Cure Your Depression TODAY
Nowadays, when someone doesn't feel 100% about themselves, they usually go to the doctor. They go, talk about how much they think their life sucks (without thinking about how blessed they are that they actually live in a house… unlike people in Africa. Or that 16,000 children die every day from starvation) and the doctor ends up prescribing some sort of pill. In reality, the cure is right before their very eyes.
Medication is good for one thing and one thing only: to bury your feelings. It doesn’t solve any problems at all. Actually, sometimes it can even worsen your feelings if you get the wrong prescription or dose.
On every anti-depressant out there, it has a warning of some sort about how “This medication may worsen depression symptoms and may even cause suicidal thoughts”.
Sometimes it’s good to have anti-depressants. They are good to have if your depression is really out of hand and is causing your life to become unbalanced.
Your life is unbalanced if you find that you can’t manage your money, you’re close to losing your job (if you haven’t lost it already), you push out everyone in your life that loves you and cares about you, you don’t care about anyone but yourself, or you hate yourself. If anything, anti-depressants should be the alternative medication.
The best cure you can find is a change of thought. Depression is nothing but a flaw in your thought process. Make it a habit to replace any negative thoughts with positive thoughts. Yes, you do have a choice. First, though, you need to come clean with yourself and know whether or not you have depression. Take responsibility of your feelings! You are the only person in this world who can change how you feel. No one else has that power but you.
If you are feeling fat, ugly, worthless, useless, without meaning, or any of those awful emotions, why not go for a walk? This really helps you to clear your mind and reset all of your chemicals in your brain, including serotonin.
You know about all the benefits of exercise, you’ve probably seen hundreds of articles about how many different things benefit from exercise. This includes your mental health as well, not just your physical health. It will also help you to be healthier so it’s kind of like killing two birds with one stone. .
So next time you are feeling down on yourself go ahead and grab a friend, maybe your mp3 player, turn your cell phone off (but still bring it with you in case of emergencies) and go walk until you feel better.
