Depression is feeling like you've lost something but having no clue when or where you last had it. Then one day you realize what you lost is yourself.
Remind yourself that it's okay not to be perfect. Here are some tips from Operation Blessing Foundation Philippines on how to overcome depression.
Watch Your Thoughts
Read books on positivity, talk to positive people, keep a diary of negative thoughts and review it again during good times as these help overcome negative thoughts.
Set the goals on a day to day basis so that the daily routine can be restructured and get them going.
Sunlight is a great source of positive energy that energizes both body and mind.
Reach out to close friends and family members and try and build new relationships.
Start with 30 minutes exercise per day and build on gradually based on tolerance levels.
A balanced diet rich in vitamins, minerals especially chromium, and omega-3 fatty acid, has a positive influence on mood.
If you have problems sleeping, change the bed room environment to something that's conductive to good sleep.
Cultivate New Hobbies
Take a break, read a book or journal, learn an instrument, as hobbies can get one through the depressed state.
Stop Being A Perfectionist
Nobody is perfect and so keep expectations realistic.
Being grateful for what you have is another good quality that faith teaches us and in case you have forgotten these aspects, rekindle your faith in God.
