YOUR GUIDE TO
Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy
What is depression?
However, as depression worsens, feelings of extreme sadness and hopelessness combine with low self-esteem, guilt, and memory and concentration difficulties to bring about a severely painful state of mind. To make things worse, you may experience change in basic bodily functions. The usual daily rhythms seem to go ‘out of kilter’: you can’t sleep, or you sleep too much. You can’t eat, or you eat too much. Others may notice that you are agitated or have slowed down, and you find your energy for activities that you used to enjoy, has hit ‘rock bottom’. You may even feel that life is not worth living, and begin to get thoughts that you’d be better off dead.
