Are You Really Depressed?
Are you really depressed and if so how do you know? Depression is set on a sliding scale, from first feeling a bit down or melancholy then all the way up to suicide. Suicide is the most extreme which is definitely not healthy. But of course how bad do you have to feel to do something about your depression. Why not get yourself help when you are just feeling a bit low rather than waiting until it is so bad that you have to be on prescription drugs to help you.
Are You A Victim Of Medication Side Effects.
Drugs can only do so much, there is new evidence to suggest that they don’t work on your brain chemistry as was first thought. Could this be a placebo effect? You will also notice that some prescription drugs don’t suit everyone and you may feel you need to find one that suits you. Make sure that the medication is not causing you any undue stress, such as Anxiety. etc… It’s always better to be sure what’s going on. The same way you would check for ingredients in food.
Nature Is The Best Healer.
But what about intervention on self-help before your depression is too bad. Nature is the best healer, also medicine that is very easy to administer. If you’re in a deep depression it may take time to heal, but what about if you recognised the sad feelings and you went into nature for your healing.
Gardening, walking in the country, visiting the seaside, strolling on the beach, sitting by water or a babbling brook, listening to bird calls, cycling, running, hugging trees, climbing, volunteering in parkland or wildlife trusts all these can help heal you. Even take a journey with your mind as you can transport yourself to anywhere, that can offer you the chance to have a break.
Depression takes a lot of negative energy to sustain the negative feeling. No one is suggesting that you can never feel low because sad things happen to us all or all around us. It’s a normal feeling to experience – the main point is that when you are feeling low and becoming more depressed is not to stay there, see it as more of a visit. Depressed is really telling you to have a deep-rest! How often do you get a deep-rest, such as a good sleep at night…
Everything Comes To Pass.
Take stock of your mental health and thinking in a positive way, no matter how difficult things become because everything comes to pass, Even the wildest seas will become still if left alone, as muddy waters will eventually come clear.
7 Easy & Useful Tips.
#1 My tip is to notice your first signs of low feelings that you can instantly do something about it.
#2 Remember no one knows you better than you, so you are the first person that can start the process of helping yourself.
#3 Only visit your low feeling if you have to, but just don’t stay there, because this is what other people do who are on lots of medication for the never-ending cycle of their depression.
#4 Look up at the sky and find the many shapes and patterns in the clouds (of course only when safe to do so).
#5 Start to like yourself once more as most people hate themselves. You do have love inside you or you wouldn’t be able to love anything, such as puppies, kittens, food, music, reading and so on. Now start to include you in this love.
#6 Depression is a mental way of making you feel heavy, this can make you walk slow and hunched over. Stand tall, also move faster as well as feeling the ground beneath your feet when you walk.
#7 Think if your diet, medication or even people around you are causing you to feel depressed. Remember that you can always do something to help improve your life.
#8 Bonus tip. Stop acting depressed, this means any actor that plays a convincing performance, you can do the same in your life. Start acting today on how you want to be seen and the feelings will follow. It may not always be easy, but give it ago-you maybe suprised…
