What are some natural remedies for depression?
I recommend the following options;
Meditation comes with multiple health benefits, such as, post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, and of course, depression. Research (https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamapsychiatry/fullarticle/2517515) suggests that mindful-based cognitive therapy used in preventing relapse of depressive symptoms is promising. Again, mindful meditation plus deep breathing can highly influence one’s ability to control depression.
I am a fitness enthusiast and an advocate of healthy living through healthy diet and exercise. I love exercising because it has various health benefits, including mental wellness and improved quality of life. It leads to release of endorphins- chemicals that can boost mood and increase happiness. Researchersconclude that exercising elevates the heart rate; a factor that promotes both mental and physical health. I always tell my clients to set aside at least 30 minutes of moderate exercise intensity every day to get results.
Are there studies to prove these remedies?
Of course, yes. I have cited in the above remedies.
Definitely, yes. That is because sunlight increase serotonin release- a chemical significant for regulating mood. I always advise my clients to get an alternative to light exposure, especially during winter where there may be lack of sunlight. You can buy a visor or lightbox to help mitigate depression.
