How to Overcome Sadness, Depression and Anxiety – 7 Things To Do When You Feeling Down

Hi lovers!
Welcome to our brand new video! Today we’re gonna teach you :
7 Things To Do When You Feeling Down From time to time, we all get a little down,
maybe even a little depressed. Maybe we are feeling overwhelmed, or feel bad because we’re
not doing well with our goals. There are many reasons for feeling down, and I’m not qualified
to discuss all of them, their implications, or clinical treatment. What I can talk about
are some things that have worked for me. Feeling a little depressed can interfere with
achieving our goals. We know we should be doing something, but we just don’t feel
like doing anything. This can last for a long time if you don’t head it off as soon as
possible and take action. Here are some of the things that work best for me:
1. Make a list. Sometimes we are depressed simply because
we are overwhelmed with all the things we have to do that we haven’t gotten around
to doing. You might be into GTD. GTD or Get Things Done is the proven path for getting
in control of your world, and maintaining perspective in your life. Much more than a
set of tips for time management and organization. This method described in a book of the same
title by productivity consultant David Allen. Sometimes every GTDer falls behind with his
system, and sometimes you just don’t have the energy to do so. So all the “stuff”
that’s in our head can overwhelm us. Start simply by picking up a piece of paper and
a pen, and making a list of the most pressing things you have to do. Sometimes it’s work
stuff, sometimes it’s stuff around the house that’s bothering us, sometimes it’s goal
tasks, or a combination of these and more. Simply making a list can be a big relief — you’re
getting things under control. You can see, right in front of you, what you need to do,
and that alone can pick up your mood. 2. Take action.
You’ve made a list, and you still feel overwhelmed? Well, get started on the first thing you need
to do. Is it a big task? Break it down and just do the smallest task, something just
to get you started. Once you get started, once you get into action, you’ll feel better.
Trust me. You might still feel overwhelmed, but at least you’re doing something. And
once you start doing something, you’ve got momentum, and that feels much better than
lying around feeling sorry for yourself. 3. Exercise.
I know, you might not be in the mood for exercise. But just do it! Taking a walk, going for a
run, going to the gym, whatever it is you do for exercise — get out and do it now!
You don’t need to do a real hard workout, but the simple act of exercise can lift your
mood immediately. Just do it! 4. Shower and groom yourself.
Laying around in your underwear, smelling bad, is not going to do you any good. Simply
showering, and feeling clean, can do wonders for your mood. Brush your teeth, comb your
hair, shave, do whatever it is that you need to do to feel clean and good about yourself.
Instant pick me up! 5. Get out of the house and do something.
Sometimes, if you stay home lying around, feeling depressed, just getting out (after
showering and grooming) will change your mood. Staying home all the time can really get you
down, and you may not realize this until you go out and do something. Preferably something
on your list. 6. Play some lively music.
I like Brown Eyed Girl, the Kinks, the Ramones, or an upbeat Beatles tune, but you might have
your own brand of feel-good music. Whatever it is, crank it up, and let yourself move
to the beat. It may just be what the doctor ordered. 7. Talk about it.
Got a significant other, best friend, family member, co-worker you can talk to? Bend their
ear. That’s what they’re their for. If you don’t, there are hotlines, or professionals,
you can talk to. And then there’s always online forums. These are great places to find
someone to talk to. Getting things off your chest makes a big difference, and can be a
huge lift. It can also help you work out the reasons you’re feeling down.
