Each and everyone of us have the tendency to suffer from depression, but we all have different levels of tolerance to handle it. One person’s ability to handle and fight depression may not be the same as yours or mine. Now the question is, why do some people never even have to complain in having to fight depression at all, at the same time, manage to enjoy a happy and stress free life?
Although you and I just like everybody else out there hate depression, we must admit that it is a normal part of being human. However, anything that goes beyond what is normal is definitely not healthy and thus have to be stopped immediately before it causes any permanent damage. While other people immediately resort to doctors’ advice and drug prescriptions, there are certainly better ways you could handle or fight depression in a much wiser and natural method. The tips I am about to share with you below are no magic formulas, just very natural and wise methods, but they are definitely real and proven solutions that some people constantly apply to keep them on guard from emotional challenges such as worry, fear, stress, anxiety, and all other factors alike that would eventually lead to depression if not properly dealt with from the very start.
1) There is no better way to have a much pleasant and calm personality than having a healthy and matured spiritual being. This is no secret. Ever wonder why do religious or spiritual leaders seemed to always be calm, steady and healthy? You do not have to be really religious and all that, but the main point here is that your spiritual maturity will reflect in your physical being. So, do find ways to improve your spiritual life. Join religious groups or be part of some similar communities that will help you grow spiritually.
2) Always keep a positive attitude. Now this is another no secret kind of thing. In fact, there has not been any motivational book or talk that would not mention this very common piece of advice. The only obvious question that people may always associate with this solution is, “how do you keep up with an always positive attitude?”. A very precise answer to this is, “do not entertain negative thoughts and emotions”. Try to practice this attitude as hard as you can on a daily basis, even if you fail most of the time, until you eventually adopt that positive attitude and then it becomes natural to you already.
3) Never lose hope. Losing hope is a grave mistake you could ever put yourself into. When you lose hope over anything at all, it destroys your system and begin to cloud your mind which eventually leads to depression. Now with this one, if you followed tip #1 then I am sure you are no stranger with the word faith. Go learn about this powerful word, cause if you have faith, you will discover that nothing in this world is ever hopeless. Believe that this world was created out of love and so things will always turn out to be good. Plant that in your heart and really do believe it.
