    A healthy thinking-person radiates a healthy physical aura while a person who bores a heavy burden in his mind has a sluggish appearance. A person who has a happy disposition in life looks refreshing, energetic and sharp. A person with negative thoughts, on the other hand, appears jumpy, irritable and overstressed.Mind power means a person should learn to control his mind. Never allow it to control you for it may produce thoughts that can harm you.The way people think is like a habit that can be formed. Form a positive thinking mind to combat depression.The above-mentioned alternative treatments for depression are only a few examples from a long list of things that could be done to lift up the spirit and stop the feeling of depression, but they are among the most important. If alternative treatments are not being effective for you, it is always important to seek professional help.

    This is such b.s. Depression is depression because being 'positive' doesn't work. You can't think yourself out of depression so do not hate yourself if you try and it does not work.

    You can think yourself out of depression, it's called therapy. The concept above is essentially Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) which is the form of therapy that has the most evidence supporting its efficacy in mood disorders.

    for therapy to work, it has to involve emotional processing. CBT did nothing for me.
