It’s one of the most annoying aspects of human nature, that fact that when you are feeling really down in the dumps, the one thing that you really want to do, but also the one thing that is at that moment the hardest thing to do, is completely clear your mind and start afresh. Feelings of sadness and, at the more serious end depression, have a tendency to sink down deeper into more than a few layers of your thought process, which means that it can be very difficult to try to find a light at the end of the tunnel that isn’t clouded by negative energy. However, there are a few things that you can do in order to give yourself the best chance. Here are some ways to clear your mind when you’re down in the dumps.
1. Eat Well
Go back to basic in terms of your diet, stock up on fresh fruit and vegetables and make sure that you have three well balanced meals a day. Stay away from sugars and processed foods, because they are likely to lead to big surges of energy and subsequent crashes, which are the worst possible thing to happen to somebody who is already feeling sensitive and vulnerable.
