Health Matters: With a Little Help From My Friends

Feeling blue is a form of depression and should be addressed, according to University of Alabama mental health expert, Diane Tucker, PhD. She suggests looking at your “life equation”: How much time you are giving and what you are doing to nourish your self-worth. She suggests reaching out to a network of good friends who will validate the strongest parts of yourself. Exercising, satisfying activities like gardening, and journaling are other good options.
