In recent days, millions of depression cases have been on the rise. People of all age, gender, tribe, and religion are fighting with depression each day. Due to lack of enough measures and better ways of dealing with depression, depression in many people has become so severe so that we end up losing lives. This should not be the case. Why?
There are things you may consider during a severe depression that may help you overcome and live a better life. Not only so, but these ways are also safe and healthy. For instance taking CBD oil, distracting the mind, seeking counseling, and exercising are things you should consider.
- Taking CBD Oil
Most people believe that only pharmaceutical drugs can help in the case of severe depression. Well, that may be true but not always. Again, the side effects of these pharmaceutical drugs may not make these drugs suitable for everyone. According to the experts view from CBDTrust, CBD oil has proven to be effective in dealing with depression and anxiety. This is possible because CBD oil increases serotonin which helps to fight depression and anxiety. Besides, they say that the drug has fewer side effects in comparison to pharmaceutical drugs.
With so many countries legalizing CBD oil, it has become easy to find it on almost all the pharmacy counters for treating severe depression.
- Distracting Your Mind
The main problem that causes severely depressed people to get overwhelmed by depression is that they sit idle doing nothing. As a result, depression ends up tearing their hearts apart even more. I have been under severe depression, and one of the things I have seen working is distracting my mind by doing odd jobs in the house. Take for example, washing utensils, cleaning the house, rearranging my house and the like.
You can also make phone calls to those people whom you so dearly love. They may say something that will give you a smile. Read books or watch movies that you love. Listen to the music of your choice — dance along if you can. Eventually, your mind will focus on what you are doing instead of what is causing depression.
Taking only half an hour a day doing exercise can help you during severe depression. However, if you have been under severe depression for long and you feel weak, it is not advisable to do strenuous exercise. On the contrary, consider doing a minor exercise like walking, swimming, riding, walking up and down the staircase of your apartments and the like.
According to reports from various researches, excising regularly works equally as taking medication but with no side effects. But do you do it once and call it off? No, you need to do this daily every time you feel depression taking mandate over you. You will not only be dealing with depression but also maintaining a healthy you.
- Seek Counseling
It is unfortunate that most people during their severe depression days want to stay away from other people. Worst still is that they do not want to open up to anyone leave alone seeking help. But I got to remind you that a problem shared is half solved. That means that just by sharing whatever is making you feel depressed, you will be in a position to feel better and get a solution to whatever you consider as too-tough-to-tackle.
As you do other things to overcome severe depression, seeking counseling from a professional should be among the priorities.
Depending on the privacy of the information you want to share, seek a counselor who is a professional at keeping secrets. Also, consider one who has a background of successfully helping other depressed people.
There are many things you can consider doing during a severe depression, but the ones I have talked about here are the most effective ones. Not only so, but they are natural ways so that you do not have to deal with the stressful side effects of pharmaceutical medicine.
You don’t have to kill yourself because of things you can control or others can help you control or sort out. Whatever it is, try out all or one of these things I have talked about. Change begins when you implement what I have discussed here.
