Broken-up after a long relationship, failed in exam, divorced, lost job – any of this can be a reason good enough to spark those “I should end my life” kinda thoughts. These are the times when our patience and mental strength is put to test. Depression may sound a routine word to you, but it can cause all sorts of troubles including anxiety, restlessness, and if go worse it may lead to trauma or even nervous breakdown. Being happy is a state of mind that can be controlled with proper efforts. With proper therapy, medication and diet, depression can be checked and treated.
1. During depression, light food is advisable since it can be consumed effortlessly. Food rich in vitamin C like orange, strawberry, tomato, blueberry, broccoli, grapefruit and kiwi is strongly recommended.
2. Food rich in Vitamin E, such as nuts, wheat germ and vegetable oil, is also considered as good in treating depression.
3. Food containing beta-carotene like peaches, pumpkin, spinach, sweet potato, broccoli and carrots must be taken.
4. Intake of “smart” carbs such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains and legumes is recommended.
5. Non-vegetarians are on a safer side since consumption of chicken, tuna and turkey add spice to life thereby reducing depression to a large extent.
