Safety is a State of Mind and Proper Training

"We become what we think about." – Earl Nightingale

"The purpose of training is to tighten up the slack." - Morihei Ueshiba

The realization that we become what we think about was the pivotal force in Earl Nightingale's life, lifting him from a life of grinding poverty to helping him spawn an international radio show and become a pioneer in the industry of motivational recordings.

Morihei Ueshiba, the founder of Aikido, was one of history's greatest martial artists. Even as an old man of eighty, he could disarm any foe, down any number of attackers, and pin an opponent with minimum injury to his opponent.

What have these two distinguished gentlemen to do with safety? Nightingale emphasized the idea that we, as individuals, have the capability to choose our own thoughts and attitudes. Ueshiba instructed his students that training is not an event in of itself but a way of life. Controlling our attitudes and living in constant training are at the crux of creating a safe environment.

When we are new at a task, most of us are tentative and cautious. We don't want to mess up and we certainly don't want to get hurt. When we're still new at a task, we tend to have an inquisitive and heightened awareness and we tend to pay attention to instruction. We approach new tasks with a "beginner's mind" and are eager to receive proper training.

With increased knowledge and familiarity with a task, (whether it be driving a car, using a band saw, cooking steaks on the grill, even walking down a couple of flights of stairs with an armful of publications) comes increased confidence. This increased confidence is beneficial, up to a point. A natural inclination for all of us when we become proficient at a task is to start to lose respect for the hazards inherent in the task. While familiarity may not always breed contempt, it does tend to lead to carelessness.

As our proficiency and confidence increase, two thought patterns start to insidiously creep up on us:

1) An attitude of overconfident carelessness.

2) The all-knowing feeling of "Been there, done that. I already know all I need to know about this task and I don't need to know anything more".

What makes these two paradigms so clandestine and treacherous is they both work on an almost subconscious level. If we are not aware of the formation of these attitudes within ourselves, they will take over before we realize it, cloud our judgment and misdirect our actions.

Awareness of our present attitudes and the knowledge that we can control our attitudes is the first step in creating a safe environment for ourselves. Whenever we start to feel that we are total masters of a specific task, it is precisely the time to remind ourselves that, while we may be good at what we do, we have yet more to learn. We need to remind ourselves that accidents are most likely to happen to the beginner and the one who "knows it all".

In fact, it is well documented that pilots are most vulnerable to mishaps when they have 0 to 100 hours flight time (beginner) and when they have between 1000 and 1500 hours flight time ("know-it-all" hotshot). This phenomenon is most likely true in all industries.

Continuous training and review of the basics is the other half of the equation for maintaining a safe environment. Vince Lombardi, the coach of the winning Green Bay Packers, always started the training season with a football in his hands telling his players, "Gentlemen, this is a football". Lombardi knew that a continuous review of the basics was essential in crafting a championship team. That's the way we need to approach the tasks we do – review the basics. Train continually. Tighten up the slack.

One form of training that military aviators participate in is the "what if" game.

"What if you have just taken off from an airfield and a bird is suddenly sucked into your number 2 engine causing the engine to flame out. What are you going to do now, dude?"

The object of this training is to have a course of action already predetermined. Another form of training is to review the operator's manual before using a piece of equipment. Still another is to take a look at pertinent safety regulations on a regular basis. Different situations require different methods of training but the idea is to continually review the tasks that are to be performed, understand the hazards involved, and take appropriate action. Build a culture of continual training. A solid training plan not only increases our proficiency but also makes for a safer environment.

So let's take our cues from these two masters – Earl Nightingale and Morihei Ueshiba. Realize that the thoughts and attitudes we choose will make huge differences in our outcomes and that constant training will keep us sharp. We realize that we will never be entirely free from accidents. This big, goofy, wonderful world of ours is just too full of imperfections and unpredictability. But if we cultivate our attitudes toward safety and continually train at the tasks we must do, we will have done much to minimize injury and damage in our homes and work places, making it a safer place for ourselves and for others.

40 Something?

While in the shower (my best thoughts usually come upon me either in the shower or on the throne) a realization that I was getting old hit me. It wasn't the gentle wake up nudge your significant-other gives you to welcome you into a new day but the massive blow of a 30 lb. sledgehammer dead center in the noggin. 40 something! Wasn't that the name of a TV show a few years back? I remember refusing to watch it, thinking, How boring! Who is going to watch a program about some people going through their mid-life crisis? Curiously, I really want to know what they went through now.

