Life as a Millennial

Low Mood

We all have periods when our mood is low, and we’re feeling sad or unhappy about life. These feelings usually pass over time and we get back to being ourselves.

Depression is a low mood that lasts for a long time and affects your daily life. The feeling of depression is deeper, longer-lasting and more unpleasant than the short periods of unhappiness that everyone experiences occasionally.

Anyone can get low, but someone is said to be suffering from depression (or depressed) when these feelings don’t go away quickly or become so bad they interfere with their everyday life.
