Beat Depression With Laughter

I remember that time as if it was yesterday. Emptiness. Loneliness. Sadness. Even my partner, who comes back home every day late in the evening, couldn’t console me. I stopped eating, taking care of myself, going shopping like I used to every other week (after all, when you work at home, you don’t need beautiful dresses, skirts and cute, expensive T-shirts...). I would get up at 9 o’clock, eat a piece of bread with whatever I found in the fridge, strive to work in front of my laptop until evening, forget about dinner time, and without taking a shower, go to bed. The next day looked exactly the same. After a month, my boyfriend told me that it had to change because he couldn’t stand me being so “ghost-like.” He tried to help me in many ways, but nothing worked. At least, not for long.

Food is an important part of everyone’s lives. Whether you are indulging in sweets, nurturing your body with nothing but nutrition, or cooking yourself a grand meal to enjoy with family, food is often found at the center of the theoretical world. According to Earnest, the average household food budget this year will be $6,800. Not only does food have nutritional value, it carries a real financial cost. Take a moment to consider the emotional and financial cost of what you are eating. For example, a five dollar piece of cake can be seen as derailing from a diet or a health regimen. A five dollar bag of pistachios, on the other hand. cost the same monetarily, but hold a much higher nutritional value and a smaller emotional debt than the piece of cake. While fueling our bodies should be the primary reason for eating, often times we overlook the purpose of food. By forming a positive relationship with your plate, you can maintain a healthy body and mind. By focusing on food’s strict nutritional purpose — you can help yourself determine the value of its consumption as well as the importance of the relationship you have with it.

Make Yourself A Priority

Why do we always fail to prioritize ourselves? We always place the needs of others before our own. When life gets too busy, we miss out on the things we like and end up compromising. Quite often, we tend to place others' needs before our own. But it’s about time you put yourself first. You can never be truly happy unless you prioritize yourself. And this starts by focusing on your well-being, taking enough rest, and fulfilling your desires. If you are still questioning whether you need to make yourself a priority, here are a few reasons that will convince you. 1. Do It For Your Health The first and foremost reason to put your needs before anything else is that your health depends on it. Putting long hours at work may be doing good for the company, but not to your health. You will end up straining yourself too much and spend the entire weekend in bed. You ignore the signals your body is giving and go about life. And then, one fine day, all the stress will kick in at once and force you to take rest...

Between April 30 and May 6 of this year, families, schools, and communities will vow to live their lives for a week screen free. During these days, individuals will plan to unplug from digital entertainment, instead of spending their time reading, creating, and reconnecting to family and friends. This initiative provides those participating a chance to get a break from technology and enjoy the entertainment that is their life. Research has suggested that social media and excessive screen time may be parts of the cause for a rise in depression and suicide among American children and teens. The same study found that those who experience more face-to-face time and less screen time are less likely to be depressed or suicidal. In the digital age, we are surrounded by gadgets and gizmos that take our attention from the important things (and people) in our lives. If you find yourself at a crossroads with your technology habits, consider a digital diet.
