Singapore is a particularly a challenging city to live in. It is currently on the brink of technological, social and economic upheaval and there is a lot of pressure on people to stay in touch and get updated with what is happening. This is the main reason why people might find themselves in a chronic depression. This is a mental condition which drains up someone’s energy, drive, vigour and hope and it makes it hard for someone to cope with their regular, day-to-day affairs.
Now, there are plenty of different reasons apart from the aforementioned which could actually lead to a depression. However, overcoming it isn’t as easy as you might want it to be. Even though it could be hard and challenging, it’s also far from being impossible. A lot of people, though, tend to sit still and just wait for the condition to go away. That’s not coping, that’s ignoring the issue. You need to undertake a proactive attitude toward the problem and get it handled. Here are just a few helpful tips that you might want to take into account:
- Do things which uplift your spirit and move, even if you don’t particularly feel like it
- Move! Don’t sit for more than an hour as you need to get your blood flowing.
- Get the necessary amount of sunlight. This isn’t a problem, especially in Singapore.
- Reach out to supportive friends and colleagues
In any case, you shouldn’t close yourself and hope for the best. You need to get a handle on the issue and the way to do so is by caring and being thoughtful. Of course, you should also consider visiting a professional, should you be unable to cope with the condition on your own.
