How to Naturally Heal from Depression

Five Natural Ways to Heal from Depression Effectively

 

Depression is a condition that people experience at many points in their lives. It is a psychiatric disorder characterized by an inability to concentrate, appetite loss, sadness, insomnia, helplessness, and hopelessness. As most people are prone to experience this condition occasionally, there are those who feel depressed more consistently and have to seek professional help. Depression as a medical condition is caused by an imbalance of neurotransmitters caused by a diet that lack proper vitamins and minerals. While many people take medicine and other treatment to deal with this condition, there are numerous natural ways to heal from depression effectively. Let us explore 5 natural ways.

 

Join a support group

 

One of the most common manners people deal with depression is to isolate themselves. Isolation is wrong because you need the moral support of the people who love you most. Joining a support group is an effective way to get over depression because you can talk to other people who are going through a similar situation.

 

Maintain a positive outlook in life

 

Keeping a positive outlook is a good practice to regularly do as it minimizes the occurrence of depression. When you maintain a positive outlook, you regularly strive to understand how your mind operates. It also allows you to realize what your purpose is in life; what goals you have and what you have already achieved. A great way to achieve a positive outlook is through constant meditation.

 

Use natural remedies

 

Natural remedies such as herbal remedies have been used since ancient times to cure depression. There are many herbal remedies that are very affordable and accessible. These remedies are:

 

  • Melissa Officinalis. This herb has been used in ancient times to combat depression, especially anxiety.
  • Golden Root. Another effective herbal treatment for depression is Golden Root or Rhodiola Rosea as it works to improve your moods.
  • Damiana. Otherwise known as Tumera Diffusa, Damiana is a mild anti-depressant that if regularly taken, will improve mental stamina and mood.
  • Bananas. These fruits work wonderfully for curing depression because when they are digested into your system, they create serotonin which improves your mood and allows you to relax.
  • Mangoes. Similar to bananas, mangoes can also improve your mood as they also convert into serotonin when you digest them.

 

Keep yourself busy

 

A lot of people become depressed because of boredom. When your mind is idle, you can end up getting depressed because you have nothing to look forward to. Even if you have no urges to do anything, you must push yourself to do something. Take up a new hobby or learn a special skill such as knitting or sculpting is a great way of keeping yourself pre-occupied.

 

Follow a religion

 

Religion gives people a purpose in life. There are numerous religions that give you a direction in life. These religions also provide you with important teachings and many wonderful life lessons.

3 Ways to Get Fit With a Jump Rope

Monday, May 11, 2015 1:38:35 PM America/Los_Angeles

 

If you haven't jumped rope since grade school, you're missing out. This kid-friendly piece of fitness equipment is portable, simple to use, and takes the work out of working out. No wonder it's earning rave reviews among trainers these days. 

"Jumping rope is my all-time-favorite best-bang-for-your-buck workout," says Leanne Shear, a personal trainer and cofounder of Uplift Studios in New York City. "It offers a huge burst of cardio; improves endurance, stamina, and speed; and the great part is, it's a very intense workout that requires very little time." Shear also touts it as a supplemental exercise for those times when you're not in the mood to go for a run or hit up yet another cycling class. "It's also good to do a minute of jumping rope between strength-training sets," she says. "Just five to 10 minutes a day is enough to start seeing benefits."

Ready to give it a try? Before you do, note that jumping rope can be harder on the body than you remember from when you were a kid. "Make sure to stretch, especially your quads, hamstrings and calves," says Shear. Once you're appropriately limbered up, grab a rope and give these three variations a try. 

Classic jumping rope: With your fit spread hip-width apart, jump rope with both feet, moving the rope around your body with your wrists and keeping a fast but steady pace. Your hips should remain level as you jump.

One-foot jumping: Do the same move as above, but hop on one leg, then the other, which helps improve balance and strengthen leg muscles. "I alternate a minute on one leg, then a minute on the other," says Shear. 

Lateral jumps: Jump rope fast with your feet together, but add in a side-to-side motion. "This works the lateral muscles of the legs and also gets in a little shot at the obliques," says Shear.
