Depression Help Tips
Depression is difficult, you don't just "snap out of it" or "will" your way through it. You need to actively fight against your depression. Here are some tips to get started. Please note: These tips are not intended to be a cure for depression or a substitution for therapy or medication. Furthermore, if you are having thoughts of hurting yourself or have an emergency, then call 911.
Become physically active, just taking a walk can help.
2. Get Active:
Engage in a fun activity, maybe something you used to enjoy.
3. Stop Isolating:
Participate in social or religious activities.
4. Talk About It:
Spend time with other people that you can talk to.
5. Realistic Expectations:
Do small tasks as you can rather than all at once.
6. Find Hope:
Set goals for yourself and plan events and activities to look forward to.
7. Change Your Stinking Thinking:
Try to change your negative thoughts into positive ones.
Take deep breathes, listen to music, take a bath, find what works for you.
Get out of bed, shower, put on clean clothes, brush your teeth, do your hair and/or make-up, and any other self-care tasks. You'll feel better about yourself and have a routine to start your day.
10. Healthy Habits:
Along with self-care, you need to eat and sleep right. Eat healthy food at least three times a day and sleep eight hours. Go to bed and wake up at regular times each day.
