COMMENTARY: 5 keys to overcoming depression

Published: Monday, March 24, 2014 at 04:25 PM.

Develop a spiritual peace. Before you jump off the Golden Gate Bridge or hang yourself from a doorknob, try talking to God. Not every day goes our way. Work can be frustrating and people can disappoint us. Problems can break us down. We all need the power and peace that are greater than ourselves as well as our problems.

Get some sleep. A rested mind and body thinks more clearly. Charles Spurgeon was a great minister from England. He once said, "I have so much to do I must go back to bed."

Everybody faces down moments in life. Don't let depression get the best of you.
