As the greatest majority of people already knows, depression is one of those conditions that can turn one's life upside down and into a living nightmare. When falling under the influence of first bouts of depression, quite a lot of people are not only unaware of that, but once they do become aware, they cannot recall or determine what exactly brought them about. Well, for all those who are still in the dark, there are three most prominent case-scenarios that have the tendency to induce depression. Due to their severity, each one of them should be analyzed in depth for the purpose of discovering the most prominent and effective ways to bring them under control. These include the following:
- identity crisis
- love-hate dichotomy (inability to resolve a specific conflict of feeling/s)
- a series of extremely stressful events known to lead to situational depression – change of supervisor, financial crisis, business uncertainty, too many worries, family or marriage crisis etc.
One of the steps quite often involves some diet-specific recommendations such as adding up greater quantities of Vitamin B complex, for example, as well as Vitamin D and Magnesium Citrate in order to promote and initiate a much better production of tryptophan, which is definitely the most essential in the process of serotonin creation.
Once these slight dietary changes take off, the following step is to work on coping with the loss of self-esteem, and afterwards, with the most effective ways to get it back and promote it to a most satisfactory level. Quite helpful and also effective is the approach in which a therapist does not encourage a person in question to keep threading on the fighting route, but to embrace depression as an emotion, confirm and make one's resistance sturdier, and complement it all with option training. This specific type of training is aimed at providing a constant reminder for the person in question that he/she always has a number of choices – learn from most immediate experience, draw upsides and benefit from it, ultimately transcending it and embracing novelty in term of interests.
All steps and sessions taken into consideration, the following can be said to be most effective when it comes to defeating depression:
- confirmation of the presence of depression
- learning to embrace the emotion
- acknowledge the resistance to feeling depressed
- aim the creative intelligence for options
