There is simply no person in the world who at least once in the autumn day did not get bored under the mournful rustle of the wind and the monotonous song of rain.
However, this does not mean that a bad mood should become a full-fledged master of your life: it can and should be fought! Animal therapy (communication with animals) is one of the most pleasant ways to lift your spirits
Hypochondria, melancholy, boredom, spleen, sadness, boredom, sadness – the Ukrainian language is so generous with words that describe a bad mood. But the diagnosis of “melancholy” or “melancholy” you, of course, do not find in medical directories. They operate with other concepts, such as “stress” and “depression”. It is important for all those who mobilize their forces to fight a bad mood to distinguish between these states and know that they are closely related to each other.
For stress, for example, typical increased irritability, irritability, and anxiety, inability to control themselves. Having discovered these symptoms, do not panic, there are natural sedatives to combat them (eg, Person). The main thing to remember is that stress does not forgive carelessness, it becomes chronic and eventually exhausts the nervous system, turning into a real depression. And the decline in strength and apathy characteristic of this condition is often so strong that it is impossible to cope with them without a specialist.
Therefore, you should not put off the fight against a bad mood in a long box – the earlier and more vigorously start a fight with him, the less likely it is that the words “stress” and “depression” will have anything to do with you. And the sooner the sun shines in your sky – no matter what the weather outside. Only let’s agree at once: not to offer shopping and sweets: the first negatively affects the budget, and the second – on a condition of teeth and a figure.
