There are a lot of signs that might tell you something about your mental health. Those signs might be completely new to you or something you didn’t notice.
Here are the signs that shows you are depressed.
Low motivation is also called Anhedonia. Anhedonia lies at the core of depression There might be times when you don’t feel like doing things. You might feel drained even when you haven’t done anything. It doesn’t mean that you don’t like doing it, its just that you are too tired to do it and socially withdraws you by surrounding you with negative feelings.
HOPELESSNESS AND HELPLESSNESS
When you are depressed you are mostly hopeless and feel like you are stuck in this world with no light at all. Helplessness kick in right after hopelessness to indicate that we are incapable of doing things. This combination can make you feel like trapped in a dark room, and the door is locked too. During this zone you can try to challenge yourself into things that are bothering you and break out bit by bit.
Fatigue is another sign that leads to depression. Most of the people say that it is unstable sleep schedule that causes fatigue but it is just that you are too tired and don’t have energy to do things. Taking antidepressants, low/high diet, sleeplessness, stress etc can increase the chances of gaining fatigues. Yoga or exercise is a good solution to put yourself to bed as it can help you lower the sign of fatigue.
Depression happens to have an impact on your cognition. It will make activities such as decision making, thinking, problem solving, memorizing, and functioning very difficult. The decision making is even more difficult during a depressive episode as you always expect a negative income. Try to consult a therapist as they can help you find a way out.
Anxiety is a disorder on its own but it has connections with depression as the symptoms for them both are similar. Anxiety can make you feel things like rapid breathing, panicking, feeling unsafe, and trouble focusing on things. Anxiety can be lessened by doing stuff that you are comfortable doing. It could be anything like making your bed, painting, writing journal, taking a walk etc.
IF YOU ARE RELATING TO ANY OF THE SYMPTOMS THEN TRY SEEKING HELP. DON NOT NEGLECT YOUR MENTAL HEALTH.
