Natural Ways to Fight Your Depression

While it is a norm to have a medication for your depression after consulting your physician, there is no denial to the fact that apart from these regular meds, there are some natural ways by adopting which you can get some relief from your depression.

Listed below are some of the few natural methods that I found quite effective.

1. Exercise

When in a depressed mood, this would be the last option that you would consider to go with but studies have proved that exercising helps you relax your mind and gives you a calming effect.

2. Go Out & Explore Different stuff, Get Your Daily Sunshine Dose

You would want to stay inside and lock yourself in one room in the dark when depressed, this you should try to avoid. Gather some energy and go out, explore different things, meet new people and take your daily dose of sunshine which is very important for you in terms of your vitamin D supplements.

3. Do Your Regular Work & Sleep Well

Try to follow your regular routine as much as possible. This keeps you busy in productive things and you are avoided from indulging in negative thoughts.

4. Pet Therapy

Pet therapy is one the most important natural way to overcome depression as you get an unconditional love, support and companion in the form of your pet. They keep you moving all day and give you a good purpose to your life. These specially trained pets are called Emotional Support Animals and you get a license for them to keep them with you at home or anywhere outside.

5. Do Yoga & Deep Breathing

Yoga in combination with deep breathing is a great activity to perform for a depressed person as it enhances the mood and provide a relaxed mentality.


These are a few natural ways for me to overcome depression. Let me know any other natural remedy that you know.

Re: Natural Ways to Fight Your Depression

I think the best way to move away the depression is to make exercises regularly at least half an hour in a day. However, when you feel depressed and anxious you just can't find the motivation for making exercises. At this point, you need help of your family or friends. Since the time I started to live in my mother's I never missed an exercise thanks to her warnings. She's been very supportive and I appreciate it much.

Re: Natural Ways to Fight Your Depression

Finding a passion in life: whether learning the guitar or piano. Learning to cook, riding a bike [with a helmet at all times], going for walks in the countryside, bird watching, painting, writing poems... A hobby - a passion - really helps boost the mood and reduce depression. At mental health places, they encourage people to find a hobby in their lives. Even painting tea cups can help.

Depression is hard to deal with, but it can be managed with the right mental health and recreational treatment. I do have to say, though, the sufferer of depression has to also want to be helped. No one can help someone who doesn't help themselves.

Yes, this is so true! Finding a passion in life really can make a difference as not only it reduces stress, it gives purpose to your everyday life. For example, my passion is art and everyday I think of new ideas of creating artworks. Sometimes the outcomes isn't nice but knowing that I'm improving pushes me more. So nowadays, I always keep myself busy 24/7!
