How to get through au­tumn de­pres­sion

Azer News - - Miscellaneous - By Sara Is­rafil­bay­ova

EThere can be sev­eral rea­sons for the melan­choly, but all of them lead to dis­rup­tion of the pro­cesses oc­cur­ring in the body, caus­ing ap­a­thy, ir­ri­tabil­ity, ab­sent-mind­ed­ness, loss of strength and even sleep prob­lems.

In au­tumn the num­ber of sunny days is sig­nif­i­cantly re­duced, they are re­placed by cloudy and rainy week­days. The thing is that the sun has a sig­nif­i­cant ef­fect on our bod­ies. Sun­light is the best nat­u­ral an­tide­pres­sant, which relieves melan­choly and gives a sense of hap­pi­ness.

This is due to the fact that ul­travi­o­let ra­di­a­tion from the sun re­leases en­dor­phins - "feel-good" hor­mones.

What to do and how to live, so that there is no de­sire to climb un­der the blan­ket, to dis­con­nect the mo­bile and not to see any­one?

Be­low are sev­eral sug­ges­tions how to avoid sea­sonal de­pres­sion:

Let there be light. Walk more in the street when it's light when there is sun. At home, too, try to be less in the twi­light, es­pe­cially in the morn­ing this is im­por­tant. As soon as you wake up open the cur­tains, turn on the day­light bright lamps.

Kill Stress. Not ev­ery­one has a sea­sonal de­pres­sion. As a rule, peo­ple who have a ge­netic pre­dis­po­si­tion are in­clined to it. It's about the prob­lem of pro­duc­ing neu­ro­trans­mit­ters - sub­stances in the brain that are re­spon­si­ble for our emo­tions.

One of the main rea­sons of de­pres­sion is stress. Each per­son has four spheres of life - health, money, in­ter­per­sonal re­la­tions and so­cial sphere. If there are prob­lems in one of the spheres, it can be­come a cat­a­lyst, the last straw.

A per­son should find the cause of stress and do ev­ery­thing to elim­i­nate it.

Do sports. Sport is a great way to cope with de­pres­sion. But only if you of­ten go to the gym and keep in shape.

Make a sched­ule. To keep your­self in hand, you need to build a clear life sched­ule. At what time you go to work, come back, when you eat, rest, go to bed. The rhythm of life will al­low you not to be­come limp.

Travel. If you man­aged to grab a va­ca­tion in a rainy sea­son, go on a trip. Even if no one will make you a com­pany, this is an ex­cel­lent oc­ca­sion to make new ac­quain­tances.

Be kind to your­self. This one can be hard, es­pe­cially if you are one of the many who has very high ex­pec­ta­tions of your­self. But, the truth is that most peo­ple feel the rip­ple of change and so it makes sense that you may be­gin to feel a bit un-moored at this time. When you beat your­self up for feel­ing out of sorts, it adds a whole new level of dis­tress.

Add color to your home. This is kind of a ma­te­ri­al­is­tic one, but this may be a great time to add color and bright­ness. Those of us who live in the land of sea­sons get a burst of color and then all of the color in our en­vi­ron­ment seems to dis­ap­pear. Recharg­ing your en­vi­ron­ment may help to keep your spir­its up.

Ev­ery per­son, whether man or wo­man, knows what can make him/her happy in any day of the week or time of the day.

Work on your­self, grow pro­fes­sion­ally, do some­thing new, im­prove your emo­tional level and the re­sult is a life with­out de­pres­sion.
