Depression and Anxiety

Depression and Anxiety

A debilitating disorder, but you can take control !

Do you wake up every day with a headache? Recent research has suggested that the cause could be depression. If you awake tired and listless, feel irritable and anxious, it may be a depressive disorder. Depression is a psychological condition that changes how you think and feel, and also affects your social behavior and sense of physical well-being.

Depression and AnxietyWaking up with a headache has traditionally been associated with sleep disorders, and past studies have reported a high association between the headaches and obstructive sleep apnea syndrome. No previous study had examined other diseases and disorders — such as mental disorders — that may cause chronic morning headaches. A recent study found the most significant factors associated with the headaches were anxiety and depressive disorders (28.5 percent of people with both disorders had chronic morning headaches vs. 5.5 percent of people without) — not sleep-related breathing disorders.

Unfortunately, depression and anxiety are not always diagnosed, because many of the symptoms mimic physical illness, such as sleep and appetite disturbances. Recognizing depression is the first step in treating it. Here is a list of some of the more common symptoms. Keep in mind that depression and anxiety are very unique in each person affected. Some may show one or more signs while others show many. The intensity of the symptoms will also vary for each individual.

Symptoms Of Depression and Anxiety:

Persistent sad, anxious, or "empty" mood
Feelings of guilt, worthlessness, helplessness
Decreased energy, fatigue, being "slowed down"
Feelings of hopelessness, pessimism
Loss of interest or pleasure in hobbies and activities that were once enjoyed, including sex
Appetite and/or weight loss or overeating and weight gain
Difficulty concentrating, remembering, making decisions
Insomnia, early-morning awakening, or oversleeping
Thoughts of death or suicide
Persistent physical symptoms that do not respond to treatment, such as headaches, digestive disorders, and chronic pain
Restlessness, irritability

While the cause of depression is as individual as the symptoms, we do know that biological and genetic factors, environmental influences, and childhood or developmental events play a strong role.


For a person experiencing anxiety or depression, exercise may not be high priority, but evidence shows us that exercise positively effects mood enhancing neurotransmitters in the brain. Exercise may also increase endorphins, release muscle tension, improve sleep and reduce stress. Exercise is in no way intended to replace medical treatment. Yoga is a combination of physical exercises and controlled breathing techniques designed to harmonize the mind and body, helping you to relax and feel more serene making this a very good option to consider.
