Is the glass half full? That depends of your state of mind. Depression distorts your perception of everyday life. Some days seem to drag on endlessly yet others fly by in a blink of the eye. Why? How can the day affect your mood? A good night’s sleep leads to a beautiful morning, you get up early, go to work and before you know it…. it’s time to go home. Was it really the day or were you just in a good mood? Your mood affects the way you see the world. Happy thoughts shield you from everyday problems.
