Let us look at PROBLEM SOLVING
When people get depressed, they find it more difficult to solve problems.
Sometimes this means an inability to deal with the problems that started the
depression in the first place, but often it spreads to difficulty dealing with many
of the common problems that occur in daily life.
Why does this happen? There are several reasons:
• Solving problems requires energy – and as depression worsens,
energy levels sink.
• Depression causes problems with concentration, memory, and
decision-making – and these are all valuable skills to have when
solving a problem!
• Everyday problems take a back seat to a bigger problem: The
Depression. Often people become very concerned about their mood
problem, and put aside other issues in their lives.
• Loss of confidence. Remember the effects of negative thinking? If
you think you can‟t do it, it‟s not worth it, it won‟t work anyway – it is
less likely that you will feel confident enough to try.
When you consider these factors, it is no great surprise that problems aren‟t
getting solved and are piling up. What can be done? A good place to start is
to remind yourself that your problem-solving ability is not as good as it usually
is – so go easy on yourself! This is a normal symptom of depression, and
can get better
