

Depression and anxiety are mood disorders and two of the most common mental illness. A distinguishing symptom of anxiety and depression is disruptions—daily life becomes harder in almost every way, including:

  • Consistent and overwhelming feelings of emptiness, hopelessness, and sadness.
  • Disinterest in one’s hobbies or activities that were once considered fun.
  • Suicidal idealization or attempts.
  • Psychosomatic pain.

Effective treatments are available, and a skilled therapist can often help people avoid many of the devastating toll anxiety and depression can take from people’s lives.

Anxiety and Depression’s Effects on the Body

The effects of anxiety and depression include:

  • Difficulty Focusing: Anxiety and depression often spark negative thinking and disrupt individual’s ability to concentrate. Simple tasks become overly complex and everyday functioning becomes incredibly difficult.
  • Sleep Disruptions: Hypersomnia and insomnia are both common effects of anxiety and depression. For some people, they cannot fall asleep, sleep throughout the night, or wake refreshed. For others, they want to sleep all hours of the day.
  • Indecisiveness: Anxiety and depression often leaves people stuck. Unable to make a decision or move forward, people find they hesitate and procrastinate. Indecisiveness plagues their daily life from big decisions to small ones.
  • Feeling of Fatigue: Listlessness often plagues people who have anxiety and/or depression. These mental illnesses can deplete and demotivate people. Lack of energy is a common problem people with anxiety or depression face. People may also experience slowed reaction times.
  • Sporadic Eating Habits: Just as with sleeping habits, some people may eat uncontrollably while others may not be able to lift a spoon to their mouth. For many people, they may even swing between the two.

How Will Thriveworks Treat Anxiety & Depression?

Thriveworks can help treat anxiety and depression with the following, among other treatments:

  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) can help individuals identify and challenge negative thought patterns and behaviors associated with anxiety and depression.
  • Mindfulness-based therapies can teach mindfulness techniques to promote awareness of thoughts and emotions, reducing anxiety and depressive symptoms.
  • Interpersonal therapy (IPT) can focus on improving relationships and communication skills to address underlying issues contributing to anxiety and depression.
  • Exercise and lifestyle interventions can promote physical activity, healthy habits, and stress reduction techniques to manage symptoms of anxiety and depression.
