Hi doctor,

I have thoughts that always lead to depression. It is about my career, relationships with parents, friends, etc. I always overthink my problems, and this leads to headaches. I also eat less and think more about my problems. How to overcome this? Kindly suggest.



Welcome to

I understand your concern. You seem to suffer from depression. Depression is a common illness with effective treatment strategies.

I suggest you consult a psychiatrist to assess your problems in detail. I also suggest you follow the following instructions:

1) Practice deep breathing, yoga, and meditation regularly.

2) Involve in physical activities daily for 30 minutes.

3) Sleep and wake up on time.

4) Eat a healthy and nutritious diet.

4) Connect with your friends and share your problem.

I hope this helps you.

Thank you.
