It is a sad fact that more and more people are dealing with stress and depression these days. Stress in the workplace is very common as it seems that so much is expected of us. People in the UK and the US work extremely long hours, and the stress of these hours can lead to the employee having to fight depression.

Stress and Depression are still things that are not talked about openly. People who are suffering can get the impression that others think their problems are “all in the mind” and they should snap out of it. Trying to fight depression is not easy if you think this is what other people’s opinions are. The saying “a problem shared is a problem halved” is very apt with regards to stress and depression. Try to talk to people and explain how you are feeling. You may even feel better for just having got a few things off your chest.

Some of the most common symptoms of depression are:

Feeling sad all of the time and that you could cry at almost anything
Always very tired with little or no energy
Everything you have to do seems like much too much effort
Having trouble dropping off to sleep, or waking in the night and not able to drop back off
Comfort eating even if you are not hungary or not wanting to eat at all

If you think you are depressed you should see your doctor for a diagnosis, but please do not think that you have to go down the route of taking antidepressants. There are plenty of others things that can be done to give you stress and depression relief.

Looking at what you eat and the exercise you take can help you to fight depression.
