Comment faire face à la dépression ?

Therapy and medication are two famous approaches to treat depression, but you may be surprised to find out about a few basic procedures that can give you a lift without involving an expert. Try at least one of these natural techniques to find relief from depression symptoms whenever you want it. It might appear too simple to be true, but only a brisk walk a few times around the block can do lots of positive things for your mood.

Distraction factor

It can be a fantastic way to distract yourself from the depression as well as the things that trigger it. When you end up moving, you’re very likely to have a little distance from the surroundings where you’re feeling low. The planet also looks a bit different once you’re whizzing by it at a faster pace. When your blood begins to pump and your breath quickens, it becomes tougher to ruminate and concentrate on specific things in mind. If you must pay more attention to your walking course and maintaining your balance, your mind will not have the capacity to also concentrate on your negative thoughts or feelings.

Malgré ce que les hommes et les femmes occupés tentent de faire, ils ne parviennent pas à suivre deux choses à la fois, car l'esprit ne peut tout simplement pas le faire. Il suffit parfois d'une petite perturbation dans vos pensées pour interrompre l'élan d'une humeur morose. En outre, il est largement admis que l'exercice physique, même en petite quantité, libère dans le corps des composés naturels de bien-être appelés endorphines.

Prenez note

Don’t worry if you do not write as a hobby or to your work. You won’t be sending this written workout to anybody to judge. Imagine your melancholy as some sort of monster or being that has a life of its own. Consider your feelings, your thoughts, the actions you choose or avoid, and your whole demeanor when you’re depressed. When you have had some time to let this sink in, compose your letter. This may be directly to your depression, or you could write to a loved one about it.

N'oubliez pas qu'il ne s'agit pas d'une lettre destinée à être lue par tout le monde et que vous pouvez donc être libre de vos propos. Dites à votre mélancolie ce que vous en pensez, ou expliquez-la à un autre individu. Écrivez simplement ce qui ressort de votre expression normale. Ne portez aucun jugement sur le fait que votre écriture soit bonne ou mauvaise. Les gens sont souvent tellement envahis par leur mélancolie qu'elle semble faire partie d'eux-mêmes. Après avoir écrit, vous vous sentirez peut-être plus à même de reprendre votre vie en main. Cette technique puissante, parfois utilisée dans le cadre de consultations sur la dépression, peut vous apporter une nouvelle compréhension des raisons et de l'épaisseur de votre maladie.

Conclusion

When you are depressed, maybe the last thing you would consider is going out of your way for somebody else. After all, you are the one hurting and coping with daily misery. Remember the way your mind can’t concentrate on two things at once? This comes into play when you do something for others. Step into another person’s shoes for a minute and see what could make their day better. Is there something considerate you may say? Could you provide help with a job they should finish? Is there something sort you may do that this individual would truly appreciate? If just for a minute, you have focused on somebody else more than yourself. Doing so can bring a surprising quantity of meaning and satisfaction in your life. It’s a really efficient way to distract yourself from the depression when creating something positive in your life.
