Becoming depressed in an work environment filled with threatening and aggressive people is very common. Statistically, 3 out 4 employees in the US hate their jobs. Is this because people are eating unhealthfully and not performing sufficient exercise or is it because businesses often don't encourage and motivate their employees to continue to improve their performance? From my perspective, it's a little of both...

You're smart to focus on improving your fitness to combat depression. Fit employees are better equipped to handle heavy workloads while staying positive and emotionally stable. Looking back on my career, I can identify a couple experiences where I let my employer and fellow co-workers down because I lost control because I was not fit and healthy. At the time, I blamed them but, in hindsight, I was not mentally and physically prepared each day to cope with the stress because I was eating so terribly.

Raj,

If you feel that your job is getting you down, have you considered talking to a therapist? They can help you learn coping skills and was to destress. Also it is nice to "vent" to someone who has an unbiased opinion. And meeting with a therapist or counciler a couple times a month, or as often as you see fit, they can monitor your progress and see how you are doing.

Bruno is right to, getting your body mentally and physically ready is a big part of it to. It has been shown that exercise can help with depression, especially repetitive movements ie. jogging, walking or an eliptical machine. When I used to run, it was a great destresser for me, I was so focused on my breathing and other things, that my troubles from that day seemed to disappear. At least for hour or so i was out running.

Best of luck!
