Stress and depression are two of the most devastating forms of illness one can endure. They’ll kill your confidence, motivation and self-esteem in the blink of an eye and once you’re in that place it is incredibly difficult to relieve yourself of stress and depression and get back to a normal way of living.
Because of the world we now live in both stress and depression are becoming more and more common a daily basis either individually or combined.

Do Something Positive
When you’re suffering from stress and depression it is very easy to pick up bad habits and ultimately do nothing with your time apart from sitting there feeling sorry for yourself. Whilst everyone is entitled to a bit of “down time” it is not in your best interests to be feeling like this for any longer than you absolutely have to and therefore the first port of call is to do something POSITIVE.
I find exercise to be a great reliever of stress and depression as not only does it make you feel good there is a science element to it as well. The body reacts very positively to a good workout and as you may well know, a healthy body leads to a healthier mind.
If you don’t feel like exercise then there are probably lots of different activities you can do instead. Just pick something that you enjoy and go for it! Don’t sit back and wait for things to get worse, take action today and start making that all important move in the right direction…
Talk, Talk and Talk
Now I only have two tips for you but trust me, if you combine these two methods of releasing stress and depression you will feel that the weight of the world has been lifted off your shoulders!
Stress and depression tend to get much worse if you don’t get some of your feelings off your chest and the only way to do this is to talk things over with a close friend or family member. You’ll find that by simply exploring what is going on inside your head a little bit you’ll feel the world of good and will no doubt take home some great advice too!
Remember – You can beat stress and depression!
