This article shares with you 5 PROVEN Tips on How-To overcome your depression so you
can live a happy and fulfilling life.
Are you lonely?
Did you know that being lonely is a normal part of our everyday lives. Let’s face it, we’ve all been there.
We get depressed when we fail our exams when we are rejected by the person we love,
or when someone very close to us passes away.
That’s just part of life.
But, depression, however, can be more fatal than just plain loneliness. It could render
Life-Long consequences that could ruin your Self-Esteem, Health, and Well-Being in the
Well, today is your lucky day because I’m going to share with you some great tips to help you conquer the ‘Melancholy Mood’ so you can get the MOST bliss out of your daily activities.
So, with that said, let’s go to Tip #1.
Tip #1. Do you get enough Light and Sunshine?
Did you know that lack of exposure to sunlight is responsible for the secretion of the
hormone called Melatonin, which could trigger a dispirited mood and/or a lethargic condition?
Melatonin is only produced in the dark. What it does is it lowers the body temperature and
makes you feel sluggish.
So, if you are always cooped up in your room (with the curtains closed), it would be difficult
to restrain yourself from staying in bed.
This is the reason why many people suffer from depression much more often in winter than
in the other seasons.
It’s simply because the nights are longer.
If you can’t afford to get some sunshine, you can always lighten up your room with brighter
lights to help offset the darkness.
You could go have lunch outside the office for a change and take frequent walks in the early afternoon instead of driving your car over short distances.
The choices are endless. It’s really up to you.
Tip #2. Keep Busy and Get Inspired.
You’ll be more likely to overcome any feeling of depression if you keep your mind busy doing
the activities you like doing the most.
Do the things you love.
If you’re a little short on cash, you could engage in simple stuff like taking a stroll in the park, playing sports, reading books, or engaging in any activity that you have a passion for and would love to pursue.
Also, set a Goal.
No matter how difficult or discouraging life can be, remain firm and have an unshakable
the belief that you are capable of doing anything you desire.
With this kind of positive attitude, you will attain a cheerful disposition to beat the blues.
Tip #3. Take a Break. Sit back and Relax.
I mean it. Listen to some soothing music you like. Soak in a nice warm bath. Simply take a break from your stressful workload and spend the day just goofing around doing the things you love.
In other words, go have fun. Life’s too short as it is.
Tip #4. Maintain a healthy diet and Stay Fit.
Avoid foods with lots of Sugar, Caffeine, or Alcohol. Sugar and caffeine may give you a brief moment of energy, but they will later bring about Anxiety, Tension, and Internal problems.
Alcohol on the other hand is a depressant. Many people would drink alcohol to simply “forget their problems.”
All they’re doing is aggravating their conditions in the process.
Also, did you know that exercising regularly is a vital depression buster?
Why do you ask?
Simply because it allows your body to produce more Endorphins than usual.
Endorphins are sometimes called “the happy chemicals” because of their Stress-Reducing
and Happiness-Inducing properties.
Tip #5. Get a Social Life outside of work.
No man is an island. Your inner circle of friends is there to give you moral support.
Spending time and engaging in worthwhile activities with them could give you a very
And we all know nothing feels better than having group support.
And never underestimate the power of Touch.
What I mean is doesn’t it feel so good when someone pats you on the back and gives you
words of encouragement during your most challenging times?
Hug or embrace someone today.
Establish close ties with your family and friends.
The love and care expressed by others could tremendously boost your immune system and
fend off illnesses.
Best of all, you’ll live a more secure and happy life.
Now go give those 5 Tips a try and see how they pan out for you.
5 Quick Ways To Ease Stress, Depression & Anxiety
No ceremony with this article, let’s go straight into five quick ways that will help you find relief from stress, depression and anxiety.
1. Take regular breaks from the firing line.
Working hard without regular breaks is a great way to build up stress and tension. Make sure you have at least one 15-minute break in the morning and one in the afternoon as well as at least 20 minutes for lunch. If possible, eat lunch away from your workstation.
Equally, if you have a lot to deal with in your life right now, taking a day, or a weekend elsewhere – longer if you can – to get some breathing space will really help. Even just a day away from the firing line will enable you to get some distance from the problems and help you to gather your thoughts.
2. Regular exercise can help relieve stress, depression and anxiety.
Exercise releases endorphins into your system and will give you a natural boost. It will also provide you with a break from brooding and dwelling on problems and troubles – but only if you perform the right kind of exercises.
Exercises that allow you to brood (weight lifting, jogging, treadmills) and perform exercises that require your full concentration. Competitive sports such as squash, tennis, badminton and circuit training are all excellent examples.
It is important that you do not brood when you exercise because although you will be benefiting physically, you are still stressing yourself mentally and the stress, depression and anxiety will worsen.
3. Stop beating yourself up.
Self-deprecation is a huge part of stress, depression and anxiety. Each time you beat up on yourself, you will erode confidence and self-esteem.
Never tell yourself you’re useless, worthless, stupid, hopeless, boring, ugly, and a loser.
Never convince yourself that other people hate you, that others find you difficult to be around and that you’re better off being alone.
You would never deem it acceptable to say such things to other people and you must deem it equally unacceptable to say them to yourself.
These words and phrases are powerful and they will hurt you.
Accept you’re not perfect and that you make mistakes – just like everybody else does – and cut yourself some slack. From this day forward, make a pact with me to never indulge self-deprecation ever again. IT IS UNACCEPTABLE.
4. Isolation is another problem experienced by stress, depression and anxiety sufferers.
OK, there will be times when you just want your own company. During such times, you can brood over and over again on problems and events and beat yourself up for hours on end. Not good. Instead, use isolation more positively.
Occupy your mind by tackling a jigsaw puzzle, a logic problem, a crossword, read a book or perform a hobby such as painting, playing a musical instrument or whatever it is you have an interest in. In this way, isolation will help you to grow instead of causing you further pain.
5. Television, radio and newspapers can all supply you with a daily hit of negativity and help
lower your mood.
In the main, they concentrate on the negative side of life: crime, corruption, war, scandal and natural disasters and can give you a distorted view of reality. Not to mention the amount of image manipulation they subject you to.
Give yourself a break from this negative drip feed and avoid them completely for one week. You may find, like I have, that they have no place in your life after that. Trust me, you won’t miss them.
That’s five, quick tips for you to help fight stress, depression and anxiety. Please give them a
try, they’ll all help to boost your mood levels very quickly indeed.
