Feeling 'Off,' But Don't Know Why? Here's How to Reclaim Your Happiness.

1 15 0

Sometimes things are going great, and then all of a sudden, you feel “off” and don’t know why. I just downloaded What Happened to You by Oprah and Dr. Bruce Perry because I felt myself entering a state of aloofness, and I wanted to know why. I’d studied psychology in school, so I was always interested in how the mind works and why people do the things they do.

Most of us have an idea of what triggers us to feel things we don’t want to feel or think things we don’t want to think, but most of us haven’t taken a proactive stance to make sure that we are okay. Here are five things you can do when you feel yourself entering a depressive state.

You’re not going to love this at all, but it is necessary. There are some things we’d rather just block out and pretend never happened, but they did happen. We don’t have to dwell on it, but we have to acknowledge it. So, write down every traumatic thing that has happened to you. Make sure to have a friend, close family member or professional nearby that you can reach out to if you feel yourself entering a "danger zone" when you find yourself in a state of mind or emotion that isn’t healthy for you.
