Why self-help strategies for depression are useful

Along with seeking treatment to manage depression there are a number of things you can do that may help you in overcoming depression. Developing self-help strategies to manage your depression in day to day life can make a huge difference to how well you are able to cope with your symptoms.

  • Track your thoughts by writing them down. It’s a good way to express your feelings, and it can also help you figure out which thoughts make you feel worse.
  • Learn relaxation. Relaxation is great for reducing stress.
  • Go easy on alcohol and drugs. If you’re using alcohol and drugs to cope, you could actually make your symptoms worse, both while you’re using them, and in the long run. 
  • Eat well, keep active. It can make a difference to your energy levels, and helps stimulate hormones (like endorphins) that help you feel better about yourself.
  • Take some time out to do things you enjoy. When you’re feeling down it can make it really hard to get motivated to socialise and do things. Try and make yourself do one thing you usually enjoy each day.
  • Learn something new. Developing new skills and achieving things lifts your mood.
  • Get back into nature. There’s research that shows that when you have contact with pets, plants, gardens, parks etc., it reduces stress and boosts your mood. Go for a walk outside.
  • Talk to someone you trust. Talking to a family member or friend is a great opportunity for you to express how you’re feeling. They can also provide you an outsider’s opinion on what’s going on.
  • Join a support group. It can be really helpful to talk to people who have gone through similar experiences. Check out key services for help with depression for more info.
  • Learn positive coping strategies.
  • Set small goals. Don’t expect a ridiculous amount of yourself; it could make you feel down if you can’t meet your expectations. Set yourself small goals and take things one step at a time.
  • Develop a healthy sleep routine. Sleep has a huge effect on our physical and emotional health. Get some tips to help you get into a sleeping routine.
  • Exercise regularly and maintain a balanced diet. There is a huge number of benefits associated with exercise and a good diet. Start small and work towards having an exercise routine and balanced diet set in place.  

If you are using a few of the strategies above but you’re finding your depression symptoms a bit overwhelming, go and see your doctor or mental health professional. It could be as simple as a particular strategy not being right for you, but it’ll be easier to work out how to overcome depression if you have help.

Taking your Bushflower Essence twice a day will also support you on an energetic level to make the changes you are desiring for your life. It is also helpful when you feel as though you have tried everything already and have run out of ooomph,  just take your drops and let your subconscious do the rest.
