Adjustment of lifestyle should always be considered if you’re feeling depressed or having depressive symptoms.
Lifestyle measures can sometimes be enough to cure depressive symptoms before a serious depression develops.
Lifestyle adjustments can be:
– To slow down a stressful life with too much work or activities.
– Have enough rest and sleep.
– Have a good diet with enough of the necessary nutrients.
– Get some physical exercise.
– Supplement with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, lecithin, amino acids, and essential fatty acids.
– Stimulants like coffee or tea may help against depressive feelings in a moderate amount. However, if you are a heavy user of these stimulants, you should cut down on your consumption.

Reach out and offer help to someone.
Possibly one of the quickest and most successfully time-tested reliefs for depression is to reach out and be of service to someone else. Visit someone in the hospital, nursing home, shut-in or just an elderly or single person who might need a helping hand or a friendly smile. Volunteer at a food pantry, library, church, or soup kitchen. Mow someone’s lawn or wash their car, bake them a pie or some cookies, or deliver a dinner.
Whatever we focus on expands. Focus on your depression and all you can think of will be the myriad of reasons that anyone in your situation would be depressed. The more you do this the more serious your problems will seem.
Focus on caring for someone else and bringing a smile to their face and maybe even listening to their troubles will make your issues seem smaller and your smile will bring out their smile.
