When a person feels depressed, clinically or not, the heart is affected. Moods are felt in the heart, physically and intangibly, so that uplifting feelings aid the heart’s restorative abilities and depressed feelings cause the heart to work more frenziedly.
Depression causes the heart to lose control of emotional restraint. Emotional reactions will be exaggerated or inappropriate. The emotional reactions can also be unavailable: the depressed person can’t tap into them, because the effort to access them is too demanding. When emotional reactions cannot be accessed, the depression is overtaking reason and is further forcing the heart to overwork itself.
There are many reasons to overcome depression, and heart health is one of them.
