5 Quick Fixes

Depression Therapy Orlando

Depression Therapy Orlando and five quick fixes for depression. It’s normal to feel depressed every now and then, but that doesn’t mean you should accept the blues and be on your not-so-merry way. Listed below are five mood enhancers that can have you whistling a happy tune instead of singing the blues in no time. Try one or more of them to give your feelings of sadness the boot.

 

1. Exercise

Exercise is a great way to put a smile on your face, so shake your body to shake the blues. Regular exercise will not only put you in a happier frame of mind, it will also help you stay in shape. Health and happiness are two of the finer things in life, so exercise both of these things into your life, if your health permits you to do so.

2. Open the Blinds

When you are feeling down, let the sun shine in. Natural sunlight can jumpstart you into a better mood soon after you see it. You may also benefit by getting imitation sunlight from a full-spectrum light bulb. So when the sun isn’t shining, turn on the light. Depression can create an individual isolating and staying in stale and dark environments.

3. Eat a Little Chocolate

According to James A. Duke, author of “The Green Pharmacy Guide to Healing Foods,” chocolate battles depression. Pop a piece of chocolate in your mouth the next time you want to change your mood from sad to happy. You should feel your blues melt away just as fast as the chocolate.

4. Turn on the Music

Music works like magic to put you in a good mood, so turn it on the next time the blues hit you. Choose tunes you enjoy hearing, but pass up music that contains depressing lyrics. For added happiness, dance to the music.

5. Stop to Smell the Jasmines

Jasmine smells floral and exotic, and when you inhale its pleasant fragrance you feel happy in an instant. You can purchase a jasmine plant and enjoy the smell of the small white flowers the plant produces. You can buy jasmine oil as well. The smell of sweet basil has been known to dispel depression too. Sweet basil is an herb that can be grown, but sweet basil oil is also available. Avoid jasmine and sweet basil if you are pregnant.
