What’s wrong?Are you with me !!! you changed a lot,you are not same …!!! .I am in the middle of the crowded room having no clue , On the top of my lungs screaming and no one even cares to glance ,everyone is busy gossiping ,laughing,gazing,teasing .Unless it was inner me struggling to get a life.Those were the days I desperately wanted to get out of the world and be enclosed by only me .I hope I am not the only one encountering such eerie situations .And the weapon we have is to weep .But for how long?It has been ages since I crossed my adolescence and desiring to wake up and start all new.To all of you my dear mates “who have googled,surfing for advises of many psychologists and different sites that pop up and blink .And do the same every time you feel so.So,here are the top things you could follow to beat up your minor depression.
Let me start from the very minute you wake up.you feel empty ?Open the windows you had shut down for a while,let the nature seek you,nurture you and then you smile ,staring into the blue sky.Yes,this is the time ,pull out your shoe,grab a audio player and run.Run as fast as you could and as long as you could .Exploring yourself into the long roads,that never felt your strength.Greet every stranger you meet on the way.Keep running until your energy pours out in the form of sweat.
Exercise should be regarded as tribute to heart