I'm a technical kind of guy. Whenever possible, I seek out a manual or a reference book to guide me to the next step. Am I doing this right? Have I taken all the right steps with my family, my career or spiritual life(just in case a Supreme Being exists). Am I really so lost as to have to rely on a TV program thought up by the Hollywood crowd? The same crowd that lives in a bubble and believes that they know what the lower and middle class person thinks and wants. They are as distant from the truth of the average Joe(and Jane, to be politically correct) as all our self-serving and self-tooting politicians. I must really be lost, then.

How did my parents do it? They seem to be okay. Though she does gripe all the time and he is showing signs of Alzheimer's (maybe that's his defense mechanism against her and he is only faking it.) I don't know, we are two decades apart and I am experiencing a different political and social climate then they did. Besides, I am too young to go with the Alzheimer's thing. How about my friends? Naw, they look as confused in their journeys as I am in mine right now.

If I were to die right now would I leave content? In some aspects I would, in others I wouldn't. I have been lucky enough to see a good part of the world (it is true you can see the world when you join the military). I have been able to see many cultures and experienced many local Montezuma's revenges. So, in that aspect I feel fulfilled but in the aspect that deals with my family life, there are still too many big red X's. How are my wife and two young ones going to survive without my income? I don't own a business that will carry on if I were to disappear.(I make my living the good old fashioned way by using my hands.) And yes, I do have life insurance. Though like the average person, not enough. Very expensive to maintain and then wasted when I don't die before the age of 65. And other methods such as: disability insurance and annuities, forget it: Too expensive. I can barely afford health insurance (and they just raised my rates again!). So no, I am not ready to kick the bucket. My wife would kill me if I did. But do I really need to have a million or two in the bank to stabilize my family? Life does go on you know. Somehow, people pull through; life altering experiences expected though.

How about leaving my mark on society? Nope, that doesn't bother me. Not everyone can be a world class athlete or a Nobel laureate. I don't feel like I need a plaque on my wall or to be a topic in an encyclopedia to fulfill me. It would be nice, but definitely not a driving force in my being.

So why am I even worried about it? Is it going to make any difference? Probably not. I am going to wake up one day and truly feel like this mid-life crisis was all for nothing and that it was just someone's cruel joke on an already stressed out, overworked, and under insured average Joe. But, if sometime in the future you happened to see me driving a Corvette or a Porsche it's not that I am still having my midlife crisis. It's just that I have always wanted to buy a sleek little sports car with enough power to rip the tires to shreds on a single slam of the accelerator but never had the money to buy it until then.

Farewell my friends and have a good life. And for the record, I am 36 right now. I guess I peaked early.

Fighting Depression Head On

Are you always feeling not in the mood to be together with others to have a good time and always feeling down and under the weather? If you are a long time sufferer of depression, then you should tell yourself that you need to be fighting depression head on and win over it. Depression often times can easily get in the way of your daily activities and affecting your normal functions, and your zest for life can quickly and easily dissipate due to depression. That is why you need to gain control of it instead of letting it control you.

If you are suffering from prolonged sadness for quite some time now, you should face these bouts of depression and get yourself diagnosed by a psychiatrist, they are experts who can actually help you out with your problem. Constant visits to a cognitive behavior therapist are a must, and it is important as well to take all the prescribed medicines that the doctor will ask you to take. None of these medications come cheap, but the amount of suffering that a person is going through because of depression is enough reason already for you to start taking notice and fighting depression head on.

Still, a lot of people tend to not recognize depression even it is right before their eyes. You should never try to think this way. Instead, being honest with oneself is the key to you being able to cure such an illness. Never overlook the various symptoms you have, as depressed individuals usually exhibit many uncharacteristic behaviors such as suddenly lacking interest in hobbies that he or she usually enjoys, sleeping too much or not able to get some sleep, suddenly becoming anti-social, talks a lot about death or the feeling of being a worthless person.

There are actually a lot more other symptoms for depression but in case these already fit in your category or of someone that you know of, then go to a reputable psychiatrist immediately in order to see if the depression is still at an early stage or not. From here you will be able to assess how the treatments will actually go.

