Major Depressive Disorders hits about 6.7% of the adult population in the US per year. Seeing as how pervasive it is, it’s important for us to have skills and techniques top combat it. I’m going to give you 3!
Don’t sleep too often. Staying in bed or taking frequent naps during the day only worsens depression and your ability to cope with it. Try to go to bed and wake up at the same time. It’s hard when you start, but routine helps!
Eat well. How one eats affects physical and mental health. Eating a good, consistent 3 meals a day (around the same time each day) will help your brain to create more positive thought patterns.
Be kind to yourself. Try to dispel those negative thoughts and treat yourself!
So, enjoy the holidays by creating better habits and setting yourself up for success!
