How To Fight Those Feelings of Depression


Everyone goes through the doldrums at one time or another. However, you have to know the difference between just the regular blues and major depression. Sometimes what starts out to be a minor case of the blues can end up dragging you down so much that it results in depression. When you down, it is important that you do not ignore those feelings. Sometimes those feelings will not just go away on their own. You have to do something for yourself to bounce back. This article will give you some advice about that.


When you are not in a good mood, give yourself some time alone to reflect. What is bothering you? Did something happen recently that caused you to feel depressed? Get a piece of paper and write down the possible causes of your sad feelings. If you have been feeling that way for a while, it is time to take a serious look at the possible causes.



After you have written your list, look at each item to see if you can do anything about it. Can you change the situation in any way? Can get help in solving the problem? Write down some solutions that you can take. Writing things down is actually very therapeutic for you. Think of it as putting down your weight and moving on. Once you write something down, you do not have to carry it in your head any longer. You will only deal with it when you are ready.



Give yourself the opportunity to feel happier. Go outside and enjoy a walk in the park. Look at the nature around you. If you have a pet, spend some time with it. People say that pets can de-stress a person and bring about a calm feeling. You will be warmed by the affection from your pet.



Go and get some exercise. Studies have shown that exercising helps your body release endorphins, the chemical in your brain that makes you feel good. This is why runners have a euphoric feeling after a good run. This positive chemical is coursing through their brain, making them feel like they are at the top of the world. You can get a sense of that feeling if you go out for a bike ride or work on some weights. Find a physical activity that you enjoy. You not only will feel better, but you will get in good shape.



Eat a properly balanced diet. Foods have an effect on how you feel. Junk food may give you a brief moment of pleasure when you are eating it, but it will leave your body feeling tired and your brain exhausted because they are not nourished properly. Certain foods have elements that make you feel good, like chocolate.



As you can see, there are things that you can do to get yourself out of the doldrums. Do not ignore those feelings. Nip those negative feelings in the bud before they turn into something more serious.
