Depression is a well-known clinical condition that often requires assistance to combat. However, some people simply occasionally feel down, whether they know the cause or not. When you feel sad without explanation, there could be a variety of reasons, and pinpointing which one can help you pull out of it.
One of the most common causes of feeling not so happy is simply failing to live in the moment. Worrying about the future or dwelling on the past can not only interfere with today’s happiness, but it can also disrupt your sleep, hurting your ability to think clearly throughout the day. But when you don’t live in the moment, you actually confuse your brain, which doesn’t know the difference between an emotion you’re experiencing based on something that’s actually happening and one you’re creating.
But the reason for your sadness may have nothing to do with how you’re thinking. It could, in fact, be physical in nature. If you’ve been trapped inside, without sunlight, for days at a time, a long walk at the park on a nice day could remedy that. You’ll also need to make sure you’re getting enough sleep and eating the right foods since depriving your body of either of those things could lead to that “not so great” feeling.
