1. Identify our feelings It is not good to force "joy; It is convenient to go through the moments of grief, because it is convenient to tune into our feelings in order to identify them, and thus be able to understand where sadness comes from. We will probably discover that some aspects of our life produce dissatisfaction and discomfort (some aspect of our work, our social or family relationships, etc.)
In this sense, we could say that sadness acts as a warning so that we can reconsider some of the circumstances of our life and modify them if possible.
2. Strive to maintain a positive attitude. A certain positive attitude towards life is useful. "See the glass half full" is a highly recommended daily exercise because overcoming sadness sometimes requires an effort on our part.
3. Perform some individual or group activities. This also helps us improve our mood. In this sense, apart from recommending those that have to do with physical exercise and with nature, each one would have to look for those that are more related.
For some people it may be reading, for others ordering their papers or their clothes or taking care of themselves in some other way.
4. Search professional help. In case the period of sadness is too long, seek help from a Clinical Psychologist specialized in Psychotherapy is a good option because sometimes it is difficult to think alone about what ails us.
Dialogue with the psychologist is a way to open new perspectives to a situation that we have not seen clearly and that over the months is making us fall into a pit of confusion.
If the person does not consult on their own initiative, it would be good if their relatives or other close people would help them ask for help, especially if they present symptoms that may suggest depression .
