7 Tips to Overcome Depression

7-Tips-to-Overcome-DepressionThe key to overcome depression is to start small and build from there. Feeling better takes a bit of time, but you can get there if you make positive choices for yourself each day. Take things one at a time and reward yourself on each accomplishment. The steps may seem small but they’ll add up quickly. Here are a few tips to help you.

  1. Propagate Supportive Relationships: Though the very nature of depression is to hole up in your own shell and be alone most of the time, it can be quite helpful to go out and be around people. It can be beneficial to share your problems with someone you trust
  2. Join a depression support group: It can help your condition if you join a support group, where you get to talk to and share your troubles with people who are going through the same thing as you. It helps discard the feeling of isolation from the patient’s mind
  3. Go out for walks: Sitting in your room, at home, with no change of surroundings can often depress a person even more than he/she already is. Lack of exposure to sunlight can worsen the depression, not to mention the deficiencies you may develop. Going out for a walk, fresh air and the change in surroundingshelps the patient feel better
  4. Sleep for at least eight hours a day: Little to no sleep often aggravates the condition and makes the person irritable. Sleeping for more hours a day can have an adverse effect, reducing annoyance in the patient
  5. Surround yourself with positive thoughts and people: People with a positive outlook on life, or optimists, deal with troubles without complaining as much as a pessimist would. When one is depressed, it is essential to look at the bright side of things, even though it may seem very hard at the time
  6. Do things you enjoy: Do things that interest you, or things you used to find interesting. It may be hard to find pleasure in anything at that point of time, but take up something you used to enjoy – such as a sport, music or art, or reading books. Go out with your friends, party or go to the park. You may surprisingly find yourself feeling better and having fun once you do one of these things
  7. Eat right: Eat the right kind of food, in the right proportions. Eat regularly and don’t skip meals. Hunger can also irritate a person and make one cranky. Following a proper diet and good eating habits help one feel better
