Breaking The Chains Of Anxiety And Depression – 5 Ways To Help Yourself

Breaking The Chains Of Anxiety And Depression – 5 Ways To Help Yourself

So many people suffer from anxiety or depression nowadays. It seems like there is not much you can do, and it looks like every day is so difficult. You’re the master of your life and you can do a lot more for yourself.

One small crack does not mean you are broken, it means that you were put to the test and you didn’t fall apart. – Linda Poindexter

Giving Up Is Not An Option

If you’re suffering from anxiety or depression, you know that it feels like you’re constantly fighting with yourself.

It feels like nothing in your life is good, and you just feel tired.

You’re not motivated to ask for help, and you’re not motivated to help yourself.

I want to remind you that giving up is not an option. I know it’s hard and I know you just want a break.

You deserve better than this, but you can’t hide from yourself. That’s why you need to take matters into your own hands.

Some things will help you to run away from anxiety and depression. Maybe it will catch up on you sometimes, but you keep running.

Before we start talking about self-help tricks, please talk to people about these problems.

Ask for professional help if you can. Talk to your friends or family. Find a support group.

Trust me – sharing your issues will help you a lot. You will feel supported.

1. Don’t Pretend That You’re Okay

So many people are depressed and anxious, but they refuse to admit it.

They lie to themselves and they keep pretending that they’re happy.

Not being negative can be a good way to fix your mood, but depression and anxiety are way more serious things to handle.

Pretending that you’re okay and ignoring your feelings won’t help you. It will destroy your chances for progress.

It’s good to have faith that you will win, but don’t lie to yourself that you’re currently fine.

2. Be Busy

Many people think that being busy means working all the time.

But being busy in this situation means keeping your mind occupied with some useful activities.

Depressed and anxious people think about everything and everyone all the time. Their minds are burdened and heavy.

Finding some activities that will take your mind off some things is very helpful.

If you’re unemployed, try to find a job or a hobby. Find an activity that will be interesting for you.

If you already have a job, find something that will help you decompress.

Try to spend time with positive people. Try to watch some funny movies too.

Another great way to stay busy is to take care of your body, mind, and your home.

Cleaning is often challenging for depressed and anxious individuals, but it helps a lot.

So, force yourself to take a shower and wash the dishes. Force yourself to put on a clean shirt.

Forcing things doesn’t sound good, but remember – you’re in a war. You have to take this seriously.

3. Take Care Of Your Diet & Sleep Schedule

This advice sounds basic and useless, but you have no idea how important it is.

When you sleep your body and mind are resting. You’re charging your batteries.

It’s important to sleep enough. It’s also good if you could sleep at night.

Regular sleep will help you to feel energized and focused. It will be easier to handle your problems when you’re well-rested.

When it comes to diet, you have to do some research about the food. You need healthy food that will fuel your body with all the nutrients.

You need food that will give you energy. Food can heal you if you know what to eat.

Give it some time, and you will notice that regular sleep and good food can make a difference.

4. Spend Some Time In The Nature


Nature is healing and powerful. Besides calming effects, spending time outside will allow you to breathe some fresh air and get some Vitamin D from the Sun.

Your health will thank you for being outside. Your eyes will be rested by the beauty of nature.

Your mind will be clear and you will feel connected to this world. You will feel like you have a chance to fix things.

Nature can help you to understand the meaning of life. It can fix the broken pieces of your soul.

5. Spend Time With Good Souls

I can’t advise you to surround yourself with people because that won’t help unless you choose good people.

So many people around us are toxic, and even though it seems like it’s better to socialize, sometimes it’s better to be on your own.

If you want to help yourself to overcome anxiety and depression, spend some time with good souls.

Spend some time with people who truly love you. Spend some time with animals because their energy is always inspiring.

You need to remind yourself that there are so many creatures in this world who want to see you happy and well.

Remind yourself that you will be a winner. You will find a way to get to the other side.

I’ve mentioned before that some of these tips may seem basic and old, but they will help you if you accept them.

Every little thing matters, and even though these tips might not cure your depression and anxiety, they will help.

You will feel better and you will feel more hopeful about your recovery.

People are different and there are probably so many other things that could help you, but that’s something you should explore on your own.

Start with the basic tricks and you will see that every little step matters. Every action counts because healing is a process that can’t happen right away.
