Part Three, Ease Depression…

 

Depression and anxiety are the most diagnosed mental health issue.

Many of us have dealt with depression on a short-term basis. If depression becomes chronic it is well advised to get the help of a professional counselor or medical doctor.

Here are a few ideas to deal with the slumps that depression can cause

Be pro-active in dealing with your depressed mood.

  • Sunlight

It’s recommended that we get 20 minutes of sunlight a day. The sun helps regulate sleep. Helps our bodies produce vitamin D. And just being outdoors helps us feel better. Get outside and feel the sun on your skin. Work on a nice tan too. Wear sunscreen though.

  • Get creative.

Do something with your hands, heart and mind. Create, make, do.

You always wanted to try something. You know what that is. So, do it now. Be a little creative in your life. Learn something new. Do something creative.

  • Be mindful.

Meditate, pray, read thoughtful works of great writers. Look a little deeper at your life and it’s meaning. Think positively about who you are, what you have and where you are going.
