A large proportion of the population are struggling with varying degrees of depression and it has become so prevalent in today’s society. We all try and act happy but often that is all it is, acting.
Self- Help: Changes you can make
- Exercise– Whether it be a short walk in the park or a session at the gym, even 30 minutes of exercise a day will lift your mood.
- Mindfullness– Practising mindfulness is a great self-help tip to aid your focus on your feelings and reflect on the good things in your life
- Time with Loved Ones- Spending time with those your care about can ease the effects of depression
- Diet- Changing your diet by drinking more water and eating in a healthier way will make your body feel better, and in turn your mind.
Life Coaching: How can it help?
- One way of improving your mental state is to visit a life coach or therapist for help. Depression often worsens if left unchecked.
- I think it is important not to use the term “depressed ” too casually, because “low mood” is not the same as depression. If you are clinically depressed you may need to take anti-depressants on your GP’s advice. You may find it impossible to leave the house or take care of the house as you normally would.
- If you are unhappy due to daily struggles, burdened by stress, you feel that you can’t see the wood for the tree, be assured that seeking help from a professional will really turn things around for you in a short space of time.
- If you address your issues head on, you will be surprised to learn that with tweaks to your routine and new ideas being offered to you and commitment to change can help you can take your life back.
