    Depression is a condition in which a person is overwhelmed by everything and not just some wrong thought process that one gets into and it is high time talked about it. Also it does effect ones body as well among other things. It can be a minor depression more like a set back caused due to have lost or not achieved anything or may be a big shock due to which a person might feel they have nothing left with.

    You will be surprised to know that there is seasonal depression as well which is caused when the days are longer. In such cases it is advised to keep one self busy and hence we don’t get time to think about anything that saddens us. But this is not the right answer to the problem.There are so many things that we don’t know. Depression can also be caused by neurotic changes and because of anxiety issues. Doctors say that it can also be attributed to your gene structure but some part is definitely because of the individual’s behavior and his or her perspective.

    Music can be a lot helpful in depression. Studies have shown that in a normal scenario, whatever you listen it tends to connect to you and turn your mood in the same direction. So the next time you feel low, turn up some solace genre and relax. 

    This is a common misconception that medicines help in depression. There is no doubt in the fact that medicines do help. But depression is more of what we are thinking and how we deal with a situation. Medicines can only reduce your anxiety levels some what. But the effect will go sooner or later. What you will be left with is the self control and self motivation to push out the bad thoughts.

    John Green, a very famous and successful writer that we are sure you also love. He has given us some great work in the form of “The Fault in Our Stars” and “Paper Towns” has also come out and talk about his depression and how he coped up with it. In his own words, he says “I take medication daily and have for many years. I also try to exercise a lot, because there’s some evidence that exercise lessens the symptoms of anxiety, and I try to use the strategies that I’ve learned in cognitive behavioral therapy to cope with my illness. But it’s a chronic illness and it hasn’t, like, gone into remission or anything for me. It’s something I live with, something that I’ve integrated into my life. And we all have to integrate stuff into our lives, whether it’s mental illness or physical disability or whatever. There is hope. There is treatment. You are not alone, and while I know the struggle feels at times completely hopeless and futile, there is a far shore for the vast majority of people, and I wish you the best.” Coming out about his anxiety issues must have taken a lot of guts. But this clearly gives a lot of inspiration to those who are caught up in this and are able to find no exit.
