Feeling Sad for No Reason
One day, you keep wandering around your house, feeling sad, unable to pinpoint the root cause of it. However, there is always a reason for your sadness. You might think that there is no reason, but the truth is you are just unaware of it.
When you are faced with sadness, ask yourself a few questions. Sit and reflect on what led up to your sadness.
These might be the possible causes:
Insufficient sleep is the common cause for sadness while a healthy sleep can improve one's well being. According to studies, sleep deprivation affects 80 percent of persons who are unhappy.
Some people get sick of tedious daily routines, which eventually overwhelms them and makes them sad. One should engage in creative and useful activities. Try to break your routine!
Certain foods might make you sad. We all know that a balanced diet is essential for our health, but certain foods, like coffee, can cause sleeplessness, which then causes sadness. Try avoiding such food when you're feeling sad.
However, I am the complete opposite of this. When I feel sad, it is when I indulge myself more with unhealthy foods which should not be the case.
Stop worrying about things you can't change. We can all agree that we often overthink things which are in fact simple. Our thinking has in some way complicated our lives. To simplify it, stay in your domain and focus on your responsibilities. It will make you happy.
Last night's emotional chat
Bedtime emotional chats cause sadness. Last night's fight with your friends or partner can drain your energy which makes you sad the next day. If possible, avoid fighting with your partner before going to sleep. If you sleep with a peace of mind, you will feel rejuvenated in the morning.
Isolation from society also brings sadness. Socialize and meet people with the same interests as you. They might shift your energy!
However, this is not always the case. For introverted people, socializing can make them anxious. Chatting with someone online can be a choice for them.
Inactivity also causes you to feel down. So get moving! Though it is difficult to exercise when depressed, it is the finest antidepressant. Exercise raises serotonin levels, which is an antidepressant. Exercise also releases endorphins, a natural painkiller. Furthermore, exercising will fatigue you, allowing you to sleep well.
So now you know what to do when you're sad. Go live your life and smile!
