If you’re like most people, some days you feel on top of the world, yet other days you just don’t feel like getting out of bed. For some it’s possible to sweep these feelings under the mat yet for others it is an all-consuming sense of helplessness. One thing’s for sure though – depression sucks!
Next time you’re feeling down, try implementing these tips into your life. They’re simple, natural and could make a world of difference!
Get in a routine
One of the worst things about depression is that it eats away at the structure of your life. Committing to a daily morning walk or even a weekly shopping trip will help you focus and get your mind back on track.
Depression can leave you with a head full of nasty thoughts. Fight them off by setting achievable and realistic daily goals and congratulating yourself as you achieve them. They can be anything from doing the dishes to getting outside once a day. As you improve you can make them more challenging.
It’s been proven time and time again - exercise creates feel-good, mood boosting endorphins. We’re not saying it’s a cure, but it’s definitely a start!
The age old saying ‘you are what you eat’ has never been more relevant when it comes to battling depression. Packing your diet full of fruits, veggies and other healthy foods can make you feel much better on the inside and out! For an extra boost of natural goodness try a dose of Pure Chimp Super Tea once a day. The l-theanine rich matcha green tea has magical mind improving powers that encourage alpha-wave activity in the brain which is proven to reduce stress and lower blood pressure.
Get enough sleep
Beauty sleep is more important than ever for sufferers of depression and anxiety. Even the happiest of people get irritated when they don’t catch enough z’s.
Try natural supplements
There are a lot of opinions floating around about natural supplements - fish oil, folic acid tablets, omega 3, vitamin D and St John’s Wort to name a few. If you want to try a tried and tested pick-me-up give our Super Tea a go.
The worst thing you can do is be too hard on yourself. Get out there and enjoy life as much as you can. It may seem hard when you are depressed but as you start to see results having fun will get easier every day!
