Before we discuss the causes and remedies for depression/stress. First, we need to identify the depression/stress. The depression is state of mind in which a person feels stranded for doing his given tasks or to accomplish his preset goals. When the self-respect of any person is hurt by someone and he cannot do anything about it or being desperate on any important issue may lead to the depression/stress. Today, we will be discussing about the major causes and methods by which we can get rid of this state of mind peacefully.

  1. Majorly, our circumstances put great influence on our minds. The circumstances in which a person is helpless for doing any important task plays vital role for creating depression for anyone.
  2. The past incidents i.e. demise of any close friend/relative, demise of any pet,accidents; breakup, huge loss in business or other similar worst experiences also had a worse impact on our minds, which causes depression.
  3. Job insecurity also plays vital role for creating depression. A place where your boss always criticizes you and you have always a fear of losing job can definitely affect your mind.
  4. The concern about future is also the reason behind depression. Where a person has no plans for the future and has no saved amount of money for rainy days may also lead to depression.
  5. Person suffering from major deceases i.e. cancer, brain tumor, aids or other similar deceases in which he knows that his chances of survival are less may also lead to the depression.
  6. A person may also suffer from depression due to inherited problems. Some deceases or disabilities are transferred from parents for whom a person cannot do anything.
  7. Community atmosphere also have a great impression on our state of mind. Our friends and relative have a great contribution in our mood swings.
  8. Hopeful for negative results for anything may also lead to depression. Pessimistic approach toward everything is dangerous.
  9. According to my perspective, communicating not enough to any person is the major cause of depression. Most of the time we are not saying enough which creates troubles for us. You have to properly convey the message to your receiver about what you can do and what you cannot do for him. Majorly we get depressed due to the promises we made with our friends/relatives which we cannot do for them.

  1. Our behavior towards any problem is the main factor. It is our behavior that how we tackle with the situation. First of all we need to understand our problems in detail and then should analyze that how come it happen? After that we need to prepare a proper plan to get out of the situation. So, instead of being panic you need to calm down and analyze your problem.
  2. You should be indulging in physical activities. By physical activity here, we do not mean that you should be engaging with gym for 3-4 hours on daily basis. A walk of 30 minutes or an exercise of 10 minutes on regular basis is more than enough to keep you physically and mentally fit.
  3. By changing your life style i.e. changing your opinion about everything, changing your interests or changing your way of thinking can also help you to get rid of depression/stress.
  4. It is observed that normally a person starts to eat unhealthy or junk food in large amount when he is suffering from depression which is a very bad habit. Eating junk food can never bring you out from your problem so avoid it. Always try to eat healthy food.
  5. Depression causes lack of sleep, so a person should forcefully get enough sleep while suffering from depression. As the enough sleep may help a person to analyze the problems and set measurements to get rid of.
  6. Negative thoughts may also lead to depression/stress. Always be hopeful for positive results. Stop over thinking and start living with optimistic thoughts. No matter what results would be.
  7. It has been observed that majorly persons start taking anti-depression medicines without prescription of doctors. Please remember that such kind of medicines could give you relief for short term but for long run it may have worse results. So, always consult your doctor before using any medicine.
  8. If you are have adventure loving nature then try something new on daily basis. It will surely diversify your attention and would calm your mind.
  9. Always try to entertain yourself with your friends and family. And discuss your problems with them. It will surely reduce the depression and you could get some useful advice from them too.
  10. Last but not the least always accepts your boundaries. Most of the time we get depressed when we push ourselves behind our limitations. For example at job we should try to take the responsibilities of only those tasks which you can complete on your own without the help of others.
