    How to fight depression and make accident claims after an accident

    Recovering from an accident can often mean that you go through a period where you feel a little stressed or depressed. It is only when this period of upset lasts for longer than a couple of weeks that you need to worry, and in this case you need to be doing what you can to recover from your depression, either by talking to a professional or following a few simple tips for dealing with it at home. You should always go to your doctor if you are starting to feel suicidal, or having thoughts about harming yourself.

    • Get some exercise. Often when you are depressed, exercise will be the last thing that you want to do. However, exercise, even the most mild forms of exercise, gives you a dose of endorphins that naturally make you feel happier. Many people who are depressed have found that after just 15 minutes of light exercise they are feeling much more in control and happy.
    • Know what your problems are. It is very often the case than people are depressed without actually understanding why they are feeling down. Sit down and try to think about what your troubles actually are, then think about what you can do to change them. Anything that cannot be changed you should try to stop thinking about.
    • Be creative. A creative activity just as writing or drawing can be a very simple way to make you feel more in control and express your emotions. Sit down with a pad of paper and some pens and see what happens. It doesn’t need to make sense at first, because as you get more into it you will find that thoughts and images begin to form that are a way of releasing your tension.
    • Eat well. Good nutrition can do as much for the mind as it can for the body, so make sure that you are eating plenty of fruit and vegetables, and not bingeing on junk food because you are depressed.
