According to Wikipedia, depression is feelings of severe despondency and dejection. It is also a long and severe recession in an economy or market.

Lately, a lot of people are been depressed or are depressed but they don’t want to open up, they are there just dying in silence, I ask again why?
From my own point of view, this thing is beginning to take a big part of most peoples live now, who should we blame it on, the poor economy of the country or is it just our own mindset? I’ve noticed that  a lot of people don’t take their health seriously when it comes to things like this. When you are depressed you should be able to open up and let people know where and how to help you out.

Here are some ways one can actually overcome depression

Getting the quality amount of sleep is good for our body and mind. Sleep deprivation is a cheap distraction for depression.


If you can do it, try one hour of cardio (or as much as you can).


Many times we’re making ourselves sad for no good reason at all. You need to forgive people and move on so that you can be happy. When you forgive, you rescue yourself from this pressure and put yourself in a position to be happier.

Always complaining about one thing or the other, always hard to please can cause us to be sad. Most times we just don’t count our many blessings. Sit down and make a list of what you’re grateful for right now you’ll be glad you did.


This is a huge issue, we don’t drink enough water. The days when you drink only 1 cup of water, you don’t feel as good as when you drink 2-3 liters , you’re happy and active.

Taking time out with friends

This is your life force, support system, and everything that matters. It’s easy to make friends if you put the time in, go all out and have fun. Begin by listening, appreciating and loving, and it will come back to you.

Being depressed can make you feel helpless,irritable and suicidal you’re not alone, I urge you to speak out, open up and let people help you out along side with therapy and sometimes medication, you still have a lot of beautiful life to live.
