Yes, living with depression is no joke but there are so many ways to manage depression by incorporating some simple tips as following:
- Stay active throughout the day. Exercising 30 minutes a day combined with yoga or meditation can produce a significant elevation in mood.
- Isolating yourself from society is one of the most dangerous things you can do to yourself. Just go out, breath some fresh air, engage in various activities with other people, have some friendly talk with them, share your fears and difficulties with a dear one. Never hesitate to open up to your family and close friends. They are eager to hear from you what you are going through and would definitely stay beside you in your fight against depression.
- Keep yourself busy by indulging in your favourite activities which may include singing, dancing, reading or just playing with your pet dog.
- Am I good enough?? Well, that’s a common question each and every one of us has. You don’t have to keep stressing on that because each one of us is born unique. Find out your inborn talent and nurture them with hard work and perseverance.
- By overthinking our mind wanders through ridiculous situations most of which are purely fictional which do not have the slightest chance to occur. Live in the present and stop thinking too much about the future because anything can happen at any time. Try to face problems as they come rather than just running away from them.
- Stay out of negative thoughts as it can only degrade your self-esteem. Surround yourself with positive people and let the positive vibes flow through your mind. This boosts your self-confidence thus making you feel at the top of the world.
- Do not feel embarrassed to seek professional help. Attend regular counselling sessions. They are the ones who can help you the most.

- Get help from support groups. Speak up!! Let others know your fight against depression, the struggles you face in your daily life, your breaking point and the strategies you adapt to survive them.
- Motivation is a powerful tool. Why don’t you try motivating others, helping them conquer the same battle you have been fighting for so long? This attitude can never let you down as it works the other way too.
- A few minutes of silent prayer can bring in a leap of hope by healing the soul from within.
