how to escape depression

Updated on October 23, 2013

I want to share with you something that I learned from a book I have read.The book contains health information.One part of the book details the way out of depression and I would like to write what I have learned from it.Some ideas also came from health shows on TV which discussed depression.


what is depression?

-Is a natural feeling which a person feels dejection.For example,after a death of a love one or breakup with your girlfriend or boyfriend.It only lasts for days.But there is a kind of depression that is morbid and need psychological attention.This kind of depression is long-term with unhealthy excessive sadness,inability to concentrate,loss of motivation and a sense of failure.Other symptoms are eating too much or less in appetite,always sleeping or vigilant and very much afraid.

how to escape depression?

Accept that depression really happens to us.It is a reality that everyone should overcome.Accept yourself what you are presently.Do not waste your time wishing you had the old vigor and enthusiasm,but rather try to understand the causes and find a way how to tackle positively such certain depression.Always bare in mind that there is always a solution in every problem.

Welcome depression as a benefit to make you invulnerable and a good tackler.You experienced it not to make you dispirited but it is there to train you how to handle it properly if another such will come.

Stop examining about yourself.Although you need to recognize your feelings and causes of your depression,it's not good to just dwell on them.Stop your isolation,go outside in a meaningful and hopeful spirit.Learn to see the beauties of nature.Exercise your body,smell the fresh air and expose yourself under the sun for a short time-these can help you lift your spirit.

Mingle with your friends and relatives.No man is an island.We all need people to be with us.They are the great help in our day-to-day living and recovery.They are here to encourage us to live in a hopeful life.

Be productive.For example,put up a business-this thing can surely help you to forget your depression and realize that you can be again what you were before in a realistic way and that depression is just a solvable falsely formidable affliction.

We all have purposes in life.Have a purpose.This can really help you to motivate yourself in moving on with your life.You have to find out what is that special mission uniquely designed by God for you so that after all,you will become somebody that is strong,remunerative and beneficial.

      Good article on depression. I recently finished a course on Mental Health and Stigma in the workplace sponsored by our labour union.

      During the course of our workshop I was made aware of the dangers of depression, the workplace stigma and duty to accommodate by Union stewards and Manangement. One of the best method I learned about helping people avoid depression is to remind anyone facing depression about the HALT method:

      H - Never be too Hungry.

      A - Never be too Angry.

      L - Never be too Lonely.

      T - Never be too Tired.

      I hope I can find time to write about this topic one day. Meanwhile, I salute you for bringing this to the fore.

      God should be the center of our lives, so that depression will have no room to ruin our dispositions.

      God is with us through friends and other positive aspects that make us stand our.

      Amid the trials and tribulations we face in this world, being alive is a gift. We are born in this world with a purpose; so we must utilize that given opportunity and make ourselves winners in our own right. ^-^

      Thank you for sharing this information. These are all great ways of battling depression. Standard treatment, however, is needed for severe depression. These examples still serve as great compliments to standard treatment.

      nice article denden. Indeed one should accept as one is. Any weakness once one accepts it as one's part and understands it, actually becomes a strength.
