There’s quite a bit of publicity around depression currently, with Prince Harry “coming out” as having sought counselling. But what exactly is depression?
Medically speaking, the criteria for what constitutes depression are in the DSM-V, where somebody is meant to have had at least five out of nine specific symptoms, nearly every day for a minimum of two weeks. The symptoms are quite varied, with some very clear cut, such as wanting to kill oneself or more than 5% weight change, whilst others are more subjective such as change in concentration, being irritable or decreased interest in most activities. That’s the sort of thing a GP or psychiatrist is assessing against as to whether somebody has depression, and whether to prescribe medication.

With the New Year in full swing, it’s definitely time to put those resolutions into action. There’s just something about 2017 that seems promising. I am a big believer that those who dream big break free from limitations and I’m sure that if you’ve ever set your mind to something and had a really strong vision for it, eventually it manifested itself to you. This year, make it all about you and your dreams. If you haven’t done so yet, get a paper and a pen and write down the next 5 practices, which if you really make time for, will make a big difference in your life for the year ahead and further on.

Thanks to celebrities and other health conscious individuals, veganism is now getting recognition for its health benefits and what was once viewed as something for a tiny minority is now adopted by many.
The UK Food Standards Agency defines veganism as “abstaining from the consumption of foods that are or are made from or with the aid of animals or animal products.” It’s a lifestyle choice that sprung from ethical reasons centered on animal rights and environmental factors. But vegans are just as concerned about their health as they are about the world we live in.
