Millions of individuals across the world suffer from the crippling mental health illness that is depression. I myself suffered from it after my sport accident (My story). And I know it can leave you feeling drained, hopeless, and unmotivated. But fortunately, there are ways to overcome it and reclaim your life. Although there is no one-size-fits-all treatment for depression, positivity can help manage and even battle depressive symptoms. It helped me at the time I was feeling the worst. Here are some tips for learning to be positive in depression:
1. Practice gratitude: When you’re feeling down, seeing the good in your life can be hard. But setting aside some time each day to reflect on your blessings might help you change your perspective. So, write down three things you’re thankful for each day, no matter how small they may seem. It’s always a great idea to maintain a gratitude journal. It helps you see the good in life, even when the bad seems to overshadow all else. In my Box sets you will be able to find tools and crafted exercises to help you to find joy even during the darkest time and find the strength to be grateful for what you have.
2. Surround yourself with positivity: The people you spend time with can greatly impact your mood. Seek out friends and family members who are supportive, encouraging, and positive. If that means distancing yourself from toxic relationships and surrounding yourself with those who lift you up, don’t hesitate. It’s the right thing to do for yourself. Ultimately, it’s all about what and who makes you feel better! Power of words are as well important what you said and what you read will modify your mind, spirit and mood.

Chanting those words and quotes will have a powerful effect on daily basis.
3. Focus on self-care: Taking care of your physical and emotional needs can help boost your mood and overall sense of well-being. Make sure you’re getting enough rest, eating a balanced diet, and doing things you enjoy. Whether it’s going for a stroll, reading a book, watching a movie, or even treating yourself to a basic skincare routine, self-care is essential to preserving your well-being. When you do things that bring you happiness, it gets hard for the negativity to conquer you. “Light up your worth” Workbook have a list of ideas to make you feel better and to pamper yourself.
4. Challenge negative thoughts: Depression can cause a cycle of negative thinking that can be difficult to break. When you notice yourself having negative thoughts, try to challenge them. The first step is to identify the negative thoughts causing you distress. Once done, you can question their truthfulness and consider alternative explanations. It’s important to be kind to yourselves and practice self-compassion throughout the process. Also, using positive affirmations can help counteract negative thoughts. So, the next time your brain tells you you’re not worthy of love, tell it, “I am worthy of love and respect.” Slowly but surely, this will help change how your mind works. Remember, like a flower going out of a crack, fighting depression requires persistence and resilience to overcome the obstacles and grow towards the light. But learning to be positive through it all is a process. It is not a fast fix; rather a journey that calls for endurance and dedication to change. So, don’t be discouraged if you do not see immediate results; just know your hard work will pay off. By incorporating positive habits into your daily routine, you can learn to manage your symptoms and ultimately overcome depression. And that will be worth it all! Because I am aware of how challenging it is to put all theory into practice on your own when you are at your lowest, I developed the Lala Box’s Set to act as both a hand to help you up and a friend to be there for you. This box was something I made because I wished I had it when I was falling apart. I sincerely hope that everyone who needs it will receive support. I sincerely hope that it will benefit anyone who needs it.
