10 remedies to win over depression.

Life says ,depression kills. Depression whispers , i nest inside your mind when it is filled with voyage of sadness and emptiness . I garden your grief more and more everyday and water your negative thought abundantly when you embrace me tighter deep inside your mind. Gradually i won your land of mind and life fades away.

Depression actually is an unwanted guest of our mind , once it is cultivated in our agony , it drives us to the valley of death slowly.

Depression has a different quality than the normal range of sadness that you may feel throughout the day. When you are depressed you do not feel like being with anybody. You either sleep more than usual or you can hardly sleep at all. Similarly, your appetite is either nonexistent or increases dramatically. Your energy level goes way down and you have a feeling of hopelessness about life. As difficult as it may be it is important to get out of the house and get some help. You are not alone.

Luckily, there are ways to punch holes in the curtain of darkness.

Tip 1

Taking the first step is always the hardest. But going for a walk or getting up and dancing to your favorite music, for example, is something you can do right now. And it can substantially boost your mood and energy for several hours.

The recovery step into action, such as preparing a mood-boosting meal or arranging to meet an old friend, by taking this following small but positive steps day by day, you’ll soon lift the heavy fog of depression and find yourself feeling happier, healthier and more hopeful again.

Tip 2

Getting support plays an essential role in overcoming depression.When you’re depressed, the tendency is to withdraw and isolate so that connecting to even close family members and friends can be tough.

You may feel too exhausted to talk, ashamed at your situation, or guilty for neglecting certain relationships. But this is just the depression talking. Staying connected to other people and taking part in social activities will make a world of difference in your mood and outlook. Reaching out is not a sign of weakness and it won’t mean you’re a burden to others. Your loved ones care about you and want to help. And if you don’t feel that you have anyone to turn to, it’s never too late to build new friendships and improve your support network.

Tip 3

Look for support from people who make you feel safe and cared for. 

The person you talk to doesn’t have to be able to fix you; they just need to be a good listener, someone who’ll listen attentively and compassionately without being distracted or judging you.

Tip 4

In order to overcome depression, you have to do things that relax and energize you. Pick up a former hobby or a sport you used to like. Express yourself creatively through music, art, or writing.You might be surprised at how much better you feel as you make time for fun activities.

Tip 5

A daily relaxation practice can help relieve symptoms of depression, reduce stress, and boost feelings of joy and well-being. Try yoga, deep breathing, progressive muscle relaxation, or meditation.

Tip 6

Deficiencies in B vitamins such as folic acid and B-12 can trigger depression. To get more, take a B-complex vitamin supplement or eat more citrus fruit, leafy greens, beans, chicken, and eggs.

Tip 7

It’s nice to receive support, but research shows you get an even bigger mood boost from providing support yourself. So find ways—both big and small to help others. Volunteer, be a listening ear for a friend, do something nice for somebody.

Tip 8

The most benefits for depression come from rhythmic exercise, such as walking, weight training, swimming, martial arts, or dancing—where you move both your arms and legs.

Tip 9

Keep a balance with not too little and not too much sleep. Staying up late one night and then sleeping in excessively the next day is a sure-fire way to feed depression.  Also, don’t try to solve problems late at night when your brain is half-asleep.

Tip 10

If you’ve taken self-help steps and made positive lifestyle changes and still find your depression getting worse, seek professional help. Needing additional help doesn’t mean you’re weak. Sometimes the negative thinking in depression can make you feel like you’re lost , but depression can be treated and you can feel better!

The mentally ill frighten and embarrass us. And so we marginalize the people who most need our acceptance. What mental health needs is more sunlight, more candor, more unashamed conversation.

Quarantine – The soul goal.

Dear globe,

How are you ? Hope you are doing good with dear ones locked up at home in quarantine .

Are you feeling dull , suffocated ? The taste buds are tingling for some yum meal ???

It pinch hard looking at that car key hanging to a beautiful holder near the door .

Somewhere there is a sadness round over the mind.

The comfort of the couch in living room pinch harder now, the coffee tastes bitter when the death toll of the pandemic pop up on the television screen.

Life spells sanitiser, hand-wash, mask, gloves , social distancing more often now a days !

Is life so gloomy in real boat? Is Covid 19 triggering us to bow down to its devastation ?

NO…..,, life whispers and suppresses !!

Life may not always be easy. It may not always be comfortable and joyful. But it always manages to surprise us and to provide us with exciting opportunities for growth.

When anxiety roam around in my mind , a strong desire run into my heart to meet my dear ones, breaking all the quarantine barriers .

I simply have a look at the summer sun through the bird nets of my tiny balcony ..

It is delightful. The small little plants in beautiful earthen pots , magical light and shade on new grown green leaves tickle my mind with its liveliness .

It is much more refreshing than those weekend hang outs i am craving for.

Life is not that gloomy in this quarantine mode, the budding rosemary whispers.

The little girl inside me starts dancing like the way that blue bird does in rainy morning.

When life seems restless zipped up inside the four walls, it’s joy ride with my favourite author’s recent best seller edition. soul soothes deep inside . I wonder silently , thinking of my branded shopping list that could not feed my soul in this way for so long.

I recall John Milton

“The mind is its own place, and in itself, can make a heaven of Hell, a hell of Heaven .”

Little things can pour so much joy , happiness in life if we have the eyes to see and ear to hear. Life is even extra more beautiful in quarantine.

When Life gives the opportunity to brush up the tiring soul and paint it with colors of passion and being self ,i embrace life abundantly .

Soul gets addicted to the togetherness of dear family, the enjoyment of rising toast with friends can not match this piece of joy of life. Life is cheerful even in great silence .

The pandemic may shake our life terribly , can make our mind frightening , dejected , dispirited by its ravaging mask but the mind is the key; the heart is the door; the soul is corridor.

When the soul is comforted, the mind is empowered.

Is not the time is a blessing in disguise ? Lets have a walk into last few years back in life. I can not remember last when i had spent time with my ownself , how much time could i invest on those little things that let my soul bloom and define who m I . Actually, Life is simple , we make it complicated many times .

Lock down is a pause to reveal , re understand life. Standing before the mirror and putting that favourite red lip stick is the moment of being myself. It is a moment of self appreciation , the moment of celebrating life as its own way. The entertainment box in multiplex can not afford that.

Quarantine is not the phase of fear , sadness , anxiety its a silver line in the dark sky. Its an opportunity to win over all the odds with courage and positivity as well as rejuvenating life full of zeal and zest !

Love & Light !!!
