In most of the cases, depression occurs due to some difficult situations in life, such as temptations, problems, losses or events that you just cannot influence on.
However, there are things you can do in such situation of hopelessness and sadness that will help you preserve your mental health
These are habits which are unconsciously sabotaging the good mood, and which you should immediately stop doing. Here are those habits.
You are being hunched
People who walk hunched feel a lot poorer and less confident than those who held their body upright and walk with their head up.
Taking picture of everything
If you think that by watching the photos it will be easier for you to remember everything that you see, you’re wrong. You will remember more only if you really devote a few minutes of your attention.
You let everyone use you
Do not think that harassment and bullying happens only in school, because it happens the whole of life. More than 70 percent of people have experienced harassment at work just because they did not know how to say “no.” Therefore, seek professional help and stop all the harassment.
You do not exercise
The lack of physical activity has a proven negative effect on your mental condition. If you exercise three times a week you have 19 percent less chances to suffer from depression.
You are stalling everything
Remember how many obligations you have that could be completed today, and you simply left them for tomorrow? You must never do that. You must complete all your daily tasks, because if you leave them for tomorrow you will only feel worse.
You are in an unhealthy relationship
You keep on fighting, cannot agree about anything, your partner thinks only for himself and does not support you. In these situations it is normal to feel bad and constantly nervous. Now it is time to stop this and end your relationship.
You take life too seriously
When was the last time you had a good laugh? If you do not remember, this is a sign that you are in trouble and you need to relax. Experts say that laughter is the best medicine for anxiety and depression.
Poor sleep or not sleep at all
If you often have trouble sleeping you should seek professional help as soon as possible. If you do not sleep just because you do not have time to sleep, then it is time to change your habits.
You do not have time for yourself
Taking care of your children, partner, work, housework, you simply cannot manage to find time for yourself. If you do not have at least two hours a week that you can spend on you doing what you really want to do, you will become depressed.
You barely communicate with other people
If you maintain friendships through social networks and text messages, and you barely talk with people face to face, it is very likely that you will fall into a depression.
You cannot last even a day without your mobile phone
When was the last time you spent an entire day without using your smartphone, tablet or laptop? Do you remember? If not, then you are under a nasty stress and you should visit a psychologist immediately.
You are performing multiple actions at the same time
If you think that is great and that you are a multitasking machine, then you are wrong. Experts say that this is detrimental to your psyche because you do not pay enough attention to everything.
