We are living in covid times where there are lots of uncertainties. Bad economic times have resulted to job losses and collapse of businesses. Many people do not have finances to take care of themselves and their dependents. When a person is no longer in a position to fend for their family, stress creeps in. The unemployment and uncertainity is acting as a trigger to depression.
Lack of enough sleep is among the major causes of clinical depression. Doctors recommend that an adult get at least 8 hours of sleep every day. Bad sleeping habits can trigger sleep loss. Ensure your sleeping area is comfortable, avoid using phones or laptops in bed. Avoid body stimulants eg caffeine just before bed. Good sleep will let your body and mind rest therefore you wake up feeling rejuvenated.
Lack of enough vitamin D.
You most definitely know vitamin D is needed to build strong bones. But do you also know that it is essential for brain health? Unfortunately, most people are vitamin D deficient. Mid-morning and late afternoon sunlight exposure stimulate vitamin D production in the skin. Doctors advise 5 to 15 minutes of daily exposure. Vitamin D deficiency lowers the body’s serotonin levels. Low levels of serotonin, the chemical that sends signals between nerve cells, could trigger depression.
