Depression is common as cold in the world these days. Only a victim knows the torment caused by it since he/she is the one who suffers from the burden of not being able to lead a normal and happy life.
Most popular method to overcome this is known all over the world as attending to a doctor for medication. But yet I must tell you, that there are ways to get rid of depression even without having any medication.
1 Get an optimum Sleep
Have more concern on the number of sleeping hours. Try your best to maintain it between 7-8 hours.In case of depression you will hardly get a sufficient sleep. Most of the time you’ll be awake at night worrying about different aspects of life.
If that’s the case it’s better to set a bed time and wake time to your daily routine which will turn into a habit later.
2 Get Balanced Diet
Physical fitness has a direct impact on the mental fitness. So that in order to avoid depression or get rid of it; you should definitely maintain a healthy and balanced diet. Add nutrients such as proteins, vitamins and carbohydrates to your meal. And make sure to get your breakfast like a king and drink pure water throughout the day.
3 Engage in Meditation
Mind is both the main controller and cause of depression. If you can take the control of it and engage in all activities with consciousness; you will never be a victim of depression any more. Practice meditation to calm down your panicked mind. Initiate it from little time frames and extend it to much larger time frames. You will definitely gain the peace of mind and more energy which will drive you away from the burden of depression. Your mind will be freed from its own internal prison.
