You’ve been there before. It’s not like it was one thing that set you off. One little thing after another just kept piling on. Almost like they were sneaking up on you. Then before you knew it… BAM! One more thing topples
the house of cards and you feel like you just can’t take it anymore. Life is so unfair!

We all have our up days and our downer days. It’s only natural. You are not alone. Depression is fairly prevalent in the population and is on the rise.By 2020, it is predicted that Depression will be the second largest killer after heart disease.

Now that is depressing news!

It doesn’t have to be this way however. I will admit that some people have a genetic or chemical predisposition towards depression, DO need medication, and should definitely seek medical help. However, I do believe that the vast
majority of depressed people do not need medication to overcome their own depression symptoms. They just need to get a life! 😉

I truly believe there are ways to remain positive in a sea of doubt. I believe the way to do it is to make some different lifestyle choices…

1. *Get some exercise.*

The benefits of exercise on mood have been well documented. You see, there are these really cool things called endorphins. These are produced when you get your heart rate up and they help you feel less stressed and more in control of your life. They are really neat little mood enhancers and it will benefit you greatly to start a regular exercise routine

2. *Change your diet.*

No, I am not advocating going on a diet. I am saying *change* your diet. The foods you eat really can impact your life. Some foods slow you down, some speed you up. Some make you feel good, others
don’t. Food can sometimes have almost magical properties. Experiment a little. Although it’s expensive I know sushi gives me a good feeling after I eat it. Eliminate some things, add others. Monitor the results. You can see big improvements in this area!

3. *Be social.*

Friends and family have a very important part in helping you maintain your positive attitude. If they are good people, they will be there for you when the going gets rough. Through thick and thin. A strong group of friends is often the best medicine to keep those blues away!

4. *Be active.*

When you are busy working on a project it is hard to get depressed. When you are sitting around doing nothing it’s easy to get depressed. When you are creating value and something constructive for other people or yourself to enjoy it is hard to think about how depressed you are. So get a hobby or something.

5. *Smile at the world, and the world smiles back.*

Fake it till you make it right? Even if you aren’t feeling happy right now if you start forcing yourself to act that way you will start feeling that way. It is amazing how it works. This may be the hardest step to take because it is a mental step and requires the right attitude. Its a way of thinking that believes that even though its rainy today it will be sunny tomorrow. So buck up, lift that chin up, and smile at the world. It just might smile with you. 🙂

This is a five step process that works wonders. Try it before you knock it. It has the power to change your life! And feel free to let us know some other ways you remain positive in a sea of doubt!

    @ Chris – You should try it. Changing up my food choices has led to one of the biggest changes in my health ever. It may be more important that exercise.

    @ Ross – Leading with actions by your body can lead to changes in your state of mind. The mind-body connection shouldn’t be underestimated.

    @ Joe – You are right. Im reminded of another quote. “You’re never fully dressed without a smile.” 🙂

    I was beginning to wonder if I would get any more comments! Thank you guys for visiting and taking the time to comment.

    Cheers,
    Jeremy

    It is really hard to feel crappy when we are smiling. So smiling more will definitely make us feel much better.

  3. Smile, smile, smile! I went to a hypnosis seminar a few months ago and I remember the instructor saying is you are kind of down walk a little bit faster with your head up and a smile on your face…lol I thought it was great!

    Someone asks you how you are doing while you have a big smile on how can you say you feel crappy? Great post!

    “smile at the world and it smiles back” – this reminds me of some core concepts for improving self confidence, also… Smiling, looking and acting calm translates to making you feel calm and positive, and improving your levels of self confidence.. Great tips on positivity, thanks

  5. Re: Diet – you are right. To many people thing that you “go on a diet” so it is a short term thing. A diet is the term to encapsulate the things that you eat all the time, not just when you are trying to loose weight. It really is amazing the impact different foods have on your life, but if you think about it – it does make perfect sense as it is the fuel for everything we do.

    Hi Arswino,

    Thanks for visiting! I think you are right. It is all about our reactions.

    Cheers,

    Good tips, Jeremy. The world is turn around, sometimes we have a bad day and sometimes we have a good day. The problem is not about the condition but in our reaction in facing the problem itself with positive attitudes.
