If you can manage to summon up a good attitude while being in the abyss of depression and anxiety you will be well on the way to winning the battle.
Our attitude is one of the most important factors in determining the path our life takes. A positive attitude can lift us up out of depression into a life we love.
So what is a positive attitude? What does it mean?
I think of attitude in terms of an aeroplane. An aeroplane climbing is said to have a positive attitude. An aeroplane descending is said to have a negative attitude.
Be mindful of how you think about and react to the events and experiences in your life. If you try and maintain a positive attitude, you will point the plane up and your life will climb to new highs. A negative attitude will point the aeroplane downwards to the ground which brings yet more low moods and negative experiences.
