We have Emily Johnson from OmniPapers today as a guest blogger. Check out this amazing infographic on fighting depression at work.
Almost all people face work depression from time to time, no matter what their profession is. The work environment is full of obstacles which may lead to the work depression. Obviously, you can’t be productive if you’ve faced depression. Thus, it’s important to know actionable ways on how to overcome depression, and the faster you do it, the better.
According to OmniPapers infographic, there are three natural ways to overcome
work depression with ease:
- Work during the day length. Natural lighting produces serotonin that helps to prevent seasonal disorder, which is a form of depression. If you work during the day length, you can be more productive. However, it’s also important to set up proper artificial lighting by adjusting computer screen brightness and choosing the right desk lamp.
- Look after yourself. Humans, like all animal creatures, can boost the level of endorphins by grooming. If you like how you look, that’s great. Believe it or not, it can give you more than good mood as you can reduce the risk of depression.
- Do sports activities regularly. Physical activities help to improve health, including mental one. If you do short and intensive workouts, your body produces endorphins. Being pressed for time, you can use mini elliptical trainers to do physical activities while working.
While it’s impossible to predict when you will face work depression next time, it’s important to know ways how to cope with this disorder to improve productivity and, therefore, have a good work performance.
