Daily exercise is shown to be beneficial for treating depression and other mental disorders; even simple exercises like taking a walk. Doing simple exercises to move your body can help ease some of the physical symptoms associated with depression. Other helpful daily activities include noticing dietary triggers for depression. Is there a pattern you can observe between what you eat and the impact it has on how you feel? Social interaction as mentioned above can be helpful especially if you’re creating meaningful connection.
The purpose of this blog is simple – to demonstrate the reality and severity of depression. It is often a misunderstood condition.
You may have been depressed at some point in your life, but if you haven’t, it can be difficult to know how depressed people experience it. I have suffered from depression in the past, and I am writing this to give you an idea of what it is like. This is not a guide to self-diagnose yourself as depressed. But if you are struggling with issues such as feeling down, feeling hopeless, or feeling like life isn’t worth living, you may be depressed. If you are feeling these things and they are getting in the way of your life, you may be depressed. You’re not alone. Depression is a treatable condition. Depression is not something that can be “gotten over” and it’s not something that one simply “grows out
of.” Depression is a chemical imbalance in the brain. It is not something
that can be overcome with positive thinking alone. It can be overcome with help, though. Some people go their entire lives suffering and not receiving the care they need. You don’t have to. If you think that you might be depressed and you don’t know where to turn, you can find help here. As a qualified mental health professional I can offer support. I hope this blog has helped you understand what depression feels like. If
you think you might be suffering from depression or would like to learn more, schedule your free call with me today. I would love to help you take the next step towards feeling better.
