29 Ways to Combat Depression

Thu, Jan 7, 2010

Personal Development

1.Eat smart – There is a connection between mind and body. A healthy diet not only fuels your body, but it also helps you feel better. Limit fat and sugar.  Build your diet around plenty of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains to help improve both your health and stabilize your mood.
2. Eat small meals throughout the day for a pick-me-up.
3. Choose wisely – Increase omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin B-12.  Fatty fish such as salmon, tuna and mackerel, flaxseed, nuts and dark green vegetables contain omega-3 fatty acids.  Seafood and low-fat dairy products are good sources for B-12. Vegetarians may take supplements.
4. Drink less caffeine  Too much caffeine can make you nervous, jittery or anxious.  Cutting back on soda, coffee, tea and processed chocolate can improve your mood and help you sleep better at night.
5. Treat your aches and pains – chronic pain can cause depression and depression can make pain worse. Work with your health care team to treat your depression and your pain.
6. Get a consistent amount of sleep each night.  Learn good sleep habits. Use relaxation techniques to help fall asleep.  Healthy sleep makes you feel better physically and mentally.
7. Exercise: for some people, exercise works as well or even better than antidepressants. Exercise each day in your home, with a friend or exercise group or go for a brisk walk. The important thing is to pick something you like and be consistent!
8. Take time for mindful relaxation.  Restore a sense of calm and control.  You might consider a yoga or meditation class. Have an attitude of gratitude.  Make a list of 6-10 positive things or blessings in your life.
9. Get enough sunlight! Do you feel more depressed during the darker, cold months?  You may have seasonal affective disorder or SAD. SAD is often treated with light therapy (exposure to artificial sunlight).  Ask your doctor if light therapy is right for you.
10. Avoid alcohol and drugs.  Alcohol and drugs can slow or prevent recovery from depression.
11. Fill your surroundings with beautiful music you enjoy.
12. Explore your Creativity.
Painting, photography, music, knitting, or writing in a journal are all ways people explore their feelings and express what’s on their mind. Do something that gives you pleasure.  It may help you to define who you are and how you feel.
13 Your dog can really be your best friend.  When you play with your pet you take your mind off your own problems, also you’re fulfilling a commitment to something outside yourself.  Caring for others can be very therapeutic.
14.  Go out and enjoy the beauty of nature.
15. Do something for yourself
that you know will lift your spirits.
16. Establish/review your priorities and eliminate low priority stress and pressure-causing activities.
17. Be forgiving of yourself and others. Don’t dwell on your mistakes and what you consider to be the mistakes of others.
18. Recognize the fact you can’t please everyone.
19. Do it now!
Procrastinating just creates more problems.
20.Be decisive.  Indecision leads to worry.
21. Communicate on a deeper level with your sweetheart. Use “I” message instead of “you” messages.
22. Recognize The Power Within~ understand that you are a diamond in the rough.
23. Avoid negative terms of speech such as never, always, I have to, I can’t, no one ever, hate, etc.  Use more realistic positive terms like sometimes, occasionally, I choose to, I’ll try, some people, it’s irritating, it’s inconvenient, dislike, don’t care for, etc.
24. Reach out and touch someone! When we receive and give good touching, the body chemistry helps us feel better and relaxed.  Keep Friends and family in your life.  The people who love you want to support you. Talk about your depression, it feels good to have someone listen.
25. Keep people in your life, have lunch or dinner with a special friend.
26. Do something nice for someone else.  Get you mind off of yourself.  Caution; Don’t become involved with other peoples problems, just listen, encourage, and help where you can.
27. Get involved in worthwhile community activities. Being involved with others can help you regain a sense of purpose.  And it doesn’t take much to get started.  Try volunteering with a charity. Or join in a discussion group at the library or at church.  Meeting new people and doing new things will help you feel good about yourself.
28. Remember that you have a Heavenly Father that loves you and cares about you.  Seek His comfort and Help.
29. Seek professional help if you feel you or any member of the family need it — without embarrassment.

    Some good tips. I think too many people are too quick to go onto anti-depressents as soon as they, or their doctor, think they are suffering from depression. I think doctors are often guilty of not looking at the root problems of depression and instead just taking the easy way out a prescribing drugs.

      You are so right, we need to find other ways! Unfortunately the more I learn about depression, the more I realize that true depression is a disease, just like multiple sclerosis is a disease, MS a disease of the body, Depression is a disease of the mind. Clinical depression needs more than just “picking yourself up by the bootstraps”. But normal everyday ‘blues’ are just that! For that you can pick yourself up!

    Most of the times, someone who is depressed just needs someone to demonstrate to them that their presence in the world does matter, that there are people who care about them enough to help them make the first step in the right direction. It can be very helpful to them if you get a referral for them to get professional help, assist them in making the appointment and getting to it.

