2. Reduce your stress
When you’re under any kind of stress, your body actually produces more of a hormone called cortisol. In the short-term, this can really be something that can be considered as a good thing because it can help to gear you up to cope with whatever is causing the stress in your life and whatever the stresses of modern life throw your way.
Over the long run though, it can cause many problems for you and your anhedonia, including the very real threat of depression, which is obviously the last thing you need when you’re already experiencing a much lower level of enjoyment in your life.
The more you learn about, and use various techniques to reduce stress, the better you will feel about your anhedonia because it will reduce your risk of becoming depressed, which is something that anyone with anhedonia needs to avoid like the plague as it will only make things worse for them in the short term and in the long term.
