PostSubject: 5 tips to decrease depression without medication!   Mon Dec 20, 2010 11:27 pm

Depression is one of the most widespread mental sickness in which a person experiences deep, regular sadness and less interest in nearly all activities.
At least 8 percent of adults in the United States experience serious depression at some point during their lives and estimated range as high as 17 percent.

People with depression often have feelings of anguish, hopelessness, and irrelevance, as well as thoughts of committing suicide.

Depressive personality behavior includes pessimism, self-criticism, gloominess, nervousness, extreme skepticism and criticism of others.

Stressful experiences may include divorce, the loss of a job and pregnancy, loneliness, economic strain, early childhood trauma, Alcohol or drug abuse.



Tip #1: Healthy habits in daily life



Depression can be controlled simply by exercise, nourishing diet, talk to a supportive friend, spend some time in natural environment, read a good book, watch a sitcom or funny movie, listen to music and enjoy a company of pet.

Take a long drive regularly and do investigate the root cause of depression.

Tip #2: Cultivating supportive relationships
Ask for moral support from friends and family who are supportive and available to help you through thick and thin. Do locate people around you who are suffering with depression. Try to learn from their and experiences and share your experience. Be positive and optimistic and get courage by listening sorrows of other and evaluate the intensity of your depression. Talk loudly and confidently with people and share your worldview. Help poor and deserving people and make a spiritual contact with Sufi Saints.

Tip #3: Reducing stress
Be patient! This is the most important point to remember. Depression can hurt relationships and affect everyday activity. It takes patience and time to help a depressed person. A depressed person may experience mood swings and may feel like giving up. Stay focused and don’t give up.

Laugh! Do this every day and all night long if you feel like it. Go to bed happy and get out of bed if you are unhappy.

Tip #4: Changing negative thinking
Always Keep in mind you have two choices in life. You can spend the next five minutes being happy, or the next five minutes being sad. Whether happy or sad, you are using the same amount of energy and liveliness in those five minutes. The option you make could revolutionize your life forever. Spend time doing the things you enjoy and take benefit from it, and stay away from doing things you don't. Go out and meet with people you like, and stay away from people you don't. Live every minute like it's your last.

Tip #5: Psychotherapy

“Talk therapy” is used alone for treatment of depression. It generates no physiological side effects. Depending on the severity of the depression, treatment can take a few weeks or considerably longer. However, in many cases, significant improvement can be made in 10 to 15 sessions. Consult with therapist, psychologist or psychiatrist.

I have to admit, I have had a bout of depression recently...still working through it. I never knew just how it affects your life, your every moment.
Its tough to keep your head up and keep your mind headed in the right direction.
I can honestly say, had it not been for a best friend (wink wink...you know who you are....) I don't think I would be feeling as if there were hope. She has listened to me countless nights and did one thing no one else in my life could do....understand me, understand where I was coming from. She is one of my best supports.
I felt like my very being was screaming for someone to listen, to help...and she is the only one that heard.
Just knowing someone is there and understands you makes such a difference. You begin to feel like something is wrong with you, and that its wrong for you to feel what you feel, you need someone to tell you its okay to feel badly, to feel helpless....and then give you the encouragement to crawl out of that hole that you fell into.

We all need a lil extra help sometimes, god only knows im my own worst enemy for hiding my feelings and not asking for help, but i certainly will talk or ramble because i know that works for sure Wink

Oh my gracious I could not have found this thread at a better time. I was cleaning today and found my journal, imagine my surprise when I opened it and it was last dated Jan 7th 2010!!! I couldnt believe it. I started reading throughout and was amazed at some of the things that have improved and just as frustrated with the things that have not. No need to go into details but depression and anxiety is the bane of my existence.

Maddie, its funny how we find things are the most opportune moments, isn't it?

A fellow that I grew up with (31 years old), only one year older than me was in a car accident this past week. Its got me a bit rattled. Its scary to allow yourself to think of those that leave this world that are your age. It makes you realize how precious each moment is.

You are so right about how funny it is that things find a way into our lives at the most opportune moments. A wise person is one who knows how precious each moment is and enjoys the moment, not the past not the future... being in the "now" is a good thing
