As we are shifting rapidly towards a monotonous life, depression has become a regular visitor in it. At some time, we all have felt less energized, tired and low. These feelings often attract negative energy that might impact the normalcy of our daily life. At several times, the negative energy makes us question our purpose in life, what are we doing and who are we. It is completely normal to feel extremely happy at one moment and extremely sad at the next. Although, the concern arises when these fluctuations in our mood continue for a considerable time and thereby affects our daily life. An individual with depression or negative thoughts most of the time separates himself/herself from their family members, friends and other people who matter. One of the significant symptoms of depression is disturbed sleep patterns. Changed eating habits or loss of appetite and uncontrollable mood fluctuations. While medical help is a necessity for such situations, studies have proved that there are even natural ways to fight negative energies. Some yoga asanas can help in developing positive energy by removal of negative energy.