Depression should not be something that you need to be fearful of. Rather you should just start taking charge of your life and actually face this illness and fighting it in the face. Life is just too beautiful a gift to waste and if you just spend the rest of your life just moping around about every single little thing then what kind of life would that be? You are just doing a disservice to your life. Depression may not kill you but it will certainly kill your spirit if you let it. Do not be a victim and start fighting depression today.

Living With Depression

So you are battling depression?


What has occurred that has led to this day and the battle of you living with depression?

It is a known fact that depression does not just occur one day out of the blue, there must be a tipping point. There must be a starting point, something that is more stressful or emotional than usual.

With a difficult childhood there can often be dark emotions that can come back to life as an adult and lead to a horrid battle of emotions that can cause depression.

Those who experienced the abuse of a bully may also have a return of those feelings as an adult which can lead to depression later in life.

Childhood issues surrounding feelings of neglect, rejection or abandonment can also resurface in adulthood and can lead to stress and depression.

Repressed feelings and buried childhood issues can often surface in adulthood both surprising and shocking you. Ignoring the issues might work for the short term but it will not work in the long run. Counseling and medical management can help to provide the outlet you need in order to deal with the issue to keep it from controlling you and turning into a depressive episode.

The death of a parent or spouse when you are a young adult can also lead to a case of depression. You might feel resentful if you feel like you had to grow up too fast or even if you had to miss out on things that others your age were enjoying.

The end of a long term relationship or even a marriage can also lead to excessive stress and if not dealt with properly can lead to depression.

Physical, psychological or sexual abuse can lead to depression as an adult or even as you age if you have not dealt with the issue or acknowledged the abuse you endured. Stress of this sort certainly requires you to spend time working through the issues so that they do not overtake your life.

The loss of employment or financial pressures can also lead to excessive stress which can, as you know, lead to depression.

Depression can also occur as a result of stress associated with death, criminal activities and the loss of health and wellness.

Illicit drugs and excessive alcohol can result in depression. Certain drugs can initially give you a boost of happiness and feelings of euphoria however, there are just as many drugs and too much alcohol can cause you to feel down, depressed, defeated, and flat.

So while there are many reasons for depression, you can see that it does not have to be a stressful event that occurred just recently. Reasons for depression can be a result of something that happened many years ago and has been repressed as you have gotten older. It is amazing the many things that can cause depression but the true amazement is when you decide to deal with the stressful issues and manage the event and tackle the beast of depression.

Regardless of the cause of depression, getting treatment for depression is a very smart thing to do.

Do not be a victim of depression, decide to live well.

What Works For Depression

In a recent report Mind (the National Association of Mental Health) revealed that 93 per cent of GPs in the UK have prescribed antidepressants because of a lack of alternative treatment options. There are many alternatives for depression that work well in addition to or in place of anti-depressants. What were they thinking?

It usually takes a combination of treatments to stay well. A person who is prescribed antidepressants will still need to pursue a healthy lifestyle - things like exercise, adequate sleep, healthy food and minimal negative stress.

A small proportion of people with depression have what is termed melancholic or biological depression. This includes people with bipolar disorder. For them medicine is almost always required to reach or remain in good health, while non-medical treatments are considered to be supplementary. For non-melancholic depression, treatments that use strategies other than medication are common.

Back to the merits of different treatments.

The Centre for Mental Health Research did a survey of the scientific literature available, and ranked treatments according to the depth and quality of evidence supporting them. (The Medicine Net medical dictionary is a good resource if you need to look up one of the terms below.)

Medical treatments:
Antidepressants and electro-convulsive therapy are both ranked highly with strong scientific evidence for their effectiveness.

Psychological treatments:
Cognitive behavioral therapy ranks highest with strong evidence as being very effective. Interpersonal psychotherapy, psychodynamic psychotherapy and bibliotherapy are all on the next tier. They are supported by scientific evidence as being effective, but the evidence is not as strong.

Lifestyle & Alternative Therapies:
Exercise, light therapy and St John's Wort are ranked on the second tier as useful treatments, with good evidence but not as strong as for, say, antidepressants. On the third tier there is a large group of other promising treatments with less evidence in support. It includes acupuncture, alcohol avoidance, massage therapy, relaxation therapy, vitamins and yoga.

The Black Dog Institute took a different approach, surveying what patients rated as the most helpful treatments. The leader of the study Professor Gordon Parker said that patients "do not necessarily share the views of professionals about effective therapies for depression". Yes, patients can be fairly incisive about what is or isn't working!

