What little things can you do daily to fight off depression?
For me, diet, exercise, meditation, and writing help me keep grounded. What other techniques help people stay on top of their depression?
Thinking of all the blessings I have and for all I have to be thankful for! The Lord has blessed me so much more than I deserve, why should I be depressed??
As a person suffering from depression, I take control of crisis by acknowledging my condition, having scheduled tasks (at least 3 projects) for the day; opening the drapes in the house; making the bed so I do not go back to it; not watching tv all day, specially if the programs are sad or negative; taking time for meditation.
I've suffered from depression for a while and the thing I've found that really helps the most is exercise. I really love running, but I think any exercise you find that you enjoy would help. Although it can be hard to get outside and start, and you might want to give up a few minutes after you start, I find that if you stick with it then you get this kind of emotional high whilst you're doing it and for a while afterwards. Also, it helps you feel better in the long run because you have something to look forward to and you know you're doing something for your body and well-being.
I hope you start to feel better soon!
