Overcome depression

Sometimes we feel that nothing is going in the way it should be and sometimes we blame our self for every little thing that went wrong with us. Wherever there is light, there would be a shadow of a body which would be right behind it. Though being alone and solving our problems by ourselves is helpful sometimes but making this a habit may turn a person into a complete introvert. If you too feel alone and depressed then following things will surely help you to get out of it.

  • Take a nap in the afternoon.

If you work in office, plug in your earphones, play your favorite track, close your eyes, stretch back and relax for a while (but make sure that your boss is not on inspection).

  • Don’t isolate yourself socially.

depressionTry to connect with people around you. Don’t be or pretend to be an introvert. Talk to those people with whom you are comfortable with. Share your thoughts, views and ask for their opinion if you get struck somewhere. Instead of being active on social media, be active in the real world. Having too many friends is great but having a friend who cares about you and is there to help you whenever you need is important. Choose friends wisely because your energy level depends upon the energy of people around you.

  • Develop a hobby.

  • Talk to your parents.

  • Listen to music.

  • Don’t blame yourself for everything.

depressionWe human beings do mistakes every time. Whether you take an example of Einstein, Newton or even the greatest human ever born (beside me (that’s a joke (never mind))), no one is perfect. Don’t blame yourself for things you did with good intentions but they turned to be bad for someone. Think hundred times before you act and then never think about it for a single moment after doing it.

  • Leave the habit of sleeping late night.

Believe it or not late night sleeping causes a lot of mental stress and pressure. Quit the habit of using your phones or laptops for late night. Create your timetable wisely and get a proper sleep of 8 hours a day. Along with this drink plenty of water to keep yourself hydrated.
