"How The Speed of Your Life Can Cause Depression"
I'm learning more and more why my perfectionistic, work-aholic lifestyle of the past contributed to my depression. I'm meeting more and more who are recognizing this in their own lives. Some are living successful lives and there's really no cause for depression. They've got a great job or company, earning lots of money, have a loving family, etc. But they "burn the candle at both ends" and then wonder why they are depressed.
Dr. Greg Jantz shares the following...
"Time is a precious commodity in our fast-paced society. If you want to insult another person, just call him or her 'slow'. We pack more activities into our day until our schedules are calculated to the minute in order to get everything done...
When the speed of life overtakes the substance of our activies, we are on a crash course for depression...
Like the proverbial rodent in the wire wheel, we spin and spin, going faster and faster, but getting nowhere. When this truth finally dawns on us, we break down and stop moving altogether."
Dr. Greg Jantz hit the nail on the head for my depression. I see more and more men especially like this in business around me. They're about to hit a glass wall and they're wondering why. Then, they make things worse by telling themselves they should be tougher than this and should suck it up. Yikes!
If you're one who is living life way to fast. Learn to say 'no' to some stuff you've got packed in your life. Put your family and health first or you won't have either to enjoy the rest of your life.
(Dr. Jantz is the author of ”Moving Beyond Depression”. who I refer to above. I'm currently enjoying the book.)
There is hope! You are worth it!
