Overcoming Depression with Oomph

Overcoming Depression with Oomph


I interviewed Caroline Carr a couple of years ago around overcoming depression. The context was around people who have been made redundant. However, Caroline shared some hugely powerful tips and tools that would be invaluable to  anyone suffering from depression, whether they have been made redundant or not.

Caroline talks about how to spot whether you are feeling depression or the perfectly natural side-effects of shock. Sometimes, it can be hard to tell as some kind of sadness or depression is a natural part of the grief cycle.

She then moves onto sharing easy to implement ways we can change our energy. Doing this can help us feel better and more empowered whatever our mental state. This is what Caroline calls “finding your oomph,” and shares a great tool called ROAR that she goes through, step by step.

This video interview is perfect for anyone who may feel stuck in feelings of sadness, grief or depression. Or, indeed, those supporting someone who may be feeling like this. If you are feeling down or depressed right now, looking after yourself is key. You may find 99 Ideas for Self-Care really helpful at this time.
