Overcoming College Depression

Depression affects many college students…

Conventional wisdom suggests that at any given time 1/5 to even as high as 1/4 of the population experiences intense feelings of depression and anxiety.

It doesn’t matter how old you are (even it is becoming more apparent in children), what your socioeconomic status is, what your race is, what your gender is, or where you live, that all people are prone to experience these insidious feelings.

They can become not only terrible to live with, but also debilitating.

Depression incidences have become more common place with diagnoses and troubles occurring in college-aged populations.

There are many reasons as to why it “seems” to be on the rise, or at least people want to think that. There has always been depression in college-aged individuals, but it hasn’t increased as much as it has being diagnosed more readily and efficiently given proper professional standards that exist.

There is more support being offered in terms of education, awareness and interventions being put into place to help treat depression.

Most depression experienced in college students is a by-product or result of stress. Many students are living away from home for the first time ever and have never really had to make important decisions, let alone even plan living arrangements on a daily basis.

When you add the pressures of studying required to succeed in school, things can become mightily overwhelming for students and over time, this can be extremely taxing mentally, not to mention emotionally and physically.

When the stress builds and the anxiety worsens, often times it can lead to mild to severe forms of depression in individuals.

Many students who feel the pressures associated with college often times start to feel and show signs of depression that they do not even know is depression. Usually, there will be drops in grades, lethargy, wanting to sleep too much, loss of appetite, nausea, and irrational worrying which takes away from the individuals’ quality of life. The longer these symptoms persist, the more likely they are to become stuck in a rut and start to feel “hopeless” that their situation (feelings of despair) are never going to improve.

In some severe instances, where they or their parents are putting too much pressure on them to succeed and they begin to feel like “failures“, it is not uncommon for them start to have suicidal thoughts.

When it gets this bad, there definitely has to be an intervention!

Since most of this systemic depression stems from worry and anxiety, hypnosis is an exceptional tool for treating the depression in students. When you alleviate the negative thinking through relaxation techniques and post hypnotic suggestion, the depression will often times lesson because the symptoms which were leading to it (stress, frustration, anxiety and worry) are now removed through retrained thinking.

Hypnosis has the ability to create and change old mindsets and replace them with new ones.

Also, hypnosis can stop negative thoughts by teaching individuals to visualize positive outcomes for the situations they used to view as being negative. In essence, hypnosis can change and re-create the negative talk that people possess that leads to depression.

In moderate to severe cases of depression, it is always best to consult with a psychologist or psychiatrist to diagnose whether or not the depression is caused by chemical imbalances in the brain.

If you’re a college student who is recognizing anxiety in your own behavior and the onset of depression, or see it in a college friend then consider intervention now. if your symptoms are not too advanced then you can get back onto a healthy positive plane with the help of this self-hypnosis product on college depressions you can listen to on your MP3 device >>>
