Depression - we don't want to be there!

If you are battling serious depression, you probably need to see a therapist,and perhaps a nutritionist, and maybe get on meds.


However, we all go into a mild depression from time to time and here are some ways that I have found to help me work my way out of it.


Get to a place that has natural light.  Spend lots of time outside.


Exercise, walk the dog, go to the gym, even if you don't feel like it.


Throw stuff away- de-clutter a bit.


Get into another reality- a good book, a movie, etc.


Talk to people when you are out doing errands.


Write down your plan for the day, or week, or year,- figure out what your goals are.


Plan a trip.


Take on a home improvement project.


Join a book group or take a class.


Volunteer to help someone else.


Do some kind of artwork.


Cry, laugh, breathe.


Treat yourself to a favorite food or shop for something for yourself.


Meditate, particularly using the clean-out techniques at the beginning of each meditation.  Then open to new energy to guide you forward.


Keep doing all of the above.


Good luck and I am sure you have additional techniques of your own-  we don't want to be there!  So, til next time- Lia