2,692 individuals took part in the survey. Leaving aside medicines and "talk therapies", people with depression rated exercise as being the most helpful. They considered yoga, meditation, relaxation and massage to be the next most beneficial, while acupuncture and homeopathy followed with moderate ranking scores. The various herbal and Omega 3 preparations were ranked lowest.

So there you have it. The experience of many is that it takes more than drugs to get well. The more aggressively you pursue the things that may work, the more likely you are to maintain good health. Putting it into practice is the hard part!

Wisdom- the Unique Cure for Serious Depression

Serious depression cannot be cured because it has very deep roots. Many tragedies and even events that we consider commonplace can justify their existence. Just because they occur everyday does not mean that they are less tragic for those who suffer because of them. For each one of us, our pain is very important. Occurrences such as divorce can provoke serious depression, just like the death of someone we loved very much.

The depression that starts to plague a victim of distress is an understandable consequence of their suffering. The depression felt by people who fail and lose their belongings, the depression of those who never had the chance to abandon the same situation and lived all their lives under somebody else's command, the depression of parents who see their kids involved in drugs and in criminal activity, the depression of kids abandoned by their parents, and many other very tragic examples such as these are more than justified by what happened to those who feel depressed. How can they be happy if such terrible things happened to them?

Of course, most people cannot understand what a serious depression means. That is why they try to make depressed people forget their pain, stop talking about their problems, and get adapted to daily life. But how is this possible? They are missing something very important. They lost their heart… They are lost somewhere in space, even though they appear to be here on Earth. How can they continue to live with this wound?

What words can alleviate them? What is the solution for their future?
Words are poor and the future is already as dark as the present.
Tragedies are more than unforgettable! They provoke revolt and indignation. How can we bear their existence?

In situations like these, the unique solution is a contact with the wisdom of ancient times: the wisdom of religion and philosophy. This is the only way a person can find relief and support while facing serious depression that could not be helped because it is an obvious consequence of the tragedy that adversely affected them. They would violently deny any other attempt to alleviate their pain because the superficial attempts to help deeply depressed people do not help; rather, they irritate them. These victims want to be left alone with their pain. They feel that they have the right to suffer. They feel that they can only suffer, and this is the way life is meant for them!
On the other hand, those who suffer cannot but hope to find relief and stop suffering so much, even though they understand that they can only be sad, since their lives are scarred by a terrible event. They need to believe they will stop suffering so much some day.
Once again, only the ancient wisdom can give them the hope to find peace and happiness, after pain and despair.

This is the same wisdom we find in the unconscious side of our psychic sphere that produces our dreams and is also responsible for our artistic and religious manifestations.
The wisdom of the unconscious clearly explains to us the meaning of life and death. This explanation works like medicine for each injured soul, which can finally find an unexpected relief by understanding the meaning of their suffering and how they can transform it into an experience that will develop their psychic sphere and offer them a reason to continue living.
The unconscious shows us that a tragedy is not the end of our road; on the contrary, it is the beginning of another, where we will discover the truth about ourselves and our world. Our attitudes have to change.

Wisdom means comprehension and goodness, which are opposite to the attitudes of revolt and anger that characterize those that are suffering for some reason and cannot endure it.
When we learn to examine reality through the eyes of wisdom, we suddenly start to see that revolt is meaningless because we then begin to understand how things are and how they work. We stop comparing our lives with those of others, we stop complaining about our tragic destiny, we stop feeling sad of our lack or because we don't like our obligations. Everything acquires a different level of importance and our lives have a changed value. Our pain has another meaning.
Wise people can transform the story of their lives in an important mission by transforming their sad experiences into lessons and their tragic destiny into the beginning of a very serious learning process through which they will discover solutions for problems that had no solution at all before their courageous attempt to solve them.

If you examine all the examples of wise people of the world throughout all of human history, you will notice that all of them suffered a lot for some reason. There is no wisdom without pain because there is no wisdom without sensitivity. If it wasn't this way, wisdom would be only a collection of notions.

However, wisdom's superiority of judgment is based precisely on its extreme sensitivity. This can help distinguish the essential knowledge and can never be misled by the cold rational deductions that only care about what appears to be logical according to the general acceptance of this definition, without examining each particular case with comprehension and goodness.

