How to Dump Depression and Get Back Into the Game of Life

Posted on: March 25, 2012


  1. Practice self-nurturing and be gentle with yourself
  2. Allow yourself a break of a few days if you need one
  3. And then, start moving – go for a walk, exercise, get your blood flowing
  4. Do not put energy into resisting the depression – it only makes it worse
  5. Volunteer or help someone who is in a worse situation than you are
  6. Focus on gratitude – write 5 things a day you are grateful for
  7. Journal about your feelings, challenges, and possible solutions
  8. Bring in the light – open the curtains or go out in the sunshine – spend time in nature
  9. Put your negative thoughts to the test by asking yourself if they are absolutely true
  10. Start focusing on possibilities and plans for the future.
  11. Make a plan and take baby steps, celebrating each one along the way
  12. Seek professional help if you need it    Email:
