Dance Therapy for Dealing with Depression

Dance therapy has been proven by several studies to be beneficial for the management of depression.

One such study was published in The Arts in Psychotherapy journal (2007) and it revealed that dance therapy was beneficial for persons with symptoms of depression.


Dance Therapy Activity

Schedule time each week to engage in a rhythmic movement activity that you enjoy

This can be traditional dances like ballroom dancing or more modern forms of dancing because what matters is not the type of dancing but rather that you express your feelings as you move. 

Ensure that you also include jumping movements since studies have shown that persons with depression have lower levels of vertical movements.

The Bible can teach us the following principle of how to cope with depression:


Pray

Prayer is the 1st principle of Christian Depression Treatment.

James 5:13 tells us to pray if we are suffering. Therefore, cry out to God in prayer if you are suffering from depression because God promises that if You call on Him, He will answer you and He will be with you in trouble and He will deliver you. (Psalm 91:15)

Emulate Jonah because when depression engulfed him, for he said, “When my soul fainted within me, I remembered you God and my prayer went up to You in Your holy Temple.” (Jonah 2:7)

Jeremiah also called out to God when he was inside the ditch of depression and God heard his voice from deep inside the ditch and delivered him. (Lamentations 3:52-56)

Therefore, regardless of how deep you have fallen into the pit of depression, cry out to God because He will listen to your prayers and help you climb or crawl out of it. God can also command the whale of depressing circumstances that has swallowed you to release you just as He commanded the whale that had swallowed Jonah to release him when he prayed. So pray for yourself whenever you begin to feel blue. 
Depression treatment prayer from the Bible

The following is a simple sample prayer you can pray to help you overcome depression:
Save me O my God!
For problems have come up to my neck.
I am sinking in deep depression,
I am in deep trouble and problems overwhelm me.
I am tired of crying and my prayer is to You.
O Lord, in the multitude of Your mercy hear me.
Deliver me from this ditch of depression and do not let me sink in it.
Deliver me from those who hate me and out of these deep troubles.
Do not let problems overwhelm me and do not let depression swallow me up. 
(Adapted from Psalm 69)

Dealing with Depression Holistically


Devotional: Stewardship for one silver coin

Devotional: Stewardship for one silver coin


Which woman having 10 silver coins if she loses one coin does not light a lamp, sweep the house and look carefully until she finds it? (Luke 15:8)



Jesus used this parable to teach about repentance of sinners but it can also be useful for teaching us about stewardship. This can be stewardship of people in your Christian ministry or even stewardship of the material things that God has given you.

Therefore if God has given you 10 assets, and you lose one of them like this woman, understand that you have to work hard to recover that asset. This is because this lady lit a lamp, swept the house and looked carefully until she found what she had lost. 

So do not write off your loss by saying that you have 9 other assets and you do not need to worry about that one that is lost. 

Emulate David because he never wrote off a lamb when it was taken by a wild animal because he testified to King Saul and said, "When a lion or a bear came and took a lamb from the flock, I went after it, struck it and delivered the lamb from its mouth." (1 Kings 17:34-35) This shows us that David took care of the lambs and fought for them just as he would probably have done if the wild animals had taken a large ram. Therefore do not let the enemy take anything that God has put under your care. 

If the enemy has taken some of the assets that God has given you, begin this process of recovering them by lighting your lamp. To do this, read your Bible because the Word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path. (Psalm 119:105) 

Then, ask God to help you sweep anything out of your life that is making you lose your assets to the enemy.

Finally, ask Him in prayer to show you where you should look to find your missing asset because we are told, Ask and it shall be given. Seek and you shall find. Knock and it shall be opened. (Matthew 7:7)


Prayer
Heavenly Father, I ask You in the name of Jesus to help me recover the assets that you have committed to me and that I have lost. Father God show me what I need to clean and remove from my life so that I stop losing things to the enemy. Help me to also search in the right places so that I can find my lost assets.In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
