A feeling of depression engulfs us many times. It is a feeling of disappointment, of self pity, of failure, in an attempt, a lack of self confidence. Depression is exactly what the words suggest – “feeling low”.
Natural Depression Treatment:
Auto suggestion, telling yourself, “I am fine”, I’m capable and I’m good.
Not associating with people who pull you down.
Going out to help someone, who needs it. Even posting a letter for an old neighbour, makes you fell good.
Doing home work with a child, playing football or any sport like kabaddi, keeps your mind positive.
Involving yourself in something creative and confidence boosting.
Do not wallow in the pool of self pity and feel sorry for yourself.
Do not dwell in the past, or in situations, where you failed.
Tell yourself, “I’m going to succeed”.
Start an exercise regime, it creates happy hormones, like serotonin and stimulates a feeling of goodness and optimism. The exercise need not be anything complicated.
A simple brisk walk can work wonders
Support yourself and do not keep blaming yourself for anything that went wrong. Be your own friend, help yourself, when you stumble or fall. Start afresh.
Try to laugh everyday. Spend time playing with children.
Do not make friends whose only pass time is pub hopping. They are not your friends and only compound your problems.
Bring meaning into your life by indulging in positive activities. Be kind, helpful and generous to people.
Simplify your life, find joy in natural and simple activities.
Failure is only a lesson. It is not a permanent situation. Your constant dwelling on it, makes it a permanent fixture. Anyone can fail. Start again at the same problem, from a different angle.
