I wanted to respond to the thread about depression and anxiety, and this is my first time, so I'm not sure if I'm doing it right.   I appreciate and agree with much of what was said already, and have a few things to add.   Sometimes depression and anxiety can be affected by the food we eat.  Something to try might be to cut out alcohol,  sugar, gluten and dairy for a month and see what happens.   The effect can be profoundly positive if you can stick with it.   A good resource and more information about this is from Kelly Brogan who wrote the book "A mind of your own".   Another thing is the Wim Hof method.  Wim Hof is an amazing guy who holds a lot of world records, but has also overcome depression and his technique is super empowering.  A good intro might be the Vice documentary on you tube called "Becoming Superhuman with Wim Hof"   Another thing,  for Anxiety in particular is the Meridain Tapping Technique,   which is similar to EFT but a little more streamlined and better suited to anxiety IMO.  It can be used to break the link between an anxiety producing thought and that awful antsy feeling in the body,  so that it is easier to just let that thought pass.   I will try to attach a pdf of how to do MTT.   I have used, and continue to use,  all of the above things.  Wim Hof and the diet are part of my daily life.  MTT is as needed.  (not much anymore)

I don't have a link.   I'm not quite sure yet how this works.   I tried to reply while I was on the thread but couldn't for some reason.  I will try to find it again.
