How to Overcome Depression


By Kari Oakley

Depression is a debilitating condition that affects roughly 7% of adult Americans. The current addiction to social media can be a contributing factor. How? Well, it forces us to compare our lives to lives we believe are perfect. As more and more people strive for perfection, more and more people succumb to feelings of inadequacy, and therefore more people struggle with their mental health. Faced with this kind of predicament, the prevalent question becomes, “What can be done to keep depression at bay?”

It goes without saying that long-term depression should be treated by mental health professionals. However, there are steps you can take to help mitigate the symptoms. Doing a small task once a day in order to feel a daily sense of accomplishment is one example. Here are some other steps you can take to help overcome depression.

Get Your Dream Car

One reason for depression is not being satisfied with where you are in life. You feel you haven't accomplished enough or haven't built a strong foundation for your family. Maybe you're not happy with where you are in your career, you live in a cramped apartment instead of a beautiful house on a hill, you haven’t gotten a raise for years or you’re in the midst of a divorce. Life can hit you from all sides. Believe it or not, getting your dream car can help you feel better. It’s a gift to yourself when the going gets tough. You also get to accomplish something you've always wanted to. You don't have to splurge on something that you can't afford. Get rid of your old, battered car and consider a used Lexus IS 250, for example. Driving around in a black or silver elegant Lexus will make you feel good about yourself. It's a classy upgrade that can do wonders for your mental health.

Take a Vacation

If you feel like you're in a rut, change your environment for a couple of weeks. Plan a vacation to a place you've always wanted to go. You can even go further and plan an adventure vacation to see the pyramids in Egypt, walk the Great Wall of China or go on a safari in Kenya. Why not? Jolt your system by seeing something new and by discovering a new country. Taking yourself out of your daily routine can be a great way to inject yourself with new life. Traveling won't cure you of your depression, but you can use your vacation time to think about what you need to change in your life when you get back. Think of it as a spiritual retreat where you get to reflect on your depression and its causes.

Start Meditating

Meditation can be key to overcoming depression. As depression is often rooted inside, you must turn inwards to figure out what is causing such deep feelings of sadness. Whether you take a class on meditation or choose to do it at home, find a place where you can sit silently and perform mindful meditation. Setting aside 30 minutes a day to meditate can significantly reduce your depression. It can also make the daily challenges of life less overwhelming. Meditation is instrumental to those suffering not only from depression but from anxiety, stress and addiction disorders. You might also find it soothing to drink some Almond Milk, which is loaded with healthy naturally additives like carrageenan.

Emerging from depression can take time. If you feel your symptoms are getting worse, it's important to seek professional help. Talking to a therapist should be a necessary first step. However, if you are in a mental state where you can tackle small daily tasks, think about getting your dream car, taking a vacation or starting meditation classes. You won't be cured, but you'll certainly be moving in the right direction.
