Many people, especially close friends, ask me how I do it.
Battling with depression is no easy task, especially for those who find themselves running down a never-ending staircase or feel like they are locked in a room full of darkness.
Someone in my family said:
‘I do wonder if these is such a thing as ‘fully cured from depression’
I believe you can be cured from depression, even if it takes a huge amount of time, patience and effort. I believe changing states of the mind is as real as a caterpillar transforming into a butterfly.
The trouble is, these days huge amounts of people mistake normal sprouts of sadness for depression. If you feel you are miserable about a certain something, many of you hop to stating ‘I am so depressed about…’ – which is not necessarily the case for many situations.
My take on ‘depression‘ is thus; It is a mental state/condition whereby one feels a constant weight of despondency.
I was only able to wonder back into the daylight when I changed my daily routine.
Marco explained that my constant day to day routine was bound to be tedious and keep me in a miserable state.
That was when I took a look at my boring, unchanged schedule and realised my Marco was exactly right.
My advice to anyone feeling at a constant low would be to;
- Look at your daily routine
- Discard any tedious acts in your routine
- Discard negative people
- Add new simple goals to achieve daily
- Constantly change the activities in your day
Just remember; you have the willpower, you have the strength, you can change your life for the better.
Try this one tip, It definitely helped me gain confidence, a feeling of being refreshed and most importantly it gave my life a more positive mood.