Depression Later in Life

So many things cause depression, but hormones are one of the leading reasons why someone will become depressed. You will find that you may become depressed from a hormonal change. This is why so many women will become depressed later on in the their life. When you are going through the change of life, your moods and feelings are all confusing, but then when you go through the change in life later it still has an effect on you moods and mental health.

You will find that you might be depressed because you feel like you have no purpose. The only thing is that you cannot look at the change as not being able to do something anymore, but changing for the better. You do not have to worry about having products at that time of the month and you don't have to worry about all the discomforts of having a menstrual cycle. The only thing is that you have to keep your hormone levels up when going through the change or you will develop a depression.

There are so many ways that you can increase your hormones during this difficult time. You can take some of the over the counter drugs that will help you keep your estrogen levels up. You may also want to consider seeing a doctor so that you can go into the change without having to deal with depression. However, you may also want to consider talking to a therapist too.

This is because most women do not feel that they are worthy of life after the change. They will also feel like they have lost their youth and become afraid of things like dying. When you consult a doctor, they will be able to help you through your insecurities so that you can beat your depression.

For those who are depressed because they feel useful, you may want to consider seeking some professional help so that you do not end up in a full-blown depression. You will want to make sure that you take care of yourself as well. If you learn how to eat healthy and to excise or stay active, you will be able to fight the depression.

Also if you know anyone who is dealing with serious medical issues you may want to consult their doctor for depression. You will want to take this serious so that you don't end up losing a parent to suicide or self-inflicted wounds. It is very common for the elderly to lose sight of life when they end up being diagnosed for serious ailments. You will want to make sure that you care for your elderly loved ones very carefully so that they can avoid getting a serious case of depression that may hinder living life.

If you find that there is someone that you know who has a problem with depression, young or old, that you make sure that you reach out to them and encourage them to become aware of their own condition. Once you have made their condition known to them, you may want to ask them if they would seek out medical help.

One Million Dollars in One Year

With all the resurgence of interest in self help and spirituality, I have had a lot of contact from people questioning the substance of these teachings.

A few weeks ago, a young man named Josh approached me and said could he come and chat. I of course said yes and on our first meeting, the quick chat lasted almost four hours.

Josh seemed very attuned to what we were discussing, but he kept saying how can we test all this information. Quite rightly he was saying that all the writings were from people who had actually had successes, and these successes, in part could have been attributed to other things.

He wanted to create happiness and wealth from a standing start and monitor his progress. Initially I was a bit reticent, because he wanted me to mentor him, and it would be a reflection on me if everything did not pan out as he was planning.

Over the next few weeks we talked at length and discussed various things, the main thing I learnt was that Josh was very receptive to this knowledge and was applying it without question. I suggested that he just accept what he was told at face value and if he wanted to do deeper research at a later date that was fine.

Out of the blue a week or so ago, Josh announced that he wanted to have the challenge of making, one million dollars in one year. How could I dampen his spirits, after all I was the one who told him that he can have and do anything, provided he believed. Personally I have never put any time lines on an affirmation, but he insisted that he knew he could do it.

I have committed to advising Josh through his challenge, and have a very good feeling about the outcome.

If you want to follow Josh's story go to

Check in regularly and see how he creates One million dollars worth of tangible assests in one year. By the way, Josh is living with his parents and $20.000 in debt.

Should be very interesting, applying all the teachings without question and seeing what he can do.

My philosophy is Wherever HAPPINESS goes SUCCESS and WEALTH will follow

Depression And Our Way Of Thinking

The power of our thoughts cannot be underestimated. If we did not think we would not be human. The famous philosopher, Descartes, decided that the only way he could really know that he was alive was through his thoughts. He worked out that his senses such as sight and hearing could play tricks on him as evidenced through optical illusions or thinking we hear something when nothing is there. The only thing he knew for absolute certainty was that every minute of every day he was thinking. Even in our sleep are brains are active indicating thought processes are in action. When we are alive we are thinking.

The word 'paradigm' means a pattern or a model. Our thoughts are arranged in paradigms in our head. What this means is that our thoughts follow a certain model that we have created for ourselves. Very simply put an angry man lives in an angry world. His thoughts follow a model of anger. It almost seems that everything he sees or hears somehow turns into anger. Do you know anyone like this? Likewise a happy person lives in a happy world. The angry and happy people could be standing side by side looking out at the same world but ultimately see things totally differently.

