RADIO PROGRAM NO. 383 - Release from Exhaustion

[The speaker is Harvey Wood. The questioner is Robert McKinnon.]

Questioner: People want to look forward eagerly and joyfully to each new day. But many men and women wake up each morning sighing, "Oh, another day!" And by evening, although they haven't overexerted themselves, they often have to fight extreme weariness. This exhaustion is sometimes referred to as psychological weariness. What do you think is behind it?

Speaker: Many people feel that depression is behind it. Medical studies in this field have concluded that one of the underlying causes of such depression is insecurity. But I think it goes much deeper than that.
