Depression and anxiety are psychological conditions characterized by somatic, emotional, cognitive, and behavioral components. In the presence or even in the absence of psychological stress, anxiety and depression can create fear, paranoia, excessive sadness, and fear.
How to deal with depression
Both, depression and anxiety are seen as a normal response of the human mind to a stressful situation, but when it occurs in situations that are not usually stress-generating, it turns into a pathological condition.
These mental conditions can often occur without an identifiable stimulus. As such, it is distinguished by their symptoms, which are usually emotional responses to perceived threats.
However, we can tackle depression and anxiety. Here are the best tips for coping with depression and anxiety.
Take a relaxing bath
The hydro-massage bath is one of the most agreeable and effective remedies to calm down. In this bath, we will be able to almost all our troubles.
This will be even more effective if you add lavender oil (or dried flowers) to the water. This miraculous so pleasantly fragrant plant has been known for thousands of years for its soothing properties.
Probably due to the pleasant odor of volatile oil, consisting of linalool acetate, geraniol, free linoleoyl, linalool valerate, coumarin, bitter substances, cineol, nerol, furfurol, alpha-pinene, cryophile, and so on, baths with essential oils are extremely beneficial.
Depression and anxiety are associated with an incorrect, superficial, mostly clavicular breathing in which the diaphragm muscle does not work at all. Blood oxygenation is so debilitating, with repercussions on the whole metabolism, including neurotransmitter hormones that are responsible for the health of the nervous system.
We offer a simple, extraordinarily effective exercise that is meant to be done on an empty stomach. Inhale slowly, inhale in the abdomen (you can put your hand on it to feel the movement) and avoid breathing that causes the shoulders to rise.
Hold your breath for four or five seconds, then slowly exhale by withdrawing your abdomen.
Repeat until the state of calm installs, for at least 7 minutes a day. This exercise puts the diaphragm into action, a very important muscle that then presses on the abdominal organs and puts into circulation the blood and fluids stagnant in this area and which, in many human beings, translates into a monumental belly.
