~ The Best Depression Treatment ~

The Best Depression Treatment isn't a drug, or one particular thing.  There are many different things you can chose to do to improve your depression.  The primary thing to understand is that it is not just one thing that will make it better; creating the habit of a different lifestyle as well as coming to truly know, love, understand and accept yourself is crucial.  Know that you are enough and perfect just as you are.  

*If you believe you are depressed, please reach out for help.  If you don't have a doctor or someone you can call, call 911, or call the toll-free, 24-hour hotline of the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (1-800-273-8255); TTY: 1-800-799-4TTY (4889) to talk to a trained counselor.

The Best Depression Treatment...

Exercise

There are many different ways to get exercise into your daily routine.  It doesn't have to take a lot of time, nor do you have to hit the gym.  Simply going for a brisk walk for 20 minutes a day will have a huge impact on your mental health.  This is the first piece of the best depression treatment.

Proper Supplementation

Check with your doctor before beginning any supplement program, especially if you are already taking medications.

If there is one piece of advice that I can give you:

"Do Not Go To Your Local Grocer and Buy What You Think You Need!"

Supplementation includes herbal therapy as well as whole-food therapy.  This is a whole conversation on its own, so if you'd like to learn more about what to do, and not to do, click here. ~ Herbal Treatment for Depression.

clean water and food

This is so important ~ and we all know it.  So what is the hangup with eating crappy foods?

First of all, many people have a metabolism that is out of whack.  This causes cravings for things you don't really want to eat, but you can't control yourself.  When it comes to the best depression treatment, this step tops the charts!

your metabolism! 

Toxicity can also cause you to crave things that are way off the healthy list.  Be sure to drink lots of water each day from clean sources. Click here to learn how to improve your water intake.

Get Adequate Sleep

Your body does a lot of repair and regeneration at night when you are sleeping and is important to helping you rebalance your neurotransmitters in your brain, so figure out what you need to do to get a restful night's sleep.  This is critical when you are looking for the best depression treatment.  You can take the Systems Survey to learn which organ systems are out of balance and may be keeping you from peaceful sleep.

Set A Daily Routine

I know, you already have a daily routine, and it is PACKED with many things to do, and fitting your heath care in is likely not one of them.

I know you...

It is time to take a close look at what you are spending your time doing and evaluate if there are things that you can reduce or stop to make some room for yourself. 

For me personally, I Come First.  It is my personal law.  It has to be, otherwise I simply get left out.  I am a nurturer and like to help others, so it is easy to put everyone else before myself.  Therefore, I get up a little early so I can get my exercise in and pack my food for the day (yep, that means I go to bed a littler earlier too).

If this is not your pattern it will be challenging to get it going, I understand.  Feel free to reach out and get a little support from someone who can be an accountability partner for you.  I am happy to serve that purpose for you when you are ready.  Learn more about my Coaching Services here. 

Set Goals & Reward Yourself!

You've set goals for yourself before, right?  Did it work out?  I am sure sometimes it does, and sometimes it doesn't, especially if you are having bouts of depression.  I so know that story!  

And when it didn't work out, off to the kitchen I go, feeling like a failure, stuffing down the pain with as many Oreos as I could possibly eat.

Don't Go There!!

You no longer have to keep living that horrific pattern.  There is a reason you keep doing these things to yourself and we need to get down to the root of it all.  There is a way to break the patterns on an energetic level so that your physical reality can be more loving and nurturing. This was at the top of my to do list when it came to the best depression treatment for me.  Click here to learn more.

Rewarding yourself is a must!

This seems to be the hardest part of it for most women.  Why it is that we don't tend to want to recognize ourselves for our progress and amazingness is crazy.  

Wouldn't it feel so much better to do things that allow you to see yourself in a powerful, fabulous, sexy, successful new light?  

It just might make setting goals and attaining them much easier if you had something you were working towards.

Be Involved!

One of the signs of depression is becoming a hermit.  Keeping yourself closed off from others is quite harmful and may end up catapulting you down a spiral to hell.  For the best depression treatment, decide what you like to do and get involved in your community.  It could be volunteering, teaching a skill, playing a sport (yes, beginners classes do exist), or joining a Mommy's Club or other group. Whatever you decide, be sure that your socializing extends beyond Face Book.  

Alternative treatment for depression

There are many different alternative therapies and treatments for depression.  I tell people to take a holistic approach; that means try a few different modalities and hit your depression from a few different angles. Now THAT'S the best depression treatment there is!

For instance, for me to stay balanced, it is essential that I get regular chiropractic care, a massage every 4-6 weeks, I have energy work done, and get acupuncture.  My body will tell me what I need and when, but for sure I keep it going an a regular basis.  This is what I call "Self Care".  Again, you must change your mindset to allow yourself to be first in your world. 

It took me a while too, but soon you'll get the hang of it and never go back.

Coaching

It is one thing to say you are going to start a new life for yourself, it is a whole different thing to actually do it.  We have all tried, and I will tell you, without the guides, teachers, coaches and angels that have crossed my path, I certainly would not be alive to tell this story today.  

Do whatever it takes to get support.  You will have far greater success (and much faster too) if you have someone to give you direction, hold you accountable, and cheer you on.  

I coach people in a variety of ways; some people check in with me once a month, others check in once a week.  Whatever your needs are, we can tailor a package just for you.  Regardless if you use my Coaching Services or not, get help from somewhere.  If you are resisting, know that one of the things that is holding you back is likely your desire to "do it on your own"; that is not the fastest way to recovery, just so you know.

Now you can see, the best depression treatment isn't one thing or one pill.  It is how you choose to live your life on a day by day basis.
