Episode 25: Johann Hari
Spirituality & Depression
With rates of depression and anxiety rising – perhaps skyrocketing during the pandemic – we’re all looking for a fix. But a quick fix doesn’t get to the root of the problem as author Johann Hari details in his book, “Lost Connections: Why You’re Depressed and How to Find Hope.”
Suffering from depression for most of his life, Hari set out to study why so many are struggling and what he came up with, his 9 causes of depression, is spot-on.
This is a topic that’s close to my heart – something I’ve spoken and written about for years and I couldn’t be happier to have this discussion with Johann. We talk about our struggles with depression, habits you can build to lessen the severity when the sadness strikes and how society and government contributes to people’s despair.
