Beating Depression Naturally: You can do it!

Beating depression
As overwhelming and bleak as it might appear, hopefully this will give you hope: Beating Depression Naturally is a possibility.  In this day and age it seems that we are living in a society where anxiety and depression are constantly at everybody’s heels, should we fall onto their grasps, there are many ways out. Some even are so simple and easy that they might surprise you. Depression is a burden that many of us carry; it’s an inner demon that at times can pin us down. You can break free from depression, in ways that you might not know you had at your disposal.

When you find yourself amidst a depression, the very first thing that is recommended is that you seek counseling. Do not be afraid to seek help. Having someone to talk to about your problems and how you are feeling can be very liberating. Granted, opening up to someone about your depression and how you feel can be a huge obstacle for some, but once you overcome it you will feel the results. Just talking about your depression will bring a great deal of relief.

Many doctors and specialists will recommend that you take up physical activities for beating depression naturally. Activities like exercise, swimming, running, kick-boxing (let some aggression out, it works). But if you are not quite ready to take on such activities and perhaps are not able to muster the motivation to do them, start simple: go for a walk. Go outside, out where nature is. Let your mind find peace within itself and let your thoughts organize. Walking has been known to spark creative thinking and physical exercise stimulates the release of endorphins, which are hormones that can cause you to actually feel better. Some people find in yoga and meditation another way to connect to your feelings and weather the depression and learn to deal with it, live with it, and finally overcome it. Make sure you get yourself a Mat and get to Yoga!

Even though the romanticized depiction of depression in art and entertainment has shown it with a whiskey bottle in one hand, this is only exacerbating the problem. Drinking, and especially heavy drinking, will mask momentarily the pain inside and will bury it in a deeper and darker area inside you. Alcohol might numb the pain out for a while but it will not make it disappear or make you forget. It will still be there in the morning, alongside a heavy hangover. So in a way you’ll wake up worse than before.

Pamper yourself, get a massager like the Body Drummer, after a long day try to relax and ease some stress and have some “me time”. Also, take care of your body and eat right. We all know that depression causes for a loss of appetite, but eventually you will get hungry. Avoid indulging your depression with junk food or overeating, eat healthy and right and your body will thank you for it.

Finally, and this is my own personal word of advise because it helped me with my own depression, go ahead and laugh. Laugh your behind off, watch a silly unapologetic stupid movie, tv show or listen to a comedy record. In a way, I like to think as every laughter as a the body chipping away the sadness and the depression. A real, truthful gut laugh will do more for your body than any antidepressant will.
