February 26, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 168

In the world of psychotherapy it is not uncommon for patients to be prescribed anti-depressant medication. In some cases medication is necessary, and the purpose of this article is not to discourage anyone currently being treated to stop medication. Depression is not defined universally, there are many different stages and levels of depression.

Personally exercise is my favorite remedy it releases endorphins in the brain which is the same thing anti-depressant medication does. There is nothing like feeling the stress leave your body and being able to immediately enjoy having a clear mind. This is an illness that affects every aspect of your life but it is good to know that there is hope. Depression can be hereditary or onset by traumatic events there is a huge generation gap when it comes to treating this illness.

Educating yourself will empower your efforts in learning how to battle depression without medication. It is all too common for people to be intimidated by what they don't know, so the natural thing to do is stick with what you know. However challenges are the experiences that bring out the very best in us, do not be afraid to learn because knowledge is power. There are several ways to start the process of effective goal settings.

Establishing accountability is a great technique to use when setting goals. It doesn't necessarily have to be to another individual, self-accountability can be just as effective. Things are very often easier said than done, so creating structure and or planning can be very helpful. A positive attitude is an important part of goal setting; it heightens the probability of that goals will be reached.

Individuals who put effort in understanding the basics of setting and accomplishing goals are better equipped to go forward and be successful. Time management will play a great role in both setting and reaching goals, without efficient time management skills success is difficult. This will allow you to create focus and step into action. Fighting this battle can be overwhelming without a positive attitude, it is important to surround yourself with positive individuals.

Sometimes symptoms of depression can cause irrational behavior and create concern for the person suffering from this illness. Almost 90% of the time anxiety is associated with these symptoms and cause severe panic attacks and nerve issues. Your mind has everything to do with mental health and stability, therefore medication alone is never enough to battle depression.
