10 Proven Ways To Help Prevent Depression

3. Stop the negative thoughts to help prevent depression

Negative thoughts can get “stuck” in our working memory and we become more likely to dwell on our problems.[3] This can have a big influence on our mood and mental well-being.

It’s important to differentiate between reality and what you think is going on in your head.

What to do: When a negative thought comes to your mind, do your best to block it out. You can also try other kinds of therapy, like yoga and Mindfulness meditation. You’ll learn to become more aware of your body and your thoughts, which can be a big help.
