Some people experience at one point in their life the negative feeling of sadness and lack of fulfilment in life. Such emotion, if prolonged, can lead to depression.
Depression is a negative emotion that blocks a person’s ability to enjoy and be satisfied.
When a person is depressed, she lacks enthusiasm towards her day’s activity. She constantly complains on a lot of things, people or circumstances. She worries and gets anxious about the future. She regrets or misses past events.
If you find yourself being trapped in negative emotions and depressions, here are some tips on how to cure your negative emotional tendencies.
1. Think more than you feel
As humans, especially women, we are emotional. We tend to decide and act based on what we feel that we forget to think clearly. Our inability to think before we feel, it results for us to make unwise decisions and actions.
So the next time we are trapped with negative emotion, it is best if we direct our mind to be on top of our heart.
2. Complain less and do more
Commonly, people seek better things. We like to believe that we can achieve perfection. And such belief makes us expect more. And when our expectation weren’t met, we complain. Oftentimes our complaints lead to dissatisfactions and frustrations.
To cure this, practice doing and acting more than you complain. Instead of wasting your time thinking that things aren’t right, invest your time with productive things by doing something that can bring more progress and satisfaction in your life.
3. Count what you are thankful for
Last but not the least ways to cure emotional depression is to count your blessing. Count what you are thankful for instead of what pisses you off. Once you begin counting the positive, the negatives don’t seem to be so bad after all.
If you are struggling with depression at this moment, remember this:
