Are you lonely?
Are you aware that being unhappy is a regular part of our every day lifestyles? Let’s face it; we have all been there.
We get depressed when we fail our exams when an individual rejects us, when someone extremely close to us dies or we love. That is just part of existence.
Today is your lucky day because I would like to share some great ideas to help you beat the ‘Melancholy Mood’ to get the MOST bliss out of your daily activities.
Depression signs and symptoms
Suggestion Number 1.
Do you get sunlight and enough Light?
Did you know that lack of coverage to the sunshine is liable for releasing the hormone called Melatonin, which could trigger a dispirited mood or a lethargic condition? Melatonin is only produced in the dark.
It will be that it makes you feel lethargic and lowers your body temperature. Therefore, if you are constantly cooped up in your space (with the curtains sealed), it would be difficult to restrain yourself from staying in bed.
Many folks suffer from depression significantly more frequently in cold weather than in the other seasons. It’s simple since the evenings are longer.
You may constantly lighten up your area with brighter lights to offset the darkness if you can’t afford to get some sunlight. Or You may move lunch outside the office to get a change in the place of driving your car over short miles and taking repeated walks in the early afternoon. The choices are limitless. It is up to you personally.
How to get rid of severe Anxiety and depression
Fatigue, nervous tension, responsible affairs, relationships with people, the bustle of the city, and family disputes are stress factors. The consequences of the impact made them feel during and at the end of the day, affecting us with fatigue, nervous exhaustion,
lousy mood, and nervousness. But all this can be dealt with; you just need to know how I assure you, without sedative drugs and alcohol.
The latter provides only short-term relief and weakens the ability of your body to cope with stress on its own.
I stopped in more detail about this nuance in the article Myth 2 – Alcohol and pills help cope with stress.
At this stage, it is essential to understand that I strongly advise you not to relieve stress with all kinds of drugs, and this article will not talk about all sorts of medicines. We will learn to reduce stress with natural relaxation methods. So let’s get started.
Tip 1 – Clear Your Head from Unpleasant Thoughts
Although it sounds corny, not everyone succeeds in always remembering this, and we begin to chew in the brain the annoying gum of thoughts about unpleasant events of the current day and cannot stop at all.
It is very exhausting and plunging into despair and in no way contributes to getting rid of stress. At such moments, we are simply worried about something or are trying to find ourselves some solution to the current situation.
The key is to think it over tomorrow, and now, turn your attention to something else. I have long noticed how different the perception of life problems depends on our physical and psychological state.
In the morning, being peppy and fresh, everything seems to be on our shoulders; we can deal with everything. Still, in the evening, when we are tired and stressed, problems begin to take on terrifying proportions as if you were looking at them through a magnifying glass.
It seems like you are a different person. But it’s just fatigue and exhaustion that distort the view of many things; you should be aware of this assessing your current state:
“Now I’m exhausted mentally and physically, so I don’t quite adequately perceive many things.
Therefore, I won’t right now think about them “. It’s easy to say, but sometimes it’s hard to give such a sober account, as it would seem those negative thoughts themselves get into our heads and do not want to leave it.
But there is a small ruse on how to deceive your reason, who wants to immediately begin to think about the problem, which now seems to him extremely important.
Promise yourself that you will think it over tomorrow morning as soon as you wake up and open your eyes, and before you wash, you sit down and think it over intensively.
So you lull the vigilance of the mind, which “agree” to make a concession and postpone the solution to this situation.
I did this many times and was surprised to find that a fantastic metamorphosis occurred in the morning with yesterday’s “big problem” – it lost its significance; I even ceased to think about it; it seemed insignificant in a new perspective.
Tip 2 – practice relaxation techniques, and meditate.
About this, so much has been said in the framework of my blog that I will not repeat it. If you want to relieve stress immediately, this is an excellent occasion to try to meditate or start practicing various relaxation techniques and see how well it relieves you of stress.
But there is a second good feature here, the more you do meditation, the better you start to abstract from problems and clear your head of thoughts, and the less stress you get every day because your mind becomes calmer.
It becomes easier for you to bear the influence of stress factors, and those things that once introduced you to great excitement and tension as you practice will become absolute nonsense for you:
suddenly traffic jams, city noise, and disputes at work will cease to be problems and negatively impact you. You will begin to be amazed at how surrounding people take these trifles seriously and dramatically and worry about them as if the whole world had collapsed before their eyes! Although they, some time ago, were upset by the little things.
But one separate meditation session is also beneficial – you feel very relaxed and forget about problems. The main thing is to concentrate and not let into your head thoughts about what happened to you today.
It is challenging to do: ideas will still come but try not to think about anything for at least some time and turn your attention to the mantra or image.
By the way, subscribe to my Instagram from the link below. Regular helpful posts on self-development, meditation, psychology, and relieving anxiety and panic attacks.
Tip 3 – Exercise
Some time ago, I had no idea how to relieve stress without alcohol: a couple of beer bottles were an on-duty means to feel good and relaxed.
But then, when I took up myself and refused such funds, I realized that a 20-minute run at a moderate pace or going to the gym could give a much more tangible result! (Read the article on how to force yourself to play sports).
