A Review Of Techniques In Managing Your Depression
Copyright © 2006 Stanley Popovich
A Layman's Guide to Managing Fear

Some people have a difficult time in managing their depression. 
Sometimes, their depression and fears can get best of them.  As a 
result, here is a short list of techniques that a person can use 
to help manage their depression.

One of the ways to manage your depression is to challenge your 
negative thinking with positive statements and realistic 
thinking. When encountering thoughts that make your fearful or 
depressed, challenge those thoughts by asking yourself questions 
that will maintain objectivity and common sense. For example, 
your afraid that if you do not get that job promotion then you 
will be stuck at your job forever. This depresses you, however 
your thinking in this situation is unrealistic. The fact of the 
matter is that there all are kinds of jobs available and just 
because you don't get this job promotion doesn't mean that you 
will never get one. In addition, people change jobs all the time, 
and you always have that option of going elsewhere if you are 
unhappy at your present location.

Some people get depressed and have a difficult time getting out 
of bed in the mornings.  When this happens, a person should take 
a deep breathe and try to find something to do to get their mind 
off of the problem.   A person could take a walk, listen to some 
music, read the newspaper or do an activity that will give them a 
fresh perspective on things. Doing something will get your mind 
off of the problem and give you confidence to do other things.

Sometimes, we can get depressed over a task that we will have to 
perform in the near future. When this happens, visualize yourself 
doing the task in your mind. For instance, you and your team have 
to play in the championship volleyball game in front of a large 
group of people in the next few days. Before the big day comes, 
imagine yourself playing the game in your mind. Imagine that your 
playing in front of a large audience. By playing the game in your 
mind, you will be better prepared to perform for real when the 
time comes. Self-Visualization is a great way to reduce the fear 
and stress of a coming situation.

Another technique that is very helpful is to have a small 
notebook of positive statements that make us feel good. Whenever 
you come across an affirmation that makes you feel good, write it 
down in a small notebook that you can carry around with you in 
your pocket.  Whenever you feel depressed, open up your small 
notebook and read those statements.

Remember to take advantage of the help that is available around 
you. If possible, talk to a professional who can help you manage 
your fears and anxieties. They will be able to provide you with 
additional advice and insights on how to deal with your current 
problem.  By talking to a professional, a person will be helping 
themselves in the long run because they will become better able 
to deal with their problems in the future. Managing your fears 
and anxieties takes practice.  The more you practice, the better 
you will become.

The techniques that I have just covered are some basic ways to 
manage your depression, however your best bet is to get some help 
from a professional.
