5 Super Effective Tips To Kill Depression
Being lonely is a normal part of our everyday lives. We get sad when we fail in our exams, when we're rejected by the person we love, or when someone very close to uspasses away. Depression, however, could be more fatalthan just plain loneliness. It could render life-longconsequences that could ruin your self-esteem, health, and well-being.
Here are some superb tips to conquer the melancholy moodand get the most bliss out of your daily activities.
1) Get Enough Light and Sunshine.
Lack of exposure to sunlight is responsible for the secretion of the hormone melatonin, which could triggera dispirited mood and a lethargic condition.
Melatonin is only produced in the dark. It lowers thebody temperature and makes you feel sluggish. If youare always couped up in your room (with the curtainsclosed), it would be difficult to restrain yourself from staying in bed.
This is the reason why many people are suffering fromdepression much more often in winter than in the otherseasons. It's because the nights are longer.
If you can't afford to get some sunshine, you can always lighten up your room with brighter lights.Have lunch outside the office. Take frequent walksinstead of driving your car over short distances.
2) Get Busy. Get Inspired.
You'll be more likely to overcome any feeling ofdepression if you are too busy to notice it. Live a life full of inspired activities.
Do the things you love. If you're a little short on cash, you could engage in simple stuffs like taking a leisurely stroll in the park, playingsports, reading books, or engaging in any activity that you have passion for and would love to pursue.
Set a goal - a meaningful purpose in life. No matter how difficult or discouraging life can be,remain firm and have an unshakable belief that youare capable of doing anything you desire. With this kind of positive attitude, you will attaina cheerful disposition to beat the blues.
3) Take a Break.
I mean it.
Listen to soothing music. Soak in a nice warm bath. Ask one of your close friends to massage you. Take a break from your stressful workload and spend the day just goofing around. In other words, have fun.
4) Eat Right and Stay Fit.
Avoid foods with lots of sugar, caffeine, or alcohol. Sugar and caffeine may give you abrief moment of energy; but they would later bring about anxiety , tension, and internal problems. Alcohol is a depressant. Many peoplewould drink alcohol to "forget their problems."They're just aggravating their conditions in theprocess.
Exercising regularly is a vital depression busterbecause it allows your body to produce more endorphins than usual. Endorphins are sometimes called "the happy chemicals" because of theirstress-reducing and happiness-inducing properties.
5) Get a Social Life.
No man is an island. Your circle of friends are there to give you moral support. Spending timeand engaging in worthwhile activities with them could give you a very satisfying feeling. Nothing feels better than having group support.
Never underestimate the power of touch. Doesn't it feel so good when someone pats you on the backand gives you words of encouragements during yourmost challenging times? Hug or embrace someonetoday. You'll never know when you have saved another life.
Get intimate. Establish close ties with your family and friends. The love and care expressedby others could tremendously boost your immune system and fend off illnesses. Best of all, you'll live a more secured and happy life.
