A Simple Secret to Stop Feeling Depressed

How to stop feeling depressed | BIGG SuccessEverybody feels down now and then. But yesterday was Blue Monday – the day that researchers say is the most depressing of the whole year.

So if you’ve got the blues, you have a lot of miserable company!

Before we share the simple secret to stop feeling depressed, we want to clarify what this post is about.

If you feel down occasionally, this post will help. If you feel down most of the time, seek out a professional.

BIGG success is life on your own terms. The simple secret to stop feeling depressed can be summarized in just one term:


Let’s talk about four moves you can make right now to beat the blues.

Move like you mean it

Move around physically. Get up. Change your scenery.

Go for walk. Or a run. Do some calisthenics. Go workout.

Dance! Not the way you usually dance. Put on some jammin’ music. And dance like Elaine.

Move like you mean it!

Move 180 degrees

Move mentally. Have you ever noticed that one negative thought often begets another? The next thing you know you find yourself in a downward spiral?

Move 180 degrees. Every time you have a negative thought, force yourself to think about something positive in your life. And be grateful.

Start with the basics. Focus on seeing the beauty in nature. What a wonderful world we live in.

Focus on seeing the beauty within you. You are the greatest miracle in the world.

Focus on how you can help other people. Yes, get out of yourself. Do something to make someone else feel better and you’ll feel better.

Move away

We’re not talking about selling your house and moving away. We’re talking about moving away from your routine.

Routines can easily turn into ruts. And as Laurence J. Peter said, “A rut is a grave with the ends knocked out.”

So mix it up. Move away from your rut to a new ritual. You don’t have to do it forever. Just do it today!

Move forward

Think ahead. What do you have coming up?

You do have something to look forward to, right? If you don’t, dive in. That’s your project.

Which leads to the next point – what does BIGG Success mean to you? What will you do today to be a BIGG success?

Take action. Doing beats thinking. It leads to BIGG success!

    You are full of it when you give the advice to just “Move” I think people like you never once felt what it is like to be depressed. Think about all the people that are “Moved” to Suicide because of you!!!

      Steve, as we clearly stated at the beginning of our post: “If you feel down occasionally, this post will help. If you feel down most of the time, seek out a professional.”

      And yes, we have both experienced depression in our lives. We have lost loved ones, felt the lows of entrepreneurship, and battled personal demons. And we’ve been there for friends and family when they’ve gone through bouts of depression. Sorry this post didn’t resonate with you, but it may for some and that is all we are trying to do here.

        Steve you are clearly angry by the lack of support you feel this website should have given you. Your aggressive comment shows you are depressed and definitely need to see a professional if you feel a positive website drives people to suicide! Get help hunni!
        On another note as a woman who has suffered with depression for many years and currently experiencing a low day I found your website useful and a reminder of the cbt I have learned! Thank u
