Depression makes oneself lonely and alone. You feel helpless all the time as if your life has come to an end. Lots of meditation and some medical treatment (only if needed ) are not sufficient. You yourself need to motivate and boost yourself to come out of it. Basically, all you need to do is change your behaviour, lifestyle and routine. By following these 7 simple steps you may actually feel better and deal with depression. And trust me, you won’t find much better solutions anywhere else.
How to Deal with Depression :
1) MAKE A DAILY ROUTINE:
Having a routine is very necessary. This will keep you busy and you will not concentrate much on the cause of your depression.
2) HANGOUT WITH THE PEOPLE YOU LOVE:
May it be your family or friends, try to spend more time with them. You will stay happy and enjoy your life ( and that’s what life is actually meant for, isn’t it? )
3) DO WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY:
Play video games, go running, draw , paint, dance , sing, listen music, travel , jump over your best friend or just shout at the top of your voice in a classroom (if that’s practically possible). All you need to do is figure out things you love and do them.
4) LEARN TO SAY NO!
Say no to people to over sympathise you. You actually don’t need it. You’ll get into worst of it. You are big enough to handle your life and situations, isn’t it?. And most of all, self motivation is best. Another thing is people eat a lot in depression, I hope you don’t want to depress your tummy as well.
5) READ MOTIVATIONAL QUOTES:
Yes, that’s right, above all its only you who can get yourself out of depression. So self motivate yourself. Even you have got the same brain as others ( until there is some Einstein around you) . You are capable of everything what others are of, then why something affect your being so much.
6) SLEEP A LOT:
Okay! So you don’t need to sleep whole day long, just give yourself enough sleep to feel fresh and happy whole day. The basic motive of this point is actually not to get your sleep affected because of your depression.
7) TRY NEW THINGS:
Do everything and anything you wish to. It will make you happy. And will definitely increase your personality and profile. Make new friends this will surely help you to deal with depression and to overcome your problems and become gregarious .
At last, the best I can say is:
HOLD UP A MIRROR AND ASK YOURSELF WHAT YOU ARE CAPABLE OF DOING. THEN TAKE THE INITIATIVE, DON’T WAIT FOR SOMEONE TO ASK YOU TO ACT.
