Organizing with Depression - Are you Depressed?

You can't get to sleep but you don't want to get up. You can't seem to concentrate at work and you have no energy to apply yourself. You are becoming less and less organized and slipping futher and further behind in your work. And the strange thing is - you've noticed that you don't really care any more. In fact, you really don't care about very much right now. Even those golf clubs which you used to keep busy every weekend, haven't left the cupboard in months.

You may be suffering from depression. One of the key symptoms is a lack of energy and diminished interest in things that used to be important to you. With the lack of energy comes an inability to organize. Filing, sorting and especially deciding all take emotional energy. An individual suffering from depression doesn't have the energy it takes to focus on some of these tasks and see them through to completion.

If this sounds like you, it is important that you get treatment from a physician or other health care professional. There are many different medications available for the treatment of depression. There are other treatments available as well. Don't let depression deprive you of enjoying the beautiful life you deserve.
