Depression and Anxiety can hit us in any directions, especially in this current situation we’re all facing. As this new normal to us are so frustrating to the point that sometimes we over analyze things around. So in this post, I would like to share my process on how I cope my anxieties and depression before.
Without further ado, lets read straight to the list!
Yes, meditation is a very big help and an impact whether you have anxiety or if you want to calm your mind from the hectic way of life. Meditate for 10-20 minutes and mindfully feel your chest expanding as you inhale and exhale God’s free oxygen. Feel your breath! Let your thoughts come whether its a positive or negative response feel it freely and if you didn’t like what you were thinking change it. You had the power over to that.
You don’t need to be cozy & fancy to meditate, just close that door in your room and sit.
Meditation is a great help, but with prayer and thanksgiving to God everyday the moment woke up. You will feel things are right in places, because you set yourself that you started your day with Him. Don’t forget to read His words too, in this digital age there’s some apps we can download on our devices for free and stay connected with God.
Journaling things around you, are highly beneficial on our brain for its thoughts was out and you had it in record. On which for the long run you can analyze and understand things when it comes to your strength and weaknesses when this problem occur. Write them on your old notes, on your notepad in your computer or phone, or not voice record it and save them on Drive.
4. Get Out
Yes! Uh-huh. Get out for a while, it can be in your room, in your bed, in that phone. Just get out for a while, turn that phone off, leave your bed, close that room and go outside, water some plants, talk to them, if not go out with your dog or take a walk but please practice safety measures and wear a mask for your health protection when you step outside the house.
Connect, Re-connect whatever we call it when you know things you can’t handle all by yourself anymore, connect with people. Call them, send a 1 min chat, or ask anything. You will know who will be on your side, and you will see people still care on you. Don’t let those moment put yourself down. Connect and seek! You are more than what you think. ❤️
