Recalibrate! A 10-Day Exploration of Why We’re More Depressed

Are you struggling to make sense of things? Feeling anxious or depressed about what’s happening in your life or the world?

Are you wondering what the new normal looks like?

Or if we’ll ever slow down enough to have a new normal?

Do you feel like you have almost constant jet lag?

Are you experiencing more than your share of WTF moments?

If you are, you’re not alone.

I have created a 10-day eCourse to explore the Top 10 reasons why we’re more depressed, and what you can do to feel better.

We need new coordinates for the GPS and we need some guidance.

In short, we need to recalibrate.

Please join us for a 10-day eCourse exploration.

Each day you’ll receive an email on a different topic with links to related content that you can chew on.

Top 10 Reasons Why We’re More Depressed Than Ever

Our current state

In her viral TEDx Houston talk, clinical researcher Dr. Brené Brown said, “We are the most in-debt, obese, addicted, and medicated adult cohort in U.S. history.”

Her declaration has been stuck in my head for years.

Clearly, this isn’t working for many – if not most – of us.

I don’t think it’s going to get any better until we dig into what’s making us so miserable.

Having spent a few months thinking about it and interviewing people for The Depression Discussions™: The Conversations Entrepreneurs Need to Have, I have come up with the following Top 10 reasons why we’re more depressed than ever. Continue reading

This Isn’t Working! Top 10 Reasons Why We’re More Depressed Than Ever

In her viral TEDx Houston talk, clinical researcher Dr. Brené Brown said, “We are the most in-debt, obese, addicted, and medicated adult cohort in U.S.history.”

Clearly, this isn’t working for many – if not most – of us.

I don’t think it’s going to get any better until we dig into what’s making us so miserable.

I have spent a few months thinking about it, and interviewing people for The Depression Discussions, and I have come up with the following Top 10 reasons why we’re more depressed than ever.

  1. Change is unsettling, and the rate of change keeps increasing.
  2. Personal white space is critical yet scarce.
  3. Social media is amazing, and also triggering.
  4. Instant gratification kills fulfillment and is numbing.
  5. Employment paradigms have shifted permanently.
  6. Retirement won’t be an option for many.
  7. Smartphones own us and are addictive and isolating.
  8. Loose connections don’t replace personal relationships.
  9. Happiness is the wrong goal.
  10. Busywork is bad – but good work is the gift.

My next major body of work will be around exploring each of these reasons more in depth. I hope you’ll come along with me.
