Top 5 Tips to cure Depression!

Depression does not refer to feeling sad. The word depressed is being used very lightly. Teens these days fail to understand the deeper meaning of this concept. Some people take it as an excuse for poor behaviour which is a myth. Depression is a real thing and to treat depression, first, you need to diagnose it.

Here are some symptoms of depression:

  1. Poor performance at work/school

  2. Withdrawing from social interactions (In case of introverts, this is related to their close friends)

  3. Intake of alcohol and sedatives

  4. Losing interest in usually enjoyable activities

  5. Inability to concentrate

  6. Feelings of unhappiness for a prolonged period of time

  7. Complaints of extreme fatigue even without too much physical exertion

  8. Eating disorders

  9. Sleeping disorders

  10. Talking or writing about suicide

It is a combination of these symptoms not the presence of a single one. Also remember, the feeling of unhappiness when continues for a period beyond 2 weeks might be depression.

Do not confuse your regular emotions with depression.
