How I Overcame My Depression and Anxiety Naturally

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Looking back six months ago, I was a mess.

If you looked up depression in the dictionary, my picture would probably be right there.

I couldn’t go through the day without a cigarette, coffee, medication to level me out.

It has been a long journey, stuck in the same cycle of taking on impossible projects and then relentlessly working until I was so burnt out and, ultimately, failed.

When I stopped and reflected on my life, all that was left was a feeling of uneasiness and emptiness. And in my head I knew that I wanted change— badly. However, I had tried so many remedies that had failed that I was pretty hesitant to try anything.

It has been said that a person’s mental state is a sign of their intuition telling them something isn’t right. In my experience, it was always an indicator that I needed to find balance in my life.

I am by no means an expert in psychology, wellness, or spirituality, but I wanted to share the steps and activities, that I personally tried, that really helped to elevate my life. Feel free to try what I did, or don’t. I’m not going to try to sell you anything at the end. Just happy to share my journey.

Hopefully someone gets something out of this.

 

A First Step

 

I had heard a tip from someone online saying that the first thing they did when they woke up was to drink a bottle of water and make their bed. Seemed stupid…[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”811″ img_size=”large” alignment=”center”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

…but I did it. And I made it a point to do it every day. Kind of like my own 30 day challenge. Felt a bit more energy in the morning, nothing special, but maybe it is more of a positive habit forming routine.

 

Following Doctors Orders

 

I started supplementing with Omega-3s, which are known to help elevate mood, as an initial step to relieving my anxiety. My doctor mentioned that I most likely didn’t have enough Omega-3s in my diet and I was also taking coffee and cigarettes on a daily basis which frequently make the situation worse. In the mornings I started taking a pill with Omega-3s, Vitamin C and few other supplements. I did not want to go overboard on this one because it can potentially have side effects so I wanted to make sure my body was used to them first. Starting from 1 pill per day for a period of one week and then increasing the number to 2-3 until I was taking the full dosage.

 

Caffeine Replacement

 

I replaced all my coffee, including creamers and sugar, with matcha green tea. It is healthy for your body and mind in the sense that it boosts concentration without giving you the jitters or crash after you drink it. I started slowly by replacing my regular coffee with matcha when I was out for lunch or dinner but eventually made it a main part of my diet. I now drink matcha with water in the mornings. I don’t need any caffeine to feel fully charged for the day and it has become my ritual, and I love the taste of it.

 

Ormus Supplement

 

I received a different brand of Ormus after my last one ran out, and to be honest, this one made me feel a bit more optimistic and motivated then I have ever felt with any other brand of Ormus that I had taken before. I don’t know if it was the placebo effect or not but I felt that there was a difference in my life.

Honestly this is the feeling I was looking for when I first tried Ormus.

The results came on gradually, and someone actually pointed it out to me first that I seemed more positive than usual. About two weeks after I started taking Ormus, my anxiety was relieving bit by bit, but it did come back after a while due to stress and needing some time off from work.

Start Exercising

 

After this point, I decided to take another piece of advice from my doctor to start exercising. I started doing body weight exercises at home two times a week and walking more frequently outside.

It felt good. Really good.

After each workout, my mind felt clear— I became more relaxed yet somehow had boundless energy. So the one of the weeks I upped my schedule to three times per week, and the next week I jumped to four.

I literally felt like it was opening new doors for me – It made me feel good on so many levels.  It increased my productivity at work, it relieved some of the tension in my back from leaning over a desk at work for hours on end.

Although it didn’t occur to me for the first few months, but at around week 8, I started noticing—

What the he—?

Looking in the mirror, I saw my long dormant muscles had came out of hibernation and started to grow. I wasn’t a bodybuilder by any means, but I was looking better, and ultimately, feeling better. This was the kind of change I wanted in my life, but never actually put effort into doing it until now.

 

Self Care and Appreciation

 

I used the time that I had been spending on projects to take care of myself instead. It took some time but it was worth the effort and clear headspace that I have now without all the clutter and papers.

Got my hair cut, shaved my face, started a skin care regimen all helped me to look on the outside how I was starting to feel on the inside. I started wearing dress shirts daily, casually with jeans, which is not luxurious for some, but I was happy with it. The right blend of professionalism and comfort.

I made it a point to start reflecting on what is important to me daily. What things do I value in life? Money was something I used to think was essential to my happiness. But when you have everything it doesn’t bring joy anymore. For example when I wanted an expensive meal out or gadget it would give me an initial rush of happiness but it would quickly fade away.

What I realized was that I really value people in my life, and the genuine connections that come with them. I started being grateful for the things and people that are already in my life, and I started going out and meeting new people.

 

Leaving the Comfort Zone

 

Joined a beach volleyball group and started going to this monthly restaurant crawl that I had found on this app called Meetup where you can find groups for anything, and you can meet some really genuine people.

I am still working on my anxiety and depression, but I have seen significant improvement in the way I feel and and have gained the mental tools to handle any situation that’s thrown at me.

I got the notion that the body, mind, and relationships are like machines, if you don’t use it then it starts to rust.

I am happy that I found my balance.

This might seem cheesy for some, and there’s probably a million of these posts exactly like this on the internet. But if I can affect just one of you, who needs that spark, to start making a positive change in their life— I will be grateful.
