8 Ways To Change How You Feel

1. Smile

We can, in fact, make ourselves feel better By forcing ourselves to smile, regardless of how we feeling. Even if you aren’t happy, if you smile, your body will begin to produce chemicals that bring you joy (Endorphins, Dopamine, Serotonin). Endorphins are chemicals that help you feel joyful and calm. Dopamine and serotonin are both natural antidepressants.

If you’re feeling sad, laughing is an easy way to feel at least a little bit better—which may help you deal with any difficulties you’re dealing with. Try it right now and you’ll notice a change. Read other 10 Benefits of Smiling And Facts About Smiling

2. Past Is Tense

The past has gone, yet most of us fail to let it go. We all know that we can’t alter the errors we’ve made in the past, but we keep remembering them and feeling awful about them, which causes us to be unhappy and guilty.

Instead of dwelling on the past, focus on the now and think about what you can do better to be happier and more successful in the future. The past is intended to be a lesson, therefore learn from it and move on.

“The past is always tense, the future perfect.”
― Zadie Smith

3. No Negative Thoughts

Keep in mind that everything we focus on grows. If you concentrate on the bad, you will attract more of the same. The issue is that depressed people have a negative attitude; they would always claim, “My glass is half empty, not half full.”

The way we interpret our experiences influences how we experience them.  People who have a negative attitude will not consider what is good and wrong; they will just believe what they want to believe.

So we may shift our moods by changing our thoughts. sure, this is not that easy. But if you make it a habit, you will ultimately learn to do it. Your life will change if you change your beliefs.

You may change your thinking patterns by doing something unusual, such as starting to laugh aloud or singing your favorite song loudly. Do something that completely breaks your thought process. Something humorous is beneficial since when we smile our body releases some chemicals which work as antidepressants.

4. Don’t Hide

If we are depressed, we tend to avoid all of our friends and relatives. We want to close the doors and hide behind those doors. We might not want to connect to anyone and spend the entire day with our minds full of stupid thoughts.

Trying to hide is not an option if you want to feel better. It’s like if you want to quench your thirst but refuse to drink the water.

So, what you need to do is open the doors and mingle with people. I know it’s not easy, but it’s the best choice. Resist the urge to run away. Even if you don’t say anything at first, be among others. Simply take the first step.

5. Be Thankful And Appreciate

It is one of the simplest and most effective methods to immediately feel better. Take a look around yourself. Appreciate what you have, such as food on the table, a bed to sleep in, a roof over your head, family, and friends.

It truly works. It’s a good idea to attempt to change your mindset so that you enjoy the things in your daily life rather than taking them for granted.

6. Meditation

Meditate on a daily basis to improve your mental health. Meditation can become a means of dealing with emotions, as well as we can explore ourselves. A meditation practice may physiologically transform your brain so that it is peaceful all the time, and it has been attributed to reduced rates of depression. Also practice Mindfulness as it teaches you to examine your thoughts calmly, rather than react to them, and then actively decide how to respond.

7. Talk or Write

Don’t keep your emotions caged up because if we don’t communicate about how we’re feeling, we’ll burst like Beer cans one day.

Come out of the shell and open up, whether with a member of the family, or a friend. Keeping everything within might be one of the most dangerous things you can do.

If there are no supporting individuals to talk with. Writing down how you are feeling may be highly helpful.  Fill the page with your thoughts. Get everything out. Allow your feelings of guilt, regret, rage, frustration, rejection, and hate to overflow into the pages. 

8. Educate yourself

There is a lot of material available about depression and associated concerns. Go read it as the more you learn, the more comfortable you will feel. You will no longer believe you are insane. You will be able to better handle your emotions. You will begin to feel stronger and more in charge. Knowledge truly is a form of power. So Know your disease and fight.
