5 Simple Steps to a Happier You
Do you know that an estimated 121 million people around the world are currently suffering from some form of depression? And in United States, 1 in every 10 Americans have symptoms of clinical depression and this number increases approximately 20% per year. It is sad that depression can cripple us if not properly addressed. So before we fall to the number of this statistic let’s talk about these simple things we often overlooked but can actually save our sanity.
1. Coping gracefully with change.
Studies show that those people who have gone through divorce and unemployment are more likely to suffer from depression. Coping with these kind life changing events are not easy but we need to keep in mind that change is inevitable. Instead of dwelling on your lost, you can focus your effort with the things that can help you to deal with your situation. I for one, was forced to quit my job; it was so depressing that time because I’m on the peak of my career as an accountant, when I was diagnosed with my health problem and I’m just 26 then. But on that lowest point of my life, I decided to rekindle my passion for writing. Fast forward to present, now writing is my bread & butter.
2. Surround yourself with TRUE FRIENDS.
3. Know who your cheer leader is.
4. Be grateful.
5. Make things happen.
The bottom line is, you cannot expect happiness to come and stay if you are not decided to keep it.
