Recognizing Depression and Anxiety

By Karen Keller

It’s normal to feel depressed and anxious after graduation. Those first-job interviews have us buying a new stick of deodorant every week. Then, if you’re successful, you get to transition to the 9-to-5 routine as a reward. It’s the beginning of the rest of your life

.

Pretty grim.

But what’s the difference between stuttering when you’re on the spot and real, clinically diagnosed anxiety? And what about the blues? Is it depression, or are
you just seriously bummed that you can’t get up at noon anymore? The NYU School of Medicine provides a good test for both Depression and Anxiety . For more information, check out the National Institute of Mental Health on Depression and Anxiety . Finally, Cigna has a quick and dirty guide to both the big D and the little A .

Obviously, if it’s a clear case of clinical craziness, you want to see a doctor. However, even if it’s just a case of minor brain wackiness, there are many things you can do to bolster your mental health that don’t have side effects of medication (e.g., erectile dysfunction, hair loss, or worse.

Dispute Negative, Recurring Thoughts

“No one will ever love me once they really get to know me.” “I sound like a moron when I try to talk politics.” “Standard & Poor’s would never hire me.” Everybody’s got issues. Say something more realistic out loud and repeat as often as necessary until it starts sounding like the truth: “I’m a loveable person.” “I know quite a few things about politics.” “Standard & Poor’s would have to be smoking crack not to hire me.” Here’s what About.com says about defeatist thinking . The key is to pinpoint irrational thoughts, then beat the hell out of them.

Kick the Drug Habit

Stop drinking, smoking weed, or whatever you're doing to support the local drug dealer. Drugs can rouse psychological demons. The National Institute on Drug Abuse says there's an established link between smoking pot and both depression and anxiety.

Anxiety Specifically

Schedule “Worry Time”

From 8:30 a.m. to 9 a.m., every day, worry with abandon. That’s right. From the simple stuff like hav...
