Understand the term Depression
Hi! I’m Dr. Priyanka Srivastava, a Psychologist, practicing in Noida.
Today, let’s understand the term depression. Depression is nothing but a psychological condition that can drain your energy, drive and hope from your life. The things that you once rejoiced may not be pleasurable anymore.

Meanwhile, it is not a simple and an easy way to move out from depression. You need to consult a counseling psychologist or a counselor or a therapist to overcome the symptoms of depression. Yet at the same time, there are certain things you need to avoid and you need to follow when you are moving in this state of depression.

So, There are four things that you need to avoid during this state of depression.

  • Avoid staying alone-  Whenever we are in this depression mode, we generally do not want to interact with the people, do not want to move into the social situations but we recommend that you should move into the social situation so that the feeling of loneliness is being taken care of.
  •  Avoid not seeking help-  Avoid not seeking help means that you need to consult a therapist or a counseling psychologist who will help you to overcome with these symptoms of depression either through online or an offline mode of consultation.
  •  Avoid white foods or processed foods-  Now white foods or the processed foods, they are generally simple carbohydrates that can actually lead to insulin dumping and trigger the process of depression.

Lastly, the products of aspartame.
Aspartame is nothing but an artificial sugar. Eating aspartame can increase the density of depression symptoms and may result in insomnia as well.

Now, What are the things we need to follow during this depression mode?

  •  We need to consume more of omega-3 fatty acids in our diet-  For the vegetarians, we can include flaxseeds, broccoli, in our diet. For non-vegetarians, we can include fish, or fish cod liver oil
  •  Get involved in social settings-  Getting involved in social settings will surely help you move out from this state of depression.
  •  Fix your daily routine-  Fixing the daily routine will help you; motivate you to move out again from this state of depression.
  •  Be positive and be open to the new ideas-  Have a positive thinking then, surely you will come out from this state of mind, and be open to the ideas from the social gathering.

For any other consultation, regarding this depression, you can consult me through Lybrate online and offline mode.
