Conversation with US Navy Seal, Thom Shea

Conversation with US Navy Seal, Thom Shea

Focus can change your life. When you focus on your life to make it better, it happens. This week I decided to drop some things and expand on others.  The inspiration for this was a conversation I had with a U.S. Navy SEAL,

(Ret.) Senior Chief, Thom Shea.  I have a couple of other podcasts and the one focused on self-improvement was blessed to have him as a guest.

 

Thom is quite accomplished.
* He served 23 years as a U.S. Navy SEAL
* He is the only SEAL in history to endure the infamous “Hell Week” FIVE times, after being knocked out four times due to illness or injury
* He was hand-selected to serve as Officer In Charge of the famed SEAL Sniper course (he’s trained the best of the best; I like to call him “The SEAL behind the SEALs”)
* Bestselling author of “Unbreakable: A Navy SEAL’s Way of Life” and his new release “Three Simple Things: Leading During Chaos”
* Retired with distinguished valor, having earned a Silver Star, Bronze Star with Valor, Army Commendation with Valor and two Combat Action Medals
* He’s trained thousands of people around the world via his company, Unbreakable Leadership

Has something happened in your life recently that has got you down? You going through something? (Most of us are) You drinking, smoking or popping something to help you cope? You watching a lot of porn? (what’s a lot, right?)
You might be depressed.

  • Persistent sad, anxious, or feeling “empty”

Not everyone who is depressed experiences every symptom
We throw ourselves into work, into household projects, we try to stay busy but sometimes, you have to fix you.

Beyond Treatment: Things You Can Do
Here are other tips that may help you or a loved one during treatment for depression:

  1. Try to be active and exercise.
  2. Set realistic goals for yourself.
  3. Try to spend time with other people and confide in a trusted friend or relative.
  4. Try not to isolate yourself, and let others help you.
  5. Expect your mood to improve gradually, not immediately.
  6. Postpone important decisions, such as getting married or divorced, or changing jobs until you feel better.
  7. Discuss decisions with others who know you well and have a more objective view of your situation.
  8. Continue to educate yourself about depression.
