Depression is an emotional state that can have a variety of origins. It makes the person feel sad, discouraged, he or she becomes pessimistic, sometimes irritable and may feel like not being important for anyone. Being dispirited differs from depression in its shorter duration. A severe depression may lead to suicidal thoughts. Depression, regardless of its severity, has to be treated by a physician; the faster the diagnostic is made, the faster the cure.

 

Symptoms: PROFOUND SADNESS – DESPONDENCY – LOSS OF INTEREST FOR USUALLY APPRECIATED ACTIVITIES

HEALTH RECOMMENDATIONS:

DIET

Fournir à l’organisme les nutriments dont il a besoin pour bien fonctionner est de toute évidence une priorité lors d’une déprime ou d’une dépression. Certains nutriments, dont les oméga-3, les antioxydants, les vitamines du groupe B et les minéraux, assureront le bon fonctionnement du système nerveux. Certaines carences peuvent aggraver les symptômes de dépression: c’est pourquoi la «malbouffe» doit absolument être évitée.

 

STRESS MANAGEMENT

Learn how to identify the first signs of exhaustion and seek rapidly for help. This will help avoid relapses and facilitate recovery.

 

PHYSICAL EXERCISE

Although it is hard to be motivated during a depressive episode, regular physical activity will definitively improve mood. During physical activity, hormones called endorphins are released by the body, which provide a sensation of wellbeing.

 

SLEEP

Getting enough sleep and rest is essential to a rapid recovery. Adopt a healthy sleep pattern by getting a regular sleep routine and do not hesitate to take a nap in the afternoon.

 

OTHER

People that are more demanding about their own performance often tend to suffer from more depressive episodes in their life than other people. Don’t be too severe with yourself and learn to enjoy life’s little things in your pursuit of happiness. When the objectives are set too high, chances of disappointment are higher, and frustrations are more common. Aiming for modest or more realistic goals will help stabilize emotions.

 

BASIC ADVICE

Visiting a trusted psychotherapist is also a major element to understand the origin of a depressive state and get over it more effectively. Support groups are also organised by health care institutions (such as hospitals) for depression. In combination with the medical treatment, light therapy has also proven effective. In fact, the best way to get over a depression is to combine many different approaches and treatments.
