Everything is connected!
The internet and social media have made this a very small world. Used to be that getting in touch with people meant talking over the back fence. A long distance call was a big deal. Now everybody’s hooked up. Communication is fast. Information can really get around.
Our bodies have always been a very small world, but ones of immense complexity. Within us is an incredible intranet of vast complexity.
As they say, “The hip bone’s connected to the back bone. The back bone’s connected to the neck bone. The neck bone’s connected to the head bone.” Imagine the song which connects it all: The thumb bone’s connected to the pancreas. The pancreas is connected to the liver. The liver’s connected to the prefrontal cortex. That would get pretty silly pretty fast, but it points out how little we understand about the complexity of the inner workings of our bodies, and our brains, and our minds.
Most all of us can be kinder to ourselves and others. We can be helpful in the smallest of ways, and make a big difference.
Sometimes the smallest of actions improve our lives and are helpful to other people, even people suffering with severe clinical depression. Being consistent and repetitive with helpful activities is the key!
Sharing useful information helps everyone.
Since everything’s connected, we can all be helpful just by talking about depression over the back fence – and on Facebook.
Our goal at TMS Augusta is to stamp out depression all over the world, starting in our own backyard. You can help with this project. We’ll share with you simple ways you can help yourself, increase your happy chemicals, improve your own mood, and help other people – family, friends, strangers – find what they need if they suffer from the serious brain disorder called depression.
