Depression,Thoughts, Feelings,and Psychotherapy

How and when do you know when you are going to have a super workout or run? Sometimes, you might think” today is going to be great or I don’t feel super “and it turns out just the opposite. The real task is to know how to asses. First, there is a difference between thoughts and feelings. Often, the two are confused even though the word” feeling” is often used incorrectly. One can’t rely only on thoughts to determine predictions of future exercise. It’s the feelings in the body that revel the truth. If one is able to make the proper feeling assessment, the question is answered correctly. The key is to know thyself by knowing how to assess one’s feelings. This is no simple matter as evidenced by people undergoing psychotherapy. It takes lots of practice to learn the difference.Get therapy and improve yourself.
There is an article in the May 17, issue of The Wall Street Journal about treating a mother's depression to help with the child's mental illness. In other words, treat the mom and everyone else benefits. Mom, come join Tony and I on the trail for laughs,exercise, and improved mental health.Just think of family benefits.
Today, Tony and I ran about a 13 to 14 mile loop even though the GPS said otherwise. The trees overhead often get in the way of trail mileage accuracy. I said to Tony, after the run, did this feel like a 10 ½ mile run per GPS? He said “no” and I agreed. During one section on the run, Tony’s in the lead, when all of a sudden a wild turkey jumped up in front of me. It scared me. Have you ever heard of anyone being attacked by a wild turkey? For a moment I thought it was me.
We are close to the finishing point of our run with Tony in front. Tony says something to the effect “we’re done”. That was my opportunity to close the distance between us and pass him with a burst of speed. Even though he attempted. he did not catch me today. Of course he commented that he is going to remember what happened today. Ya,  Ya. This leads to Prescription # 4 from my book: Realize that there is more to life than the accumulation of material things, and that having the biggest toy does not result in happiness.
Good news- I signed a contract to publish my book. Look for it in either book or digital at AMAZON or Barnes &Noble in October. I just heard that AMAZON is selling more digital than paper books. Wow!
