How to fight with Depression ?
The first step in getting rid of depression is to recognize the condition as this can be difficult, especially because of physical symptoms masking the emotional symptoms. The first tip is simply to do the things we love doing. We probably already know that these things will help us overcome our depression but that does not make them necessarily easier.
Besides the things that release a whole lot of positive energies within us like exercising, eat healthily, sleeping well, leaving home, meeting people, and not thinking negatively. In depression it is already difficult to get out of bed in the morning, adding more things on the list of actions maybe even more exhausting. It is even a symptom of depression (being tired, hopeless) that makes things difficult. But there is a difference between difficult and impossible.
What is needed is just the will to get out of the depressed state and believe in our ability to heal. A realistic action plan may be just the right thing to do; it involves taking responsibility for our choices. Taking control of our lives, while avoiding to blame our self would help in setting up our healing on the right track.
It’s important to start with small goals and be consistent on our efforts. Even if we feel flat, we surely do have the energy to go out and do a walk around our home or make a phone call to someone you love and make new ones. The most important thing is to push the energy level and internal resources we have, if they are small.
If we suffer from severe depression, the action plan should emphasize on putting more activity into our life. An activity may simply be to take the air for ten minutes, sunbathing rather than staying on the couch, or taking a shower or a drink with a friend. For the ones really motivated a visit to the spa or probably yoga classes will do immense good. After each every break through it’s important to congratulate yourself, every time you do something pat your back, and then build up next days, and continues the growth.
Combined with each other, all these steps will make you feel better and will put you on the road to complete recovery.
