Feb. 19, 2019 Hinton News - 3 Your HeaLth Tips For Coping With Depression While Traveling (NAPS)--According to a recent Uni- versity :d Phoenix~ survey, 39 percent of respondents say they have personally experienced depression. With the hol- iday travel season under way, Univer- sity of Phoenix social sciences program chairs Mary Jo Trombley, Ph.D N.C.C and l)eAnna" Henderson, Ph.D L.EC N.C.C say that living with chronic or situational depression can be challeng- ing to handle, and travel can add addi- tional burdens. What Is Depression? "lhe Americana Psychological Asso- ciation defines depression as a common and serious medical illness that nega- tively affects how you feel, the way you think and how you act. qhe association lists common symptoms of depres- siou as including feelings of sadness or depression, change in sleep patterns and eating habits, loss of energy, feelings of fatigue, h)ss of interest in activities, and the inability to think, concentrate or make decisions. According to Dr. Trombley, these symptoms can become exacerbated when traveling. She states that traveling should m)t be seen as a cure lbr depression. It can be a way to obtain temporary relief but worry, stress, pressure and londiness are contributing factors to depression and are often present for travelers. "Traveling comes with chaoges in routine, pressures of time commitments, and changes in eating, sleeping and exer- cising patterns" Dr. Heoderson added. "'1 hese changes call trigger a sense of not beillg in control and increase the sense of depression:' Tips for Traveling with Depression l)epression can be challenging, l)rs. Trombley and Heuderson provide the following strategies to help individuals cope when traveling. Plan aheadt For sonleonle who may be struggling with depression, it is best to plan lor travel as opposed to making an impulsive trip Plan as nmch of the trip as possible Know your mute and possible delays, and have snacks in case you are delayed Build in t-hough time to travel through airports and security check- points iftlying to your destination. Practice self-management: Sdfqnau- agement is tile ability to manage your personal reactions to responsibilities and challenges in work and lile. "1 his becomes critical during times of adapting to chang- You den't have to let the stress of travel make depression worse, ex- perts advise. ing situations. Recognizing triggers and your body's response to unfamiliar and stressful situations can help keep depres- sive symptoms at bay. Use appropriate coping strategies: Techniques that help people manage stressful and/or traumatic situations are coping strategies. 'lhese strategies can inchde the use of mindfulness, guided imagery, deep breathing exercises, and progressive muscle relaxation. Addi- tionally, reaching out to support systems during this time can diminish feelings of loneliness during travel. Finally, the use of humor can be efl~xtive in reducing stress Get a sufficient amount of sleep, exercise, and eat well: Travel can be exhausting. It is important to maintain patterns of sleep and healthy eating while traveling. Moreover, the main tenance of an exercise routine can also help reduce stress and release endnr- phins while traveling It is also impor- tant to limit alcohol consunlption as alcohol is a depressant and may exacer- bate depressive symptoms. Be realistic about your travel plans: Recognize that even though you have planned your travel, unplanned situa- tions can occur. Maintaining a Ilexible stance call reduce tile amount of stress experienced if travel does not go as plamled. Also, while travel may alleviate some depressive synlptonls, do not be alarn'led if your symptoms return once the travel has ended.
