A friend on mine informed me that there had been an evening’s workshop running at Wat Tyler Park recently on depression. There were approximately 200 people there listening to the speakers.
In relation to the economic climate, people worrying about their jobs, declining health such as Cancer’s and Alzheimer’s disease, life experiences, is it a wonder more and more people are finding it difficult to cope?
In my experience I have always managed to climb back regardless of what life throws at me. But what if you can’t, what happens then? Where do you turn for help, guidance, practical help, support or a kind listening ear?
It would be interesting to find out where people go to get support or help with their depression. Depression may be hereditary, related to life or ill health. What have you found useful if anything that has helped you?
From my experience in the exercise industry and as a trainer to individuals on medication, I have found that regular exercise helps my clients lift their mood in order for them at times just to function. Having someone on side to encourage them to work out and move their body has kept some of my clients going when they had no one else to turn to.
You may not feel that exercise is the answer for everyone, but, I do believe that exercise prescription for depression needs to be more available. Ask your G.P if you feel it is appropriate for you, to enquire if there are any classes or personal trainers in the area.
Reg…. a wonderful series of useful information on memory loss. Jane has helped me understand what we need to be aware of, cope with and plan for as we enter old age. The best part of these books are that they fit in your pocket for easy reference, but, more importantly, the writing is big enough that I can see it.
When I fell and hurt myself at work, you took care of me, would not let me train and I realised just how much you know about the body. I thought I had hurt with my knee which I found out later with you that the problem stemmed from by back- You are better than my doctor you understand so much about the human body and spent so much time with me until I was better sorting the problem out.
A thoughtful series of books, written by someone who understands Alzheimer’s.
A Massive part of my Childhood success- Thank you
I never knew how much mental preparation could benefit until I trained with you. I now know that if I can do it in my head I can do it on the arena floor – with a lot of practise of course, Amazing
Shoulder surgery put me out of action with my 1 2 1 gym sessions for a while, but now with support and persistence from you my trainer I have recovered fully and gained the muscle tone back in my arm which had wasted.
You never asked my to do anything you did not believe I could accomplish.
I found your speech very informative. I know that I am going to be the one that has the primary role in supporting my dad, my mum, and brother and sister. I know it’s not going to be easy and what sticks in my mind is the importance of looking after myself. Your personal input touched a chord that no website could match and I will heed your advice.
Your guidance and support has helped me understand that my sister and I are doing the right things for our Mum.
Talking to Jane helped me understand what was happening to my Dad. Jane helped me to feel more in control and a lot less useless.
