    Hi everybody

    Here a few tips against depression.....

    Develop interests
    Perhaps one of the most common reasons for depression is a lack of enough interests and activities. A small number of them tend to become routine and after boring, Interests and activities are very important in mental health, contributing to self-esteem and happiness. They give satisfaction, help make u feel good about yourself, and keep your mind off problems and negative thoughts and emotions. Simply cultivating them can sometimes cure depression, grief, addiction, explosive anger, anxiety, excessive worrying or guilt, especially if you do the activities whenever you feel the negative emotion. There are many things you can do in this area...housework, visiting the sick or elderly ,developing a hobby that involves the use of the hands and so much more.

    Keep positive
    Negative thinking habits play a very important role in depression. Research shows depressed people tend to minimize their accomplishments, talents, and qualities. Happy people experience failure, disappointment, rejection, negative emotions, pain, and great sorrow too just like depressed people. But happy people keep positive attitude by gracefully accepting sadness and suffering as normal parts of life, while doing what they can about their problems. This also makes them more pleasant to be around and improves their social lives. Part of hapiness is a courageous choice of loving life in the face of suffering, a chosen position or views of things.

    Fix your personal problems
    Work on your personal problems, using small steps to make sure you avoid becoming overwhelmed. Work on only one or two simple things at a time breaking large or complex problems into goals you can easily accomplish. Use rewards, friends, family and support groups. What negative or stressful situations exist in your life ? What can you do about tham? Don't give up and allow your problems to continue. Brainstorm solutions and ask other people for ideas. Don't let negative thought habits interfere with the problem solving. Keep an open mind to all possible solutions.

    Bye by now.... :hatsoff

    Depression is one of those disorders which most people face in there life as some stage for one reason or the other. If it's children the pressure of studies gets over their head and if it's adults the pressure of work attracts depression.

    The best way to get over stress, depression and anxiety is to take a break from your regular schedule, go out, and take good sleep. This helps in clearing the mind and try consulting a specialist who can suggest you as how you can get over your problem. There are various prescription drugs to get over anxiety and depression, but these should only be used in accordance with the instruction of a physician and going on anti depressants should be the last option. Rather than going on drugs, one should look for the reason behind there problem . Keeping yourself busy and changing the schedule also helps sometimes to get over stress and depression.
