Are You Struggling With Depression?

Do you have a persistent low mood, lack of energy, and deep emotions of despair that won’t go away? Do you have suicidal thoughts or sadness and don’t know where to turn?

Everyone experiences sadness and grief at some point in their lives. Depending on the circumstances, these sensations normally pass in a few days or weeks. Deep melancholy, on the other hand, that lasts for weeks or months and interferes with your capacity to function could be an indication of depression.

Everyone is affected differently by depression, and symptoms can range from mild to severe. It’s very natural to have poor moods, low energy, and depression from time to time. However, if you are experiencing symptoms that are interfering with your daily life and you are unable to concentrate or focus on your daily chores, you may be suffering from clinical depression. Dr. Lisa Dahlgren offers effective, nature-based coaching that can help alleviate symptoms.

How Can Nature-Based Coaching Help With Depression? 

Humans are designed in such a way that our thoughts, bodies, and psyches are all perfectly adapted to resonate with nature. However, what was once a vessel that maintained, healed, and taught us has become increasingly remote. Few among us can now confidently travel in both this inner and outer wilderness. The beauty of a sunrise, the excitement of a brewing storm, the challenge of crossing an icy creek—few among us can now travel confidently in both these worlds and know exactly how deep a connection to our earth is essential for our wholeness.

Being in nature enhances mood and immunological function, as well as the creative process and energy levels. It also brings new insights. Imagine how powerful it is to combine the benefits of being in nature with expert instruction, tried-and-true techniques, compassionate support, and earth-based wisdom.
