Dear Lybrate user its difficult to overcome a heart break. one feel very stressed, unhappy and unable to overcome it. You need to give yourself time. have patience, this shall too pass. you must have invested alot in the relationship and when this relationship is no longer exist, it may hurt you alot. so try to give yourself time. second thing you may do is to take helo of someone close to you. pour your heart out to him or her. letting your hurt feelings out helps to feel light and relaxed. try to break your routine and bring Yoga or some form of physical activity in your life, may be dance, aerobics, gyming, yoga or may be regular jogging. this will help you release the pain. physical activity will release happy hormones and make you feel happy. try engaging yourself into your hobbies may be gardening, cooking etc. try these, if things trouble you alot consult a counselor. take care

The word depressed is a common everyday word. People might say" i'm depressed" when in fact they mean" i'm fed up because i've had a row, or failed an exam, or lost my job" etc. These ups and downs of life are common and normal. Most people recover quite quickly. With true depression, you have a low mood and other symptoms each day for at least two weeks The common symptoms are (few might be present in a person with depression) Feelings of sadness, tearfulness, emptiness or hopelessness Angry outbursts, irritability or frustration, even over small matters Loss of interest or pleasure in most or all normal activities, such as sex, hobbies or sports Sleep disturbances, including insomnia or sleeping too much Tiredness and lack of energy, so even small tasks take extra effort Changes in appetite — often reduced appetite and weight loss, but increased cravings for food and weight gain in some people Anxiety, agitation or restlessness Slowed thinking, speaking or body movements Feelings of worthlessness or guilt, fixating on past failures or blaming yourself for things that aren't your responsibility Trouble thinking, concentrating, making decisions and remembering things Frequent or recurrent thoughts of death, suicidal thoughts, suicide attempts or suicide Unexplained physical problems, such as back pain or headaches General medical conditions and substances causing depression also needs to be ruled out.
