A lot of people who over extend themselves, use up not only all their physical strength, but they also tend to over-extend their mental powers to the point where they simply need a proper holiday.
Many busy people who are unable to understand the idea of relaxing and taking time of from work, as well as from their worries, have nervous breakdowns, anxiety depression and all sorts of mental illnesses that cause a person’s sanity to waver. Fortunately, if you are one of those people who is incapable of relaxing and who is always worried and fussing over things, there are several cures and remedies available for dealing with anxiety depression.
Anxiety depression is actually characterized by all sorts of irregular behaviour and erratic moods in the person who is suffering from it. This is usually because of specific stress triggers. Furthermore, a lot of people who tend to get easily worked up over stressful activities are actually prone to having anxiety depression. It is actually a matter of being strong-willed when it comes to facing difficult and stressfull activities. It may be pretty hard to do at first, but trying to be calm and cool in times of extreme pressure is what will actually save your mental health from going into a downward spiral.
When it comes to effectively curing oneself of a mental illness, one must keep in mind that one has to be honest with oneself and assess what kind of depression or mental illness one actually has. Go to a reputable psychiatrist to get yourself diagnosed correctly as well to get the right depression treatment. Here are the various types of depression:
Manic or Bipolar depression – characterized by sudden and extreme changes in one’s mood where one minute the sufferer is in an elevated state of euphoria while the next minute (day or week) the sufferer is in a personal hell.
Postpartum depression – is characterized by lengthy periods of sadness and a feeling of emptiness in a new mother where physical stress during child birth and / or an uncertain sense of responsibility towards the new born baby are just some of the possible factors why some new mothers go through this illness.
Dysthimia – is recognizable by a slight resemblance to bipolar (manic) depression. In this case, however, it has been seen to be a lot less severe, although, doctors say that, any case of depression should be treated immediately.
Cyclothemia – is recognizable by a similarity with Manic or Bipolar depression wherein the person suffering from this mental illness can sometimes suffer from severe mood swings.
Seasonal Affective Disorder – is recognizable by falling into a rut only in specific seasons (i.e. Winter, Spring, Summer or Autumn). However, studies prove that more people become depressed during the Winter and Autumn seasons. And lastly, mood swings, where a person’s mood may change from happy to sad to angry in a relatively short period of time.
However, the type of depression that has been proven to be most prevalent, is anxiety depression, which is actually characterized by someone being overly anxious about some things. Anxiety is a natural behaviour that actually will help people cope more with certain stressful activities like a first date or a gruelling exam the following day. Anxiety helps you get psyched up towards facing certain “difficult situations”. Therefore, anxiety is actually quite a good, natural emotion.
Anxiety depression however, is quite the opposite. However, it should not be lightly dismissed as a “case of the jitters”. Anxiety depression is in actuality an illness that can be caused by the actual DNA of a person, or, in other words, it can be a family.
Furthermore, there are actually various sorts of anxiety depression too. Each type has its own unique characteristics. Take for instance Generalized Anxiety Disorder or GAD. This kind of anxiety depression is a lot more complicated than the average anxiety depression, despite it possibly being a daily problem for those who suffer from this anxiety depression, Generalized Anxiety Disorder actually makes the individual much more paranoid than usual. Anxiety attacks are much more frequent, even absurdly so at times.
Suffers can become anxious even when there is no real explanation that calls for them to behave in that way. Those people suffering from Generalized Anxiety Disorder often show several symptoms ranging from from lack of sleep, to being unable to relax, becoming tired easily, inability to concentrate and suffering from depression. However, this sort of anxiety depression is still curable though.
You should consult a reputable cognitive behavioural therapist who will recommend the therapy that you need to help you relax. Furthermore, prescribed medicines are a necessity to help these individuals deal with anxiety attacks, assist them to calm down and help them relax.
