Its been a while,i`ve been visiting most days but haven`t posted because know one seems to want to converse.
But in these uncertain times i thought i`d like to share how i came to grips with my anxiety/depression problems.
While this may not be of use to you, this is what works for me.
1. don`t watch too much news keep informed but dont over indulge
2.Do the things you enjoy
3.talk to others about how you feel,you are certainly not alone.
4.dont try to be brave and put on an act.dont drink too much.
5.I find adult colouring in books very very relaxing,great for clearing the mind
6.Listen to heaps of music
7. reading is another great mind escape.
8.This one i cant believe i do it.I originally thought it was for wankers and greenies.
well i was wrong this really works for me.mindfulness/meditation
And boy is it easy, quick and relaxing,an excellent mind clearer.
i hope this helps you or someone you love
all the best,Brian
I asked a couple different doctors for medical assistance as I slipped further and further into depression and anxiety. Both said to lose weight and sleep more. Clearly, neither of those docs knew whether the chicken or the egg came first.
I searched for an herbal over the counter substance, and found a compound that works for me. Then I considered meditation and asked a friend who meditates (for anxiety) about it. He knows I am a Christian, so he recommended that I pray an ancient prayer and meditate upon its meaning. The prayer is "Lord, have mercy on me, a sinner." I immediately began to feel relief.
It took about a year, but I'm drinking MUCH less alcohol, I'm not gaining weight and may be losing some, I am beginning to have interest in my hobbies and physical work again, and I'm MUCH less moody. So I guess it's working.
I'm glad that you are seeing improvement in your outlook too, Easybeat. Given my experience, I'd say that everything you said as a method to help is right.
