Depression and exercise

Postby desperate788 » Sat May 14, 2022 1:00 pm

What you guys thinking on exercising at home? Like a 30 min walk indoors. I think walking out has its own problems.

I think along with exercise life coaching is the best way to cure yourself from these types of disease. Life coaching is the best way to improve people lives.

There are lots of exercises that you can do at home, not just walking. I think doing anything productive is good for mental health. Richard Taylor had some good thoughts on this subject.

You have to factor in individual differences, such as personality and intelligence. It is not a subject that is settled in psychology.

Individual differences factor in nearly all diseases thats a basic fact. Is individual differences mainly genetics?

Nature and nurture. There is a strong connection between passivity and depression, for those people, simply being productive can counter that. If you are temperamentally creative, not being creative may cause mental health issues. Many psychologists and philosophers have noticed this.

For common sense creativity is a blessing not a curse.

Knowledge gives you power, the power to change and grow and make better decisions. I don't see how that can be depressing.

Yes making a living from doing something creative is very hard, but you can still enjoy the process, therefore it still enhances your life. Creativity is just one trait, some need to socialize more than others, some need to work to have purpose, some need a strong family and relationships, some need security, others prefer variety over stability.

The depressing thing is labelling creativity as a curse and claiming its impossible to make money from it. Actually i dont care about that as far as i have an income. Everybody knows that making money by creativity is very hard, life stories of many artists prove that .

Anything to an extreme can be a curse, being too introverted or extroverted can be a curse. So can being very intelligent, you are going to struggle to relate to the majority of people. Plus he never said impossible, he said "virtually impossible" to make points people often exaggerate.

You twist and distort differing views so you can discard them. It's a common thing people do, it's the result of rigid thinking and too much ego.