So where have these models of thinking or paradigms been set up? The answer is they were programmed and set up from early childhood. Who ever our primary caregivers were gave us the blue print for the paradigm that would become our thought patterns. As a therapist I see this over and over again. Anxious people ultimately have one or more caregivers (parents etc) who were anxious. Angry people had a background of anger when growing up. There is a close correlation between our upbringing and the way we think as adults.

It can be argued that depression is a learnt way of thinking and being. If we came from an abused background, full of low self esteem reinforced by caregivers who constantly told us how useless and worthless we were, depressive thinking can become the norm. There are many scenarios that can lead to depressive thinking. Perfectionist thinking grilled into us from our parents can lead to depression.

This brings us to a main point in this paper and that is the concept of being 'comfortable' with our thinking including depressive thinking. Why would this be? It is simply because we have never had another alternative to the way we have been taught to think. If we did experience any of the above listed ways of thinking when we were children, there was unlikely another way of thinking operating side by side with us that offered a more positive alternative. Our family life as children tends to be our whole world despite any alternative ways of thinking that may be presented around us (such as from friends at school).

Often it is only when 'dis-ease' such as depression or relationship breakdown later in life surfaces, that we seek help to find solutions to the problems. "Why am I thinking this way? Why has my relationship died", we may ask? The answer can often be found in our thinking, which may be that "I am used to be treated less than favorably; I am used to having low self-esteem; I am used to feeling low and not worthy – it would be normal and comfortable for me to keep this going despite how unhappy I feel". Really, that is it in a nutshell. The real difficulty for me as a helper, a therapist is to shift this thinking, to get sufferers out of their 'comfort' zone and start to explore more positive ways of thinking and being. It can be quite awkward to move into this new arena, this new way of thinking and being, especially after years of being and experiencing the other negative way of being. But it is possible and if successful can open incredible ways of being that were once only dreamed of. It is possible to have and truly experience health, wealth and happiness. If you don't believe so, it could be time to check in for a new dose of how to change your thinking.

Paxil Warning

FDA warns of suicide risk for Paxil

Do you remember where you were when the FDA ran this warning:

MAY. 12 12:08 P.M. ET

"The antidepressant Paxil may raise the risk of suicidal behavior in young adults, GlaxoSmithKline and the Food and Drug Administration warned in a letter to doctors. A recent analysis of clinical trial data on nearly 15,000 patients treated with both Paxil and dummy pills revealed a higher frequency of suicidal behavior in young adults treated with the drug, according to the letter."

Suicidal behavior! What? This drug was supposed to help reduce depression and other emotional stresses, and yet it actually was found to increase suicide? How can that be?

There were 11 suicide attempts -- none resulting in death -- among the patients given Paxil in the trials. Just one of the dummy pill patients attempted suicide. All antidepressants now carry warnings on their labels cautioning patients and doctors of the risk of suicidal behavior.

That's comforting.

What have we learned since then?

Drugs excite or depress the nervous system. What if there were ways to cause natural changes to the nervous system that would allow the body and mind to heal?

Did you know that Phenylalanine is used to reverse Fatigue, Depression, and Mental fog?

Did you know that Tyrosine is used to reverse Fatigue and Depression?

Did you know that Glutamine is used to reduce Fatigue, Depression, and Mental fog?

These three compounds are natural amino acids that work to feed the brain and nervous system. They are integral to your health and healing. They carry no warnings and do not cause serious side effects.

This might just be a breath of fresh air for you to think there were no options to stress and emotional health.

Way Beyond Drugs

Even beyond nutrition there are many other emotional de-stress protocols to use to help change emotional outcomes.

Emotions generated in the unconscious mind remain there. These feeling are the result of a complicated interaction between different parts of our minds and between the mind and the outside world. Many are unpleasant, painful or embarrassing, and in some way unacceptable to us or society, so we repress them. We push them down deep so we don't have to experience them.

We bury our feelings alive. What do they do? They sit and fester until a moment they seek attention. Then out of now where an old feeling (it's like an old program) rears its ugly head for us to deal with it. How do we deal with it? What plans do we have to do this?

A plan devised to confront and change the negative neurology, our reaction, needs to be implemented. There are a number of ways to significantly change our reason for stress and specifically, depression. Learning how to use them could radically alter your life.
