How to overcome Depression (Part 1)


Depression definition: severe, typically prolonged, feelings of despondency and dejection.

Depression can vary in degrees. For the first half of this article, we will look at ways to help with less severe depression.

You may feel like you cannot be bothered to do anything but watch TV , surf the net or sleep. There are a few things that can help

Choose to make right choices even when you do not feel like it, this is vital. You can start small:

  1. Pushing yourself to think positively, this may sound artificial, but eventually it will makes sense, you can cultivate a positive attitude by deciding to highlight any big or small part of your life, which is the best start to ‘feeling better’.

  2. Talking to someone is always great , as it allows you to let your problem out, just simply talking helps to relieve stress and feel like you’re not alone.

  3. Looking after your health , by eating healthily, drinking a lot of water and exercising regularly. This will improve your outlook on life as well as your physical condition.

  4. Dressing good everyday helps you to feel positive about yourself.

  5. Trying to help other people will help you to take your mind off yourself, and you will feel good making a positive and useful impact  to someone else’s life.

  6. Being productive everyday; you can plan a positive future by setting short and long term goals, for instance someone who is unemployed may set long term goals to getting a job, but must set concrete tasks to do so.
