Depression is one of the major problems among us. Many people are affected by depression. I’m gonna describe What exactly depression is? And, how to overcome depression and anxiety.
What is Depression?
Depression is when either your body has turned against you or your mind has turned against you. When you cannot control your mind when the mind enters the world of negative thought. You feel low, unmotivated, and cause the lack of self confidence or self belief.
Depression is caused by two reasons:- Psychological and Physical disorder.
It means these are not working for you. So, it comes from your inner body, then your inner body will fix it. You do not need to take medicines for this.
Reasons that cause Depression
Now, I am telling you about psychological and physical reasons of depression:-
1. PSYCHOLOGICAL DISORDER:-
This means that you are not well at the level of the mind. It is because of the overthinking of negative thinking on a regular basis. OverThinking is not a problem but if there is no clarity in thinking, conflict in thinking, then thinking is a problem.
Bad or poor quality of thought reduces your energy and ruins your confidence. and then depression occurs.
This disorder occurs when you can’t manage your brain system properly. because of this your external work starts affecting, your relationship starts to deteriorate, you are not able to live your life properly and peacefully.
And because of the mismanagement of all these activities, you create more stress. And gradually it becomes your habit, due to which it creates the form of depression. Ignore these unwanted and poor habits to save your life and form new and effective habits. Take the 21-day habit challenge.
2. PHYSICAL DISORDER:-
This means that you are not well at the level of the body. As we all know 80% of body problem is because of your stomach. Poor Digestion occurs because of unhealthy and improper diet. The poor digestive system creates toxic chemicals, gases in our body, and mind which affects different parts of our body and we feel sick.
Also, because of these toxic gases or chemicals, there are many types of diseases that occur in the body. Your mind is also part of the body. So, Your mind too doesn’t work properly.
HOW “MIND AND STOMACH” ARE CONNECTED TO EACH OTHER?
If you Overthink negative thinking on a regular basis, it will create stress, fear, pressure in your mind and it will directly affect the breathing pattern. Either you will start breathing fast or slowly.
Both are not right for our bodies. Changing in breathing pattern can affect the amount of oxygen which is necessary for our body. Also, our heart will not pump accurately. These can directly affect our immune system and this is not good for digestion.
Food will not digest due to the poor Digestive system. This causes low energy in our body which creates sickness, laziness. And, because of this, many diseases occur in the body like constipation.
As we know the large intestine continuously absorbs water from food. Those water becomes toxic because of constipation and starts spreading in the whole body and also in the brain.
“CONSTIPATED STOMACH CREATES CONSTIPATED MIND”
Some internal chemicals get blocked in our minds which is responsible for feeling happy and excited. And because of this, your mind stops thinking right and feeling good. After sometimes it becomes your habit and the person feels depressed.
Overcome Depression with Medication?
When a depressed person starts taking medicines, those medicine starts releasing artificial chemicals in the brain and the person feels happy, excited, and confident and the mind feels relaxed.
But when you start taking medicine daily, your mind can’t feel relaxed with the same dose. That’s why the dose of medicine increases in a regular interval. And the person has to take medicine for a lifetime.
This type of medicine has many side effects which slowly weakens the mind and body of the person. It decreases thinking capacity, weakens memory power, reduces the ability to endure anything.
