If you’re looking for ways to reduce depression I’m really glad you on this page. What I am about to share with you are ways in which you can help yourself if you are suffering from depression that can help you lessen the symptoms and help you get on with your life. Feel free to check them out and see what you can use to help yourself at the moment.
Anti-depressants are one way in which you can reduce depression if you are suffering with it. There are many different types of anti-depressants so if one doesn’t work for you it’s possible that another one will. Different people seem to react differently to the drugs so it’s largely about being patient if you want to see a result. I believe these types of drugs are best when they are used to afford you some time and space to look at counselling and other healing modalities. It has even been suggested that mild to severe depression might be better treated by looking at alternatives to antidepressants. In a study by Robert DeRubuis of the university of Pennsylvania, he says, “they would have done just as well or just about as well on a placebo” when talking about his research group after they took two commonly prescribed anti-depressants.
If you are looking for ways to reduce depression one of the best things you can do is look at some different counselling options that are available to you to help with your depression. The most common therapy that is used in the UK is cognitive behavioural therapy, largely because it can get you quick results and it’s the one that the doctors recommend most often. There are however a whole range of therapies out there that can help you reduce depression. The best therapies in my opinion will offer you some awareness where you can get a better handle on what is going on for you and they will also offer you some way in which you can shift the troublesome energy of depression. There is also research out there to support the benefits of counselling on depression as evidenced by reports of prenatally depressed women experiencing a reduction in depression after cognitive behavioural therapy intervention (Rothman et al).
Over the past few years there has been a rise in popularity in a number of energy therapies that have been used to reduce depression along with other troublesome emotions. Therapies like TFT, EFT and TAT are based on our energy systems as it is understood by Chinese medicine and can be used to clear emotions that are stuck inside of us causing things like depression. The therapies work by thinking about what is bothering you and then tapping along or stimulating different meridian lines in order to find relief. The results that people have achieved using these therapies are simply remarkable and as it freely available and simple to try it’s definitely worth tying on whatever depressive issues you are suffering with. One of the keys to success with using these types of therapies is to be specific about what you are tapping on and to really think about what it that is is bothering you as you are tapping. A simple search on Google or on u tube will give you a rundown of the tapping points that you can use to get the process started.
I believe if you look deep enough behind any emotional problem that you will find one emotion behind it that is driving it. The trouble is though that many of us are unaware of this emotion that may be driving all our pain. If you are suffering with depression at the moment, one thing you can try to gain awareness of this emotion is to ask yourself what the deepest thing is that you are feeling. If you are patient you may notice an answer coming into awareness in the shape of a thought or image. This can be the start of your emotional healing and when the conscious mind gets an awareness of what happened in the past that is causing emotional pain in the present it can really help to reduce depression and all emotional pain.
