From time to time we become gloomy, losing enthusiasm and being even depressed. It happens for various reasons – sometimes because of the gushed problems, sometimes because of vital failures which, apparently, pursue us on heels. Such factors great variety and we will not be able to discuss each of them in this article. However there are several universal councils which can help you to win against despondency and a depression.
The condition of frustration and depression prevents us to achieve the objectives. We understand that for this purpose it is necessary to work much and tensely, but simply we do not find forces and motivation. Such state can become chronic if not to take measures and not to work on itself. Here several councils checked by me personally in order that will cope with despondency and a depression:
- Make the list. Sometimes we are depressed because on us the confusion of vital disorders or an immense lot of uninteresting work overflows. You can be fond of GTD technique (Getting Things Done is bringing affairs to end), but often even her inveterate supporters drop out of the system because of the shortage of energy and motivation. And everything that collected, suddenly and has sharply an effect, unsettling us. Begin to cope with disorders, having armed only with a leaf of paper and the handle. Just make the list of the things, phenomena and events oppressing you most of all. It can be problems at work, house disorders, personal failures, or all above-mentioned at the same time. You will lighten, having already just made the list, thus you kind of will begin to control these adverse factors. You will accurately see that you need to make to return itself courage and clarity of mind.
- Get down to business. The list is made, and the mood and an order in thoughts were not restored? Then begin with the very first point in your list. It something large-scale? Break bulky work into several tasks less, it will be so easier to begin. Believe as soon as you start active actions, it will become easier at once. Of course, the cloud of problems which hung over you will not dissipate in a flash, but nevertheless to work – it is much better, than just to lie on a sofa and to feel sorry for itself.
- It is obvious that to you not before exercises. But make over yourself effort! Walk in the fresh air, come for jog, go to gym … be engaged in what you usually do as physical exercises — and now! It is absolutely optional to plunge into the exhausting trainings, even the small muscular activity will encourage you at once and will bring into a tone. Make it!
- Make toilet. If you roll on a bed in one underwear, for weeks not to take a shower and just to stay idle – at you hardly something will turn out. The elementary contrast shower and is a little attention to personal hygiene – and the feeling of purity will positively affect your mood. Clean teeth, brush the hair, shave, make everything to bring themselves into purity and an order. External purity, purity of a body – a right way to purity internal – that is clarities of mind.
- Leave the house and be engaged in something. Sometimes, when you long sit up within four walls, having amorphously collapsed on a sofa, it is reflected also in your mood. If you feel that you became limp, freshen up, having come for walk in the open air. Then, already on the fresh head, get down to business, it is preferable for number one in your list.
- Listen to pleasant music. Personally I like Brown Eyed Girl, the Kinks, the Ramones, or clockwork rhythms of Beatles, but at you, most likely, there are favourite performers. Anyway, turn on the music and live in beat. It what the doctor registered!
- Talk about the problems. Address someone to whom you can talk about what concerns you - to your best friend, the family member, the fellow worker. They will want to help – on that they and is. If there are no such people in your life, it is worth using telephone hotlines or to address the expert. Among other things, there are also Internet forums. There you can always find the interlocutor who, though remotely, but will be able to give to you several advice. Share with someone to whom you trust, and you will feel how the stone from your soul, though did not fall, but considerably decreased. Perhaps, your relatives will also help you to deal with the reasons
