Oftentimes when we are feeling depressed, we tend to keep quiet. Doing the opposite and talking to someone can actually be more effective. When you keep your feelings bottled up inside it can have negative consequences on your body, mind, and soul.
Finding a trusted friend or family member to talk to lets you get things out in the open and releases some of that negative anxiety.
Get enough sleep. Proper amounts of rest not only contribute to body health, but mental health as well. Symptoms of depression and anxiety are much more extreme when you are suffering from sleep deprivation. If you are suffering from insomnia, try meditation before bed, or talk to your doctor about adding a sleep aid.
