In recent times, you will find many people suffering from stress and anxiety, which can be constituted by many factors such as family issues, work related problems, economical ups and downs and the like. This, in turn, leads to depression, which is an extension of stress and anxiety. Describing it more narrowly, depression is a condition of mood. So if your mood is off, it will affect your behaviour, feelings, lifestyle and thoughts. Ultimately if you can control your emotions, tension and anger, you may get relieved from depression.
Sounds easy. Doesn’t it?
No, it’s not that simple because when people are worried and stressed, they are unable to recover. Such people are at loss of pleasure moments or we can say that they don't remember any pleasurable days and are surrounded by feelings of emptiness, hopelessness, worries, helplessness, worthlessness, guilt, or restlessness. Depressed people often are unable to make decisions. They have problems in concentrating, thinking, remembering, and talking with others.

Do some light exercise, like a breathing exercise, morning walk or jogging. It will revitalize your body and will help you sustain daily pressures.
