According to a 2004 Rand Corporation report, depression results in more absenteeism than almost any other physical disorder and costs employers more than US$51 billion per year in absenteeism and lost productivity.
Depression cures come in every form, manner, and shape that you can imagine.
Depression cures in the form of medicine are available, as well as herbal remedies, electromagnetic equipment, and even computer software.
Depression cures are in increasing demand as society faces a higher degree of depression and anxiety due to terrorism, job insecurity, and natural catastrophes.
Hundreds of millions of dollars are spent annually in an attempt to find depression cures.
While there are no guaranteed depression cures available, there are medicines and therapies that can work to help individuals cope with their depression.
Here are some steps that I have found to help alleviate temporary depression and anxiety.
1. Walk. Taking a nice long walk has always yielded a break from anxiety, and a resulting lifting of the spirits. By walking you are changing your surroundings which helps your mind switch tracks.
2. Meditate. Meditation can be as simple as sitting down and thinking of something positive. As your mind drifts back towards a negative thought you need to refocus on a positive thought.
Many people repeat a positive phrase until they feel their mood improve.
3. Exercise. A steady exercise routine will improve your mood, calm your senses, and make you happier. There are physical and psychological reasons for this, but I can assure you that even a small amount of daily exercise can do wonders.
4. Socialization. Studies repeatedly show that being around people leads to healthier lives. The more people you talk to, the more positive and exciting your day will be. Of course, talking the right people makes a world of difference.
5. Having a hobby. Having a hobby can help depression and anxiety sufferers because it gives them another outlet for their energies. In addition, instead of being focused on a negative feeling or event, the person will be involved with another activity.
