Living With Depression

The Secret of Fighting Depression & Suicide

When you’re under stress, your body produces more of a hormone called cortisol. In the short-term, this is a good thing because it helps you gear up to cope with whatever is causing the stress in your life.

Stay in touch

Don’t withdraw from life. Socialising can improve your mood. Keeping in touch with friends and family means you have someone to talk to when you feel low.

Be more active

Take up some form of exercise. There’s evidence that exercise can help lift your mood. If you haven’t exercised for a while, start gently by walking for 20 minutes every day.

Face your fears

Don’t avoid the things you find difficult. When people feel low or anxious, they sometimes avoid talking to other people. Some people can lose their confidence in going out, driving or travelling.

Have a routine

Try to get up at your normal time and stick to your routine as much as possible.
Not having a routine can affect your eating. Try to carry on cooking and eating regular meals.

What Causes Depression?

Types of negative thinking that add to depression

Win or bust thinking – Looking at things in dark or-white classes, with no center ground (“If I miss the mark regarding flawlessness, I’m a total disappointment.”)

1. Overgeneralization – Generalizing from a solitary negative encounter, anticipating that it should remain constant perpetually (“I can’t do anything right.”)

2. The mental filter – Ignoring positive occasions and concentrating on the negative. Seeing the one thing that turned out badly, rather than every one of the things that went right.

3. Diminishing the positive – Coming up with reasons why positive occasions don’t check (“She said she enjoyed herself on our date, however I think she was simply being pleasant.”)

4. Jumping to conclusions – Making negative understandings without real proof. You act like a mind peruser (“He should believe I’m pathetic”) or a crystal gazer (“I’ll be stuck in this impasse work for eternity”)

5. Emotional reasoning – Believing that the manner in which you feel reflects reality (“I feel like such a failure. I truly am nothing more than a bad memory!”)

6. ‘Shoulds’ and ‘should-nots’ – Holding yourself to a severe rundown of what you should and shouldn’t do, and pounding yourself in the event that you don’t satisfy your standards.

7. Labeling – Labeling yourself dependent on mix-ups and saw weaknesses (“I’m a disappointment; an imbecile; a washout.”)
