Keep up !!!
Move some energy around!!!
I was born depressed. I didn’t know that in the beginning, but there was always something. Today, I know I wasn’t so happy then. I used to think that I was but I was not. I was living in my own world alone – detached and lost.
In the beginning, it wasn’t so painful. Just long hours when you feel inside out. It was difficult to describe – like something was bothering you all the time, and you could not find your own place or you were there deep down, fallen. I am telling you this because I want you to know that whatever I will say next comes from my life’s experience.
It is not perfect; I know – but is the best I have got.
First and the most important – Attitude. Always keep it up.
No matter how you feel, how down you are, how deep you sink into the black hole – yet, always try to stay positive. You would certainly keep up. That is the only thing you can control – be positive. Even if it is dark all around, you have to bring in some light. I am usually doing this by pushing some good stuff into my head. For example:-World is a beautiful place, all its inhabitants are fantastic, it is a great day, everything is going to be OK, nothing to worry about, today is the day, today something extraordinary is going to happen, this is just for now and it will change etc. It doesn’t have to be true.
I believe that whatever you keep in your head; for sure, after a while it is bound to become who you are. In this case, lies are very helpful.
Still, it is tough – but you have some material which you can control and navigate through the day.
Try to laugh as much as possible.
Always find a reason.
I try to laugh whenever I get a chance on my own fixed terms. I mean just to laugh with myself or loudly from whatever I think is funny.
But you have to be careful because others would want to know the reason behind the laughter, and you could look silly. You don’t want to offend anybody, hence don’t mess up on this.
I think that depression comes mainly due to the lack of energy. I heard about the chemical imbalances in the brain and other internal stuff but in my opinion, the lack of energy brings us down on our knees.
That is what we have to do – Just bring some energy into the system.
Eating is good. I always feel good after meals for an hour or two. But you also have to watch not to eat excessively because then you would grow and grow and you know – what is next… Two, three moderate meals and it is good to finish the last one around 4 – 5 o’clock so that you can sleep without problems.
Again laughing is very good. It moves the energy all around and heals the body and mind.
Hot but not too hot showers or baths are good. You can take them twice a day.
Dancing or crazy movements like clapping or jumping are good as well.
Walks are OK.
You can come with all kinds of activities which can bring energy in.
Sex is good.
Romantic love is even better because it can keep you in the mood longer for days and nights.
Passionate writing, discussion with a friend, watching a good movie or TV with interesting programs etc. can bring an excitement which is very good.
You can just feel how the energy is going up and down through your body bringing out all the good.
Gardening is OK and keeps your mind busy. Generally, keeping your mind busy is the key. Don’t fall apart. Keep together with inner discipline.
Finally the life style. The best is an active one.
Good food – the best organic, with all kinds of supplements i.e. vitamins and minerals.
Good sleep. Life with no stress which is very difficult to achieve.
Good place to live.
Good job, family, surroundings etc.
These are all good advice. They work. I have tried them. I spoke with others about them and they liked them.
Do I follow them?
Well, you cannot have everything. Sometimes, I have just enough… but I keep the attitude. I am lazy as well… However, my advice are here, and there is always a way out. I am doing OK even if it is not easy.
Of course, we have medication but that is a different story.
