Recent studies report that an estimated 16.2 million American adults suffer from at least one depressive episode in any given year. That’s a lot of people suffering from depression. What are things you can do if you’re suffering from depression and do not see results from antidepressants or therapy sessions?
There are natural remedies to help combat depression. Research suggests doing the following to help fight off depression:
Set daily goals for yourself, which may help you feel better as it’s hard to get motivated when depressed. Make sure you exercise daily to boost your endorphins and eat a healthy diet. Get yourself out of a rut by trying something new and fun. It’s challenging to find joy in anything when you’re suffering from depression. The key is to keep trying new things to ensure you don’t find yourself in a rut. Make sure you’re getting enough sleep. Insomnia and depression go hand in hand. Combat this by going to bed and getting up at the same time every day. When you find negative thoughts creeping in, fight them off. Much of the fight against depression is mental, so try your hardest to change the way you think.