    Even simple tasks can be daunting to someone who is severely depressed. Often, they require assistance in getting the help they desperately need because they are incapable of taking care of the things the rest of us take for granted.

      Thank you Chris, you are right. This post was created to help the average person who needs to ‘pick themselves up by the boot straps’ to feel better. Clinical depression needs much more than that. Assistance is often a necessity. For the severely depressed, there is rarely a ‘picking themselves up’ possibility. Just as I need medication for Multiple Sclerosis, clinically depressed people often need medication. I feel for them. When someone sees me with my walker, they have compassion. When people see my ‘clinically depressed’ friend, they often think she just needs to pick herself up. I tease and tell her she needs a walker! I’m glad you shared!

    Great information here. I feel nutrition probably plays one of the most significant factors in depression, apart from genetics or external factors. Eating healthily at regular intervals and staying hydrated can definitely help in overcoming depression. At the same time, staying away from the bad substances can curb the onset of depression (or reduce its effects). The side effects of anti-depressant drugs can be a little scary, but they do help initially in the more severe cases of depression.

    These are all really great tips, and a great list of things to combat depression – or even to avoid it before it happens! There is one thing I would add as #30, though, and that’s to laugh and smile as much as possible. I read somewhere that the act of smiling or laughing can physically improve your mood, and I don’t know about you but I’ve found it to be pretty true!

    Reply

  20. Leonard@KitchenAid Professional 600 Says:

    I surely agree with Tara. The smile makes the heart grow fonder. and making the heart recover and combat depression. It takes pressure and time to get our hearts depressed. but once it gets depressed the person always startle to all things that put him in depression. One thing to fight is not to linger much of the negative environment and issues, We should learn to relax as often. Treat ourselves sometimes with pampering. This helps a lot.

    Reading about depression doesn’t make me feel much better. Writing about is doesn’t do much either. I’ve been living with it for so long that to not suffer from it would be like losing a friend that I never really liked. That might sound strange but we all have friends that we don’t like that much but would still feel bad if they were gone.

    This isn’t any crazier then what most depressed people would have to say.

    Not at all. I personally hate this kind of treatment, it’s often just a marketing thing.

    Instead, I really started listen my needs and take care of myself. Then, slowly, I started a few things you actually put on your list (eat healthy, go out and enjoy nature, exercise a bit).

    It wasn’t an easy path to take, but it made me grow a lot.

      Mary,
      Thank you for telling me! I wrote this post for people like you!! Unfortunately I have learned that some people who suffer from clinical depression have a disease. Just as I have Multiple Sclerosis, some people have Depression, a diseased brain. Those people need medication just like I do. It’s a total bummer for them because in our society we think that if a person is depressed they just need to ‘pick themselves up by the bootstraps” like you did! I’m very happy for you taking control of your life and finding happiness in that process. I have always said, “Everyone needs a walker. My walker is my trump card. No one expects anything from me and I can do anything I want.” Then my daughter said, “No mom, you can’t do anything you want. You can’t walk.”

    Great tips! Most of the part of your 29 ways are brilliant and true.. A depressed person usually have a personal problems and facing different difficulties, such as failures and high expectations.. I have a friend who experience depression for 1 year because in everything he do he fails and he do not meet his expectations to that certain person or thing.. But then as a friend, I told him that ” no one would cure you, not even the doctor nor me it is you!”. Being depressed is all about ourselves, and the most curable one is to find ourselves and gradually start living with less expectations and think positive thoughts, and fortunately, my friend is now in the process of healing himself.. Anyways, I’ll just share a little bit about depression and hope it finds you well guys.. Thanks for the wonderful ways on how to struggle depressions and I learn so many things about it..

    As far as I know, there is no “cure” only ways to lesson the impact and perhaps the duration. Hang with positive people. Do things you like to do even if you don’t feel like it. Get plenty of sleep, and try to stay busy so you don’t dwell on it too much. You will be okay.

    I surely agree with Tara. The smile makes the heart grow fonder. and making the heart recover and combat depression. It takes pressure and time to get our hearts depressed. but once it gets depressed the person always startle to all things that put him in depression. One thing to fight is not to linger much of the negative environment and issues, We should learn to relax as often. Treat ourselves sometimes with pampering. This helps a lot.

      I agree with you~ for a social animal by nature, travel is a great way to lift my spirits! Like I always say, there is a difference between being “blue” and clinically depressed. We need to contact our health care provider if it’s more than just being blue!

      I couldn’t agree more! Distraction can help get us out of the blues. We need to remember that clinical depression needs more attention. I was just talking to my friend this morning (no lie) and she went off her medication a few months ago and she couldn’t pick herself up. She called her doctor and got back on her meds, hopefully in a few days she’ll bounce back.
