God + Coffee = Happiness?
Earlier this month, two separate studies were published that both tackled depression. In one, data showed that those participants who held spirituality high on their lists of what was important had a lesser chance of becoming depression or having a recurrence of depression. In the other, data showed that higher consumption of caffeinated coffee was associated with lower risk for depression in women (sorry, fellas). We thought this was interesting and thought-provoking. Although this certainly won’t replace the need for other treatments for depression, it does remind us that a prescription does not always have to be the first answer to important problems like depression (or other things, for that matter).
