Today we talk about the epidemic of depression in the Western world — what causes it, and how it can be solved. We live in the most peaceful, most prosperous time in the history of humanity, and everything seems to be amazing, yet people are increasingly depressed.

To explore this topic, we start with the idea that for 99% of history, humans were hunters-gatherers and evolved to live a very different lifestyle — spending time outdoors and tightly connected to their communities. Now that we live indoors, sitting in front of a computer, not socializing or exercising sufficiently, eating processed food, our modern lifestyle is not in line with our nature, and that is the major factor of the present epidemic of depression.