During exercise, endorphins are released – hormones of happiness. Going in for sports you get a surge of good mood plus strengthen the body.
This is a much more effective means than drinking beer, as the latter only weakens your ability to cope with stress, which I have already discussed and will discuss in the following article.
And sport strengthens you morally: in a healthy body – a healthy mind. Playing sports and doing meditation form in you a long-term ability to resist stress throughout the day.
Tip 4 – Take a contrast shower. Water treatments
You can read about technology somewhere on the net. Generally, I’m going to devote a separate article to this in the future, as it deserves it.
Did you not think that stress attracts some people in tempering with cold water? What makes them in severe frosts mock themselves, like swimming in an ice hole?
And what stretches a satisfied smile on the ruddy countenance of the bather? The answer is endorphins, the well-known “hormones of happiness” (this is a journalistic term, not hormones but neurotransmitters), released during a sharp cooling of the body. It would seem that they would stand out here?
But now I’m going to refill your piggy bank a little bit. However, it’s not digital marketing to worry about. Extreme sports are believed to be associated with adrenaline.
This is true. But it’s not adrenaline that provokes people to dizzying jumps and tricks; it’s not for him that everything happens, as many mistakenly believe. Adrenaline –
It only makes your heart beat faster and increases your stamina and speed of reaction. But those same thrills, “high” after a parachute jump, give endorphins.
These are not only “hormones of happiness,” but they also help anesthetize them. The body begins to secrete them in an extreme situation, which they perceive as threatening. To partially exclude the possibility of death from pain shock due to a possible injury, the release of this hormone begins, which has such a pleasant side effect.
Perhaps, a similar mechanism is triggered by the body’s cooling since it is also stressful for the body (not to be confused with the focus discussed in the article).
A contrast shower is a much softer and more affordable means of hardening the body than winter swimming; everyone can do it.
This procedure is not only able to relieve stress and improve mood, but also dramatically sets the body (I generally ceased to have colds since I took a contrast shower, and my grandfather took it all his life and never had a cold, despite his old age )
A contrast shower and any water procedures can help relieve stress, such as a hot bath, bathing in a pond, visiting the pool, etc.
Tip 5 – Listen to music
Any that you like. The pleasure that you get from listening to music is also directly related to the chemical processes in the brain. They are triggered by a harmonic sequence of sounds (or not quite harmonious – it depends on your taste) and cause a feeling of happiness and euphoria.
Even gloomy music can cheer you up, provided that you like it, however paradoxical it sounds (at least for me).
But just for relaxation, I use smooth monotonous and slow sounding, the so-called ambient, ambient music style. To many, such music may seem dull, but that’s the whole point.
Many other musical styles are characterized by an intense pressure of emotions in compositions, fast rhythm and pace, and a sharp change in mood shades. Although all this can amuse and delight you, in my opinion, relaxation is not always promoted because such music bombards your brain with an abundance of notes and musical intonations.
If you are tired and want to relax, it is better to listen to something more contemplative and “enveloping”; maybe at first, this music will not be liked, but at least you will rest.
You can listen to an example of compositions from the ambient genre in the audio recordings of my group in Contact; for this, you just need to join it (you should see a link to it on the right of the site) and click on play, after having previously taken a lying position in a convenient place.
At the same time, try to relax and “withstand” at least 20 minutes, try to forget about all the problems and do not think anything, “dissolve” in the music.
Tip 6 – Contemplative exercises while walking
To relieve stress, you can walk a bit and breathe. It is better to choose a calm and quiet place, for example, a park. Avoid the hype and crowds.
Again, during the walk, try to relax, free yourself from thoughts, look around more, and direct your gaze to the outside, not inside yourself and your problems. Contemplative exercises contribute well to calm.
Sit on a bench and look at a tree, peer at every bend of it, and try so that nothing else takes your attention for a specific time. This is a subtype of meditation practice that you can do whenever you want, even at lunchtime at work.
When walking, the pace is slow, do not run anywhere, and do not rush. You can combine with sports, walk, breathe, reach the horizontal bars and bars – hung tightened up and stressed as it happened!
If such walks cause a feeling of boredom, then we must get rid of it!
Tip 7 – Start Relaxing On The Road After Work
I know that even if the day did not turn out to be especially tricky in terms of nervous load, the road home could considerably tire or spoil the mood. Many do not know how to relieve stress after work.
And continue to accumulate it on the way home. Therefore, already on the road, start turning off thoughts of work and current problems, ignore what is happening, do not succumb to universal anger and nervousness, the atmosphere of which, as a rule, prevails in public transport and on roads.
Be calm; try to suppress those impulses that lead to you becoming angry with someone and cursing in your ears or inwardly.
Since all this negativity can bring the finishing touches to your evening picture of stress and tension and finally exhaust you, let others get angry and nervous at their expense, but not you! You can even start some construction work at your home to divert your mind.
Tip 8 – stress is more natural to prevent than to relieve!
Here is the golden rule that you must learn. To avoid getting rid of stress with lethal means such as tablets or alcohol, it is better to minimize its manifestations throughout your day, starting in the morning.
How can this be done, and can it be done at all? To find out, first, we’ll talk about what stress is and how it accumulates in you.
