Dealing with depression can be debilitating. You may find yourself unable to do things that you used to do easily, all because the depression has taken over your life. Depression is very real and shouldn't be ignored. However, there are some things that you can do to better manage your depression to take control of your life again. Here are some tips.
1. Identify Your Triggers
The first thing you need to do is recognize what things are making your depression worse.
If you spent a day at the beach in the hot sunshine and are now feeling really miserable, there is a chance you may have heat exhaustion. This is a condition that can occur from being in the sun for too long, and it can be dangerous. If you have a high fever, muscle cramps, dizziness, and nausea, you may want to have someone take you to an urgent care center for help.
