During a phase of depression sometimes we become pessimist and our negative thoughts make it hard to attain back our peaceful state. As we are already depressed due to tough circumstances, these negative thoughts add fuel to fire and steal our peace of mind making it really hard to concentrate even on routine things. So what should be done to fight the depression and negativity? Below are the tips to be considered:
Try not to think about problems of past and rough circumstances again and again; instead focus on the solutions. Think what needs to be done to fix the issues.
Change your environment. Take a break from your routine life and visit some relative or explore some new routine or environment
Stay away from negative people. Remember, if someone is negative, he/she is spreading negative germs. Keep yourself germ-free.
Read something uplifting or a good book on daily basis.
Do something simple and meaningful for yourself something you like. Feel good about it.
Surround yourself among good thoughts and reflections.
Adopt some good hobby and spend time on it. (gardening, blogging, book reading)
Give gifts of conversation, thoughts or presence to others. This act gives real inner happiness.
Think about the positive events of your life. About your childhood, education, fun trip, a friend’s wedding etc.
Remember all things pass including our difficult moments. Be patient and gain something fro the journey you are on no matter the course or direction. This will change your trajectory quickly.
