Depression and anxiety, both are the serious issues to discuss on and to deal. There are many students I know are facing severe depression due to the external and potential factors, such as fee, job, work, finances, etc. Some students feel isolated after moving away from their families and friends so their isolation results in severe depression. Students of this technological world should know that depression is not what you can neglect; it can kill you. 

The depression you face in university life is quite different from occasionally feeling sad or stressed or not in a good; it needs to be treated. Depression is quite serious but it is treatable and is known as a medical illness. If you are a student seeking for help then make sure to visit psychologist not because you are in that condition but because you are just feeling to visit a psychologist. Keep in mind that no one should suffer depression silently, speak it out before it hurts you too bad to handle. 

Symptoms of depression includes severe mood swing, like, feeling empty in bunch of people, crying for no reason, lack of interest in people, lack of pleasure in activities, difficulty with sleeping, heavy stomach or full stomach, feeling restless, get irritated on everything, difficulty with concentration, wrong decision making, feeling worthless, weight fluctuation, and so on. If you are having these symptoms then you are for sure a person with depression. These symptoms are not that severe ones so you can heal them before they lead you to big problems. 

There are some ways through which you can console yourself and be a better person; you are not a fighter but a warrior so you can overcome this depression, read the given instructions below:

Engage Yourself With Psychotherapy

As described above that no one should face the depression alone as it is a serious condition. Go to your psychiatrist and seek help to find relief. When a person is fighting with depression they need to consider their life, more than what people think and say. They need to consider their future more than what people will give to them. So, go to your psychiatrist, ask for help, and tell him what the difficulty you are facing is. 

Speak Your Heart Out

It is understandable that you are not near to your friends and family but why not new friends when you can make new friends in your new college too. Make friends, as it is very necessary to have a back, try to choose them carefully, and seek help from them. Tell you're a good friend of your difficulties, problems, and worries you are facing in your college life. Good friends are always there for you no matter what and if you have found that friend then keep that person. Don’t stay silent all the time, speak your heart out, you can do it in other forms, like, through writing poetry, book, and song lyrics. You can speak your heart out so well through spilling your words. 

Engage Yourself In Different Activities

Depression hits you well when you are sitting alone and doing nothing. Make sure to not set free, engage yourself in all day activities so you won’t feel depressive at all as once you don’t get time to be depressive you won’t have the depression within you. You can cash through the engagement in activities, for instance, if someone asks for help that can you please write my assignment online then ask them to pay you and you can write their assignment. Through this way, you can have the cash in your hand to pay your own fee. In addition, you must be free from depression. 

Meditate Yourself Or Do Exercises

Make sure to be on time and do the exercises, meditate yourself through yoga. In this way, you can keep yourself healthy both physically and mentally. If you are having a problem to sleep on time then start reading a book and once you start sleeping early you can maintain a habit to wake yourself up early in the morning then do the meditation or yoga. Yoga keeps you feel happy and through exercises, you feel relaxed enough to follow the balanced routine throughout college life. This is the best way to keep you away from depression and stress.
