Shake the blues away.
Everyone knows that depression can lead to guilt, sadness, frustration, and in the case of 15-20% of people with depression, suicide. Because we live in a culture that rewards (and often worships) productivity, when a depressed person can't meet the expectations of society, the depression becomes worse and a vicious cycle begins. The goal of Getting Things Done When You're Depressed is to break this cycle. Readers will learn:
How to prepare yourself mentally for working while depressed
How to structure your environment so you can work more easily
How to work with others
How to prevent depression
