Smiling depression is when someone appears fine but is scared of being seen by others as being depressed – so they cover it up. Are you showing a smile on the outside while feeling miserable on the inside? You're not alone, and help is here.
The Employee Assistance Program (EAP or Reliant Behavioral Health for OEBB members) provides free access to a mental health professional who can help you get real happiness back.
One way to cope with your chronic pain is through healthy thinking. Here's how it works:
Stop. Notice your thoughts. When you notice a negative thought, stop it in its tracks and write it down.
Ask. Look at that thought and ask yourself whether it is helpful or unhelpful.
Choose. Choose a new, helpful thought to replace a negative one. Ask yourself: What might happen if I tried to believe the healthier thought?
Changing your thinking will take some time. Be patient with yourself and remember with daily practice, it will get easier and feel more natural.

Green tea: Green tea includes Gabba, a compound that helps with mental health.
Dark chocolate: Dark chocolate contains nutrients, antioxidants, and magnesium, with little sugar. The higher the cocoa content (60% and above), the more it relaxes your whole system. It's a nice way to unwind. The general rule is the more bitter, the better.
Water: Water is something that shouldn't be overlooked for improving our mood. Water stimulates other processes in the body that might otherwise make you feel like you are experiencing stress. A tall glass of water is helpful for your body and your mind.
