10 Tips To Help You Beat The Blues

depression

Major Depression is serious and often needs professional medical intervention. But I am not talking about that.  Sometimes we just feel blue, bummed out, defeated. Here are some tips on how to make yourself feel better when you’re feeling a little depressed:

1. Stay Calm

Even just a little bout of the blues can spiral you down into anxiety. Close your eyes and take a deep breath. Take as many as you need and find your inner peace to stay calm. “This too shall pass” is something I like to remind myself of.

2. Feed your mind ONLY positive thoughts

When things aren’t going well, it’s easy to fall into a vicious cycle of negative thoughts. It’s important that you break this cycle as quickly as possible.  To do that, you need to feed your mind with only uplifting, positive thoughts. As often as you can, read spiritual texts, personal growth books, funny books, motivational books, or inspiring quotes.

Finding the Light: Recovering Addicts Share the Ways They Overcame Depression and Addiction

Addiction can create a vicious cycle when it comes to depression. Dependency on a substance tends to amplify depression on its own — and it can also worsen any underlying issues that contribute to a depression sufferer’s mental health struggles. I spoke with a few recovering addicts who told me that although their habits were meant to be coping mechanisms, their occasional use eventually spiraled into addiction — and it wasn’t until they quit using that they found true mental harmony.

From Hollywood to happy: Ryan’s journey

Ryan’s substance abuse actually began during a happier time in his life — but ultimately it was what caused things to fall apart. After losing multiple work clients, quite a bit of money, and his fiancée, he packed his bags for Los Angeles in hope of a fresh start. Unfortunately, his big move led to him making a lot of the same detrimental decisions he’d made in the past.

How Pesticide Exposure Can Cause Depression and Suicidal Thinking

Pesticide exposure and brain function

Overexposure to pesticides from commercial or even home applications can cause a wide range of health problems.  Overexposure to pesticides may also cause psychological problems such as depression.  Pesticides of the organophosphate and carbamate class usually cause the most significant health problems. Earlier studies have linked pesticide exposure to

many forms of cancer

birth defects

neurological problems

asthma

headaches

sleep apnea

chronic fatigue

multiple chemical sensitivity

and reproductive and sexual problems in men and women.

 

A recent study of 9,811 rural Chinese adults reported that suicidal thinking was 2.1 more common in persons exposed to household pesticides than those not exposed to pesticides.  Results were statistically significant and were adjusted for such factors as income, marital status, age, gender, education and physical health.

Most of the pesticides used by these rural Chinese were of the organophosphate class such as methamidophos (also known as Monitor, Swipe, and Tam). The pesticide-exposed subjects also had significantly higher rates of depression and other mental problems. This research is published in the October 2009 Bulletin of the World Health Organization.

Indoor spraying of pesticides should be avoided if at all possible.  Insects can often be treated by less toxic measures including indoor cleanliness, use of pesticide traps instead of sprays and use of less toxic pesticides like boric acid.

While harmful amounts of pesticides can be absorbed through the digestive track from food and water, the majority of people get their biggest pesticide exposure through the skin or the lungs from indoor or outdoor exposures.  Many pesticides can readily enter the body through the skin or lungs.  Reducing exposure to pesticides sprayed indoors and outdoors is critical for maintaining good brain health.
