¿Cómo combatir la depresión?

Depression can strike at any moment, but it commonly happens during major life transitions, like the end of a connection. Symptoms of depression may include persistent feelings of sadness, hopelessness, anxiety about the future, loss of interest in previously enjoyed activities, and changes in sleeping patterns and appetite. It’s challenging to give up something old and adopt another chance in life, but it can be handled.

Toma nota

Para los casos graves de depresión, podría ser necesario adoptar una estrategia farmacéutica, pero para muchos casos más leves, los tratamientos a base de hierbas pueden ser muy útiles para aliviar los síntomas.

  •  Eat well. It’s important to look after the human body, since the health or the body affects the health of the mind. As tempting as it might be to catch junk and comfort foods, try to concentrate your diet about fresh fruits and vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains. Avoid highly processed foods and sugars. If you are fighting with your appetite, consider carrying around substantial protein, wholesome snack foods and eating small amounts every day. If your tendency is to overeat, don’t eat while distracted, i.e. in the front of the TV. Try setting a time at night when you stop eating daily.
  • Take supplements. Start with a great, food based multivitamin. If you don’t eat a whole lot of calcium rich foods, have a calcium supplement. Try fish oil. Its most physical benefits include enhanced brain health. You may take 5 HTP (hydroxytryptophan), a natural antidepressant that’s a precursor to the neurotransmitter serotonin, which can be involved in mood regulation. L-Theanine is often taken together with 5 HTP and is a natural supplement.
  • Implement a workout regimen approved by your physician. Cardiovascular exercise is great for treating depression. What you need is an activity that will elevate your heart rate and keep it up for a time period. This allows for the launch of the feel good chemicals, endorphins, which elevate mood. An extra bonus is better overall physical health and better body image. The perfect is 45 minutes of cardio activity 5 times weekly, but do not avoid exercise if this seems too much for you. Any amount is helpful.
  • Háblalo. Un buen consejero es bastante útil. Contar con una persona profesional e imparcial que te proporcione información y perspectiva sobre ti y tu relación anterior puede ser de gran valor. Podrás procesar mejor la ruptura, además de sacar valiosas lecciones para tu futuro. También es importante tener cerca a los amigos y a la familia cuando se está deprimido, para que le proporcionen apoyo emocional y le ayuden a llenar el tiempo que solía pasar con su cónyuge.
  • Haz algo amable para ti diariamente. Haz una lista de las pequeñas cosas que te gusta hacer. Cada día, elige una cosa de tu lista y hazla por tu cuenta. Cuando hayas agotado esa lista, haz una nueva.
