EmpowHer Asks: What tips do you share with women to help reverse depression? Carole Klein: Well, there aren't any quick easy tips to give someone. There are things, if they are slightly depressed, heavily help them, like exercise always helps, getting out and mingling with other people always helps, giving to other people and not thinking about yourself will help, finding joy and laughter, there are many things. But if you are seriously depressed, if you've been in that depression a number of weeks, then you do need to talk with someone and find out what kind of concept you have that are causing that depression. What's driving you into a feeling of not finding joy and happiness in life that you used to enjoy and the different elements of your life that you've lost or you felt somewhat down about. If you are feeling down, then and can't get yourself up, well then you do need someone to help you. Really just change thinking concepts because that's what we're doing. We are looking at where a person has maybe thought in a way that they are worthless or that they are unloved or that they've done things that no one could ever forgive them for or they are just disliking themselves for certain reasons, or they think other people are or they can't think their way out of a homelike situation. There are lots of reasons for feeling down and those reasons and the concepts they have tell them it's hopeless, it's not going to work out, but that's rarely true.
