Quiz – Are You Depressed?

Are you depressed? Sometimes it’s hard to tell if we’ve just fallen into a slump, need a change, are recovering from a disappointment or are becoming seriously and clinically depressed. A good way to start figuring out your own feelings is by writing down the feelings you’re experiencing right now. If you are finding yourself losing interest in activities that you enjoyed before and exercise and good eating aren’t helping your mood, you may be depressed.

Below are some of the main symptoms of depression. This isn’t a clinical test but a general guide to see if you have some of the main symptoms of depression. Count how many of the symptoms below that you have and tally them up.  Look up the results below and read our suggestions on how to turn depression around!



Here are some of the signs:

anxiety

Results

3-5 Points – You may be depressed. Try talking to a friend or loved one to see if you can pull out of this slump. Choose friends that help you feel good about yourself. Spend time focusing on things that “fill your bucket” and give you a reserve of energy to draw from. Try a creative project to lift your spirits! If these things don’t help, consider seeing a doctor for help!




5+ Points – It sounds like you are moderately to severely depressed – It doesn’t mean you can’t turn things around though! Consider getting professional help! A good counselor can help you figure out the core issues that are bothering you and help you feel happier and more in control of your life. If counseling isn’t an option, start journaling the core problems that are bothering and start doing your own research to find solutions to a problem. See if there are any free counseling resources available to you! Take advantage of any free hotlines to help people who are struggling with severe depression!

Note – This is not medical advice or a professional diagnosis – please seek professional help if you are having suicidal thoughts immediately.

Ways to help turn depression around:

Medication – There are many medications that can help with depression, but they need to be prescribed. Talk to your doctor abour your symptoms and see if thats something that can work for you.

Therapy – Psychotherapy is a really effective tool that can help you get to the root of your issues and figure out what triggers are happening in your life that are causing you to feel stuck. Getting those root issues worked out can help you feel like a new person that doesn’t even feel a need to take medication.

Exercise – Exercise is a well know antidote for depression. It is a great way to get natural dopamine flowing in the brain and help you get clarity in life decisions.

Sleep – Poor sleeping habits or insomnia can wreak havoc on your peace of mind. Make sure you are getting a full nights sleep every night.

Eating Habits – Excessive sugar, refined carbohydrates and junk food can contribute to a depressed mood. These foods make it harder for us to think clearly and feel ‘up’. Focus on eating lots of fruits and vegetables, healthy fats and take vitamins and see what they does for you. Cut out junk food for a week and see how you feel!

    • Aarti says:

      Be relax…get enough sleep about 7-8 hrs…..listen music…eat healthy food…drink fruit juice…n try to busy yourself in doing things which makes you happy….and don’t get distracted by other thoughts…and doing exercise will help you to improve your body functions…

  29. Kat says:

    If you have to ask yourself if you’re depressed then you probably aren’t…sometimes it gets so far to the point where you just completely lost feeling and motivation for happiness you can be happy one minute but at the end of the day it’s just not even worth it

  118. Chey says:

    I took this test just to see what kind of crap they were going to throw at us. This is in no way a concrete test and it has a lot of flaws. I got 9, and I know for a fact I’m not depressed. But I do have anxiety and a lot of these symptoms overlap with other mental and physical health problems as well as simple things like increased stress. Don’t worry about your result, but if you are worried about your mental health, talk to your doctor. Not the internet.

    guys stop commenting how many points you have. If you think you have depression get yourself clinically tested. This is not real. So stop “bragging” that you have depression. It hurts the reputation of people like me with actual mental illness.
