5 Ways to Physically Cope with Depression

Most people know that Depression is hard to cope with. First acknowledging that you have it, and then earnestly working to overcome it, can feel insurmountable. A common misconception people have is that depression is all in your head. In fact, depression can be helped by doing physical things. Thankfully there are some ways to fight depression that aren't too difficult and that can actually be enjoyable.

  1. Schedule one thing you have to do every day and stick to it. Having something you can't skip out on every day is a great way to force motivation, Whether it's work or something to make your body better like exercise, forcing yourself to stick to some kind of schedule will help your battle with depression.
  2. Exercise. Though it can be hard, getting the will to exercise can help immensely. When you exercise, your brain releases hormones that help you feel better, so making exercise a regular part of your day can improve your overall mood immeasurably.
  3. Treat yourself every day. Though it is difficult, finding something good every day is a fantastic way to discourage negative emotions. Give yourself something good and/or remind yourself of something good to bring some light to your dark day. If you give yourself something you want every day, then every day you will receive something positive, which can help improve your mood.
  4. Find a good support system. Perhaps one of the most difficult things to do when depressed is to be social. Although it sounds easy, finding a good support system can be hard. Usually friends and family as well as pets are there to help, however dragging yourself to meet them or anyone is a task so herculean many find even the idea too hard to comprehend. But their support can help you feel better, so you need to make an effort to use it.
  5. Force yourself to do something social and non-isolated. Leaving your living space when depressed can feel like a monumental task. But if you force yourself to go out there and meet with people you will start to feel better. Simply put, when people socialize they feel better. That's not to say you need to do it every day, but going out with friends or joining a club and making yourself go through with it will help.

Depression is difficult. Exploring how to cope with depression and still lead an ordinary life can feel overwhelming. With these practices, however, the voyage can become a little more bearable. Along with these methods, many people find alleviation from depression with over-the-counter non-prescription formulas.
