Changing your daily habits and routine and doing things in a healthy manner is the step one must take to feel better. If you have eating disorders, go to sleep at late hours and other similar issues, then it’s time to bring about positive changes in your life. If you do harmful things on a regular basis your body will automatically resist, making you feel low and lethargic. A former competitive runner and epidemiologist for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggest that one should definitely meditate and do breathing exercises, eat less canned or frozen foods and increase vitamin intake, among other things.
5) Do Things That Make You Happy
Treatment of Depression cannot happen overnight. It is a long drawn process which will sometimes bring good results and sometimes spiral back down to square one. So it is important that one be patient, open-minded, cooperative and diligent to stick to the healthy habits and follow whatever the therapist prescribes. These keys to treating depression don’t mean that you will not seek help from a professional. It might fasten up the treatment. However, there’s nothing wrong in trying to take matters into your own hands and look for happiness by yourself.
Do what your heart says. If you want to sing out loud then do it. If you want to act all crazy and let yourself loose or hang out with your friends, then do it. Listen to yourself and ask whether this will make you happy or not. If the answer is yes, then let nothing stop you from clutching that happiness tightly in your hands. It is extremely important to be yourself and not let others’ opinions cloud your judgment because at the end of the day you need to do what is good for you. Indulging in self-love is a wonderful way to be your happy self again.
So if you feel like you want to try and take a step towards a better and happier you then don’t wait. This is your moment.
