Depression and anxiety-Tips to stay Emotionally Healthy

How do you feel when you physically work more, say by overexerting yourself on a hot day, driving for hours around or staying up for 24 hours finishing work? Physically weak, right? You shouldn’t be surprised also if your body suddenly “breaks down”. And to make up for it, you obviously give your body the much awaited rest it requires. Also when it comes to a cut or a sprain, you take necessary medication to treat yourself right?

Well your mind is subject to the same rules as your body. Just like your physical health, your mind can also only take so much stress before it breaks down. Yet many of you tend to neglect your emotional health as most of the time you just expect to get over psychological break down on its own. But what you all forget is emotional injury can be just as crippling as physical ones. So it’s very important to keep nurturing your mind and keep it as healthy as your body.

Give your negative thoughts a positive direction:

When you keep thinking about stressful events continuously or try to solve a problem, you’re just brooding, and that can lead to deeper psychological pain. The best way to tackle these unhealthy thoughts is by engaging your mind to positive things – like visiting school memories, looking back to childhood photos, talking to a friend about random college stuff. You can also take time out to play mind games like Sudoku or crossword that way your mind would get worked up in doing something productive.

Express Gratitude:

We often come across to posts on social media sites that urge us to be thankful to life. We read, scroll and forget about it completely. What we don’t forget and keep doing is concentrating on the things that we don’t have. But if you pay attention to what you have, you will realise a lot of people around you still pray for such stuff. The best way to harness the positive power of gratitude is to keep a gratitude journal or list, where you actively write down exactly what you’re grateful for each day or week. Doing so will make you feel positive about life and contribute to greater optimism.

Keep working on your goals:

Failure, whether at work front or relationships can often drive you to focus on what you can’t do. These kinds of thoughts hinder you to go out there and perform at your best. To stop this sort of emotional barrier, learn to ignore the demoralized feeling. Instead make a list of factors that you can control, polish your shortcomings before trying to reach for the goal again. Prepare well, plan each step to improve your move. All this will help you improve your chances of future success.

Recognize the emotional pain and treat it:

If rejection from a job, failure on a project or fights in relationship is making your mood worse, it means you’ve sustained a psychological wound and you need to treat it. May be you are behaving rude with your parents for reasons that have nothing to do with them or you are unable to concentrate at work because of a recent failure, you have to identify what’s causing all this and work on them. For example, talk to your parents or your dear ones to vent out your problems or consider the failures as stepping stone to success. As we discussed in the beginning of the post, don’t be in the notion that mental block would get sorted on its own. Identify and give it all the care it needs.
