1) Taking Cosmic
Cosmic Joy releases hundreds of phytonutrients that act at the
molecular level to support your
nervous system, promote proper
brain function, and preserve healthy mental balance.
Healthy Sleep - Lack of sleep results in feelings of irritability and
body weakening. This is in proportion to how much you allowed your body
to rest and heal itself overnight. Sleep deprivation raises risks of
inability to concentrate and memory problems. Your sleep quantity and
quality has direct relation to changes in the balance of major
neurotransmitters in the brain, such as serotonin, norepinephrine,
dopamine, melatonin and others. Relearning good sleep habits
accompanied by relaxation techniques comprise a good therapy for
depression. Start by going to bed and getting up the same time each
day. People who enjoy 7 or more hours of sleep per night are more
likely to experience excellent mood the next day. 7 1/2 to 8 1/2 hours
of sleep per night is recommended for both children and adults.
Omega-3 Fatty Acids Intake - Omega-3 fatty acids help to facilitate
growth and maintenance of your brain cells, especially cell membranes.
The human brain is 60 percent fat and its neurotransmitters move more
easily through fat membranes composed ofOmega-3 fats.
content ensures optimal neurotransmitter communication. Omega-3 fatty
acids found in fish also elevate your Serotonin levels resulting in a
state of mind. Studies of patients taking medication for major
found that 1 to 2 grams a day of omega-3 led to a measurable reduction
in symptoms. Good sources of Omega-3 fatty acids include nuts, salmon,
mackarel, and tuna. At least 1 gram is recommended daily.
Vitamin B Intake - Vitamin B is required for proper neurotransmitter
function. It stimulates brain action and help to regulate the nervous
system and control mood swings. About one third of
people with depression have folic acid (a type of Vitamin B)
deficiency, leading to low serotonin levels in the brain. Vitamin B6
deficiency induces feelings of being depressed and anxious. Depression
is also linked to deficiency in thiamin (Vitamin B1) and Vitamin B12,
which when untreated can lead to irreversible nerve damage. Vitamin B
can be found in liver, meat, poultry, fish, wheat, oatmeal, and whole
Tryptophan Intake - Tryptophan is an essential amino acid (a building
block of protein that the body can't make) and precursor for serotonin
production. It is helpful for regulating sleep, calming frayed nerves,
facilitating weight loss and appetite control, enhancing mood, and
increasing pain tolerance. Good sources of Tryptophan include
oats, milk, and cottage cheese. 200
milligrams of Tryptophan is recommended daily.
Healthy Carbohydrate Intake - Healthy Carbohydrates are necessary for
serotonin production. A low-carb diet may bring about irritability and
impatience because the brain needs a constant supply of blood sugar to
function well. Depression sufferers tend to have low blood sugar.
Healthy carbohydrates can be found in beans, potatoes and root
vegetables, winter squash, fresh fruits, and whole grains. Eating 5 to
6 smaller meals, each with at least 15 grams of carbohydrates (the
amount found in a medium apple or pear) is recommended.
Simple Carbohydrates - Simple Carbs (carbohydrate food made from white
sugar, white flour, white rice) rapidly increase insulin production
which can lead to a depressed state of mind and irritability. Excessive
intake of Simple Carbs can also cause weight gain, headaches, and
feelings of guilt and sadness. They also exacerbate hormonal problems
in women such as PMS (Pre-Menstrual Syndrome) and menopause, leading to
more pronounced imbalances.
Alcohol Intake - Alcohol and drugs can slow or prevent recovery from
depression. They can even aggravate feelings of hopelessness,
unhappiness, and other negative emotions. Alcohol lowers the serotonin
and norepinephrine levels in your brain, magnifies the effects of
stress hormones, wipes out every vitamin in your system, and speeds the
elimination of antioxidants in your blood.
Maintaining Proper Body Posture - The body systems and the mind are
integrated. Your posture influences muscle tension throughout your body
and in turn affects your brain's reactions to stimuli. Muscles tighten
due to feelings of stress. Muscular tension contributes to mood and
emotional reaction by becoming or remaining contracted. Muscles are
more relaxed when lying down, leading to brain activity that instructs
a calming reaction to a given situation. Also, sitting slumped is
associated with lower work-related self-confidence versus sitting
straight. Proper posture when standing, sitting, or lying down allows
better circulation inside the body.
Exercising Regularly - Exercise works as well or even better than
antidepressants. Incorporating exercise into your everyday routine will
uplift you emotionally while improving your general health; this
accelerates recovery from depression. Brisk walking and other
cardiovascular exercises are excellent for improving your heart rate
and elevating production of endorphins - natural pain medication
hormones that help you feel better and improve your mood.
Optimistic - Learn to magnify positive thoughts and kill the negative
thoughts before they accumulate and bring you to a depressed mood.
Switch your bad thoughts to upbeat and uplifting thoughts. Maintain a
daily record of each switch from negative to positive thought. Strive
to decrease the number of times you need to switch until you are able
to develop positive perspectives in all your dealings from the start.
