    Coping with depression – Best personal injury advice in Kingston-upon-Thames

    If you have been overly stressed or picked on at work, then depression can be a natural side effect of this. Depression can actually be one of the most damaging types of injuries you can receive from work problems, as it lasts a long time and can reoccur at any time.

    Because it is not widely understood, it can be difficult to know how to treat it as well. Here are some tips on coping with depression.

    Stay Active

    Depression is an illness that makes you want to retreat from the world and just stay in bed. At times it can seem almost impossible to leave your bed and go out, especially if you are no longer at work. You will find, though, that if you do get out as often as you can, you’ll feel better for it. And if you make it out a few times a week you should sense your depression lifting a little.

    Get Into A Routine

    As mentioned above, depression leaves you wanting to do nothing more than stay in bed. The best thing to can do for this is to make a routine and stick to it. Fill up your days with things to do, even if it is just small tasks like taking the bins out. But don’t beat yourself up if you fall out of your routine one day. Doing this will just make you feel worse about yourself and start the pattern over again.

    Avoid Alcohol

    If you have been placed on antidepressants then you may have already been told to avoid alcohol. But even if you haven’t you should steer clear of alcohol and non-prescribed drugs. Alcohol creates a temporary happiness that can make you dependent, especially as this lift is often followed by a crash as you sober up.
