Tips to Lose the Blues

We all “get-the-blues” occasionally. For some, the “blues” can be a long, drawn-out, and debilitating episode of deep depression that may require both medical and psychological intervention and treatment to set things right again.

If you are “blue” for long periods of time, we urge you to seek professional help. If, on the other hand, your “blues” are a temporary thing, here are some ways to chase them away:

  • Eat a good breakfast. Research shows eating a nutritional, well-balanced breakfast helps keep your blood-sugar and energy levels high and helps to fight mid-day fatigue and moodiness.
  • Let the light shine in. Bright, sunny, “emotionally light” spaces can help beat the blues. So, open the curtains, trim back the shrubs around your windows, or bring in some extra lamps … but let the light shine bright!
  • Try aromatherapy. Pleasant fragrances can lessen depression, relieve anxiety and improve your mood because the part of your brain that is responsible for “smell” interacts with the part that regulates emotion.
  • Give yourself a good laugh. Watch a videotape of your favorite comedian. Laughing out loud causes the brain to release endorphins that can make you feel better all over.

These are a few of the ways you can beat-the-blues. If none of these are to your liking then you can also try:

  • Uplifting music
  • Take a walk
  • Close your eyes and “imagine” the most beautiful sunset/sunrise you’ve ever seen.
