Exercise Regularly to release endorphins, strengthen your immune system and give yourself a general sense of physical confidence and well-being.
Meditate- Take a few minutes to sit still, listen to your breathing bringing your attention on the present moment.
Seek Light- Light therapy is one of the simplest answers to depression. Optimize your interior environment by opening the blinds and curtains, and consider a light box or other indoor light therapy.
Reading- Nothing compares to snuggling under a quilt with a good book.
Engage Your Hands in productive, effortful activity that has concrete, satisfying ends. For me of course it is knitting, crocheting and embroidery but even housework and gardening qualify.
Eat a small handful of any of these comfort foods throughout the day -asparagus, chocolate, cashews, blueberries, avocados and drink a cup of warm milk before bedtime.
