When you feel depressed, what are the tricks you use to kick yourself out of the dumps?
Music - and not the sad song, somebody done me wrong kind. I also get out of the house. When youi are down in the dumps, 4 walls can make you feel even worse.
I think about the people around the world who are less fortunate then me, and what they are going through, and I try to count my blessings!
change the environment. feeling depressed is a state of mind. so its the best way that you change the topic at your mind. talk to your friends listen to your favorite music in short start something that you know lifts your mood.
you can try this yog exercise as well and let me know how does it work for you . its quite effective .
1. be attentive to your breath.
2. observe how deep you are inhaling. upto throat/ heart/ navel or deeper.
3. in most cases after this observation there will be a deep inhalation. automatic response of the body that want to change .
4. now try deeper and slower breathing .
Music! I enjoy instrumental music, particularly baroque music. I have a baroque CD in my disc holder all day long and when I start to feel depressed I press the play button. That’s what works for me. That and prayer.
Getting outside in the sun for 15 or 20 minutes helps, exercise, and talking with friends or family all work for me.
I put my favourite music on and look at all the photo's of my kids when they were little.It never fails to cheer me up.
Being around people who care about me and love me, like family and friends usually helps.
I go out and take a long drive to clear my head. This usually works. But if not, then I call a friend whom I know would be sympathetic and understanding of my problems.
All good points.
Getting your mind off whatever has you has you down and picking yourself back up so that you can tackle the issue is key.
Go do an activity that gets you out of your head. Play sports, guitar, read, blog or something that requires concentration. I find running or walking doesn't require enough attention allows you to keep dwelling on whatever is bothering you.
Spending time with other people generally helps to cheer a person up.
Don't forget to eat some chocolate to get those endorphins going. ...I'll take any excuse to get some chocolate.
It happened tonight. First, I spent time in nature (at the beach, in my case, I'm lucky to live near the ocean). That wasn't enough. So I meditated, breathing, relaxing, balancing my energy. That wasn't enough. So I hopped some hubs, and - by random chance or a gift of the Divine - came across some music that resonated with my sadness. I kept hopping hubs, expressing lots of gratitude. Now, I'm doing just great.
So, bring in good energy all these ways - and then share it with others!
I like to watch comedies or funny videos on youtube. But I'm hardly ever sad, and when I am it doesn't last too long.
Go exercise for 20-30 minutes. It's the best way to get rid of stress and depression. The better question should be, when you feel depressed, how do you motivate yourself to go exercise? I don't have an answer to that one.
Prayer and laughter. I let all my tears and anguish out and then plop down in front of something really funny to get me smiling again.
It helps to have a hot bath have some tea all so breathing, relaxing that is if you can. I have a hard time relaxing
