Stress and depression are parts of our society. The negative thoughts which they arise from come from all of the daily and routine problems. A person's attitude toward their surroundings is exceptionally crucial.
It is formulated from exterior factors. And when everything you hear from the media has to do with crises, corruption, murder and robbery, the bitterness of humanity - it is not unexpected for human consciousness change over to a different wave. Stress is simply a reaction to all of these psychological burdens.
No one can be entirely free of stress and dark thoughts but it's better to deal with them from the get-go instead of allowing them to overtake them. We need to know how to react in an unfamiliar and adverse situation instead of allowing ourselves to think the worst at any given moment.
Sometimes it really is unavoidable. At such times, it is best not to try to escape from these pessimistic thoughts. This is the 1st step in dealing with them. We need to let them overtake us completely, no matter how afraid we are. That way we show that we can accept and that we can overcome them and send them to the past.
The most logical place we should seek for dealing with this problem is nature. Since she is the mother of all living things, the remedy for every type of ailment - spiritual and physical, needs to be sought in her. Contact with nature fuels our energy supply, which is constantly at a critical level, especially if we are plagued by negative thoughts.
When you have them, when you feel powerless against the problems, go out in nature. A walk in the forest, a trip to the closest mountain or a walk on the beach - you will be surprised how much they will help. Calm and unity with nature will cleanse you emotionally and you will see that things aren't nearly so bad as they seem.
In general, one should seek the joy in life. Everyone needs to realize for themselves that it's all worth it. That it's worth doing everything they do, to pursue their dreams, to study, to learn, by and large - that it's worth for things to turn around in their favor.
And most importantly we need to realize that our inaptitude in no way helps the situation become better. The problems remain. That is when the desire for change needs to come. In other words - negative thoughts and inadequacy need to consciously be replaced not only with thoughts but with actions, leaning toward positive change.
