4. Start Mindfulness Meditation
Being spiritual, I always had a keen interest in Buddhism and the Eight Fold Path. This led me to Mindfulness Meditation. Mindfulness meditation is the practice of bringing your attention to the present moment by focusing on your breath. I started meditation at my lowest point and it gradually it gave me inner peace and peace of mind that I had completely lost. No I am not perfect right now. But I am way better than I used to be.
Is meditation one the best ways to fight depression that you want to try? Trust me, YOU DO. If you have never meditated before or find this a bit confusing, then let me tell you mindfulness meditation is simpler than you can imagine. But it’s not easy. All you need to do is sit down in a place where you won’t be distracted and bring your attention and awareness to your breath. You can search YouTube for some instructional videos or even try a few guided meditation sessions to get the hang of it. Just Google. It will help you to live in the present moment and experience life in it’s true essence…through your breath.
Give Yourself Another Chance
Give yourself another day. You will find the courage you need. Don’t give up just yet.
Coping with depression is never easy. You will need to be determined and have enough mental strength, something you feel you don’t have at all. But you do. Trust me. It’s deep inside you. You simply need to look inside and reach for it. Coping with depression starts with self-help. But you already know that.
Your journey to get out of depression will be worth it in the end, despite how hard it gets.
Take one step at a time. Fight one day at a time. Experience life one breath at a time.
If I can do this, so can YOU.
Here’s a quick video that will help you identify the signs of depression so that you can immediately start your journey to a better life.
