Tips to prevent depression

  • Get in a routine: If you’re depressed, you need to follow a routine plan that will divert your mind from negative things. One day melts into the next. Setting a gentle daily schedule can help you get back on track and prevent depression.
  • Set goals: When you’re depressed, you may feel like you can’t accomplish anything. That makes you feel worse about yourself. To push back, set daily goals for yourself. Make your goal something that you can succeed at, like doing the dishes every other day.
  • Eat healthy: There is no magic diet that fixes depression. It’s a good idea to watch what you eat, though. If depression tends to make you overeat, getting in control of your eating will help you feel better. Foods with omega-3 fatty acids (such as salmon and tuna) and folic acid (such as spinach and avocado) could help ease depression. Avoid fried, spicy or other unhealthy food items.
  • Exercise: It temporarily boosts feel-good chemicals called endorphins or happy hormones in the whole blood stream. It may also have long-term benefits for people with depression. Doing a regular exercise can encourage the brain to rewire itself in positive ways. How much exercise do you need? You don’t need to run marathons to get a benefit. Just walking for 45 minutes daily is enough to improve overall body functions.
  • Do something new: When you’re depressed, you’re in a trouble. Push yourself to do something different. Go to a museum. Pick up a book and read it on a park bench. Take a language class.” When we challenge ourselves to do something different, there are chemical changes in the brain. Trying something new, alters the levels of [the brain chemical] dopamine, which is associated with pleasure, enjoyment, and learning.
  • Get enough sleep: Depression can make it hard to get enough sleep, and too little sleep can make depression worse. What can you do? Start by making some changes to your lifestyle. Go to bed and get up at the same time every day. Try not to nap. Take all the distractions out of your bedroom such as computer, TV, etc. In time, you may find your sleep improves.
  • Challenge negative thoughts: In your fight against depression, change how you think and see the things. When you’re depressed, you leap to the worst possible conclusions. The next time you’re feeling terrible about yourself, use logic as a natural depression treatment.
  • Take on responsibilities: When you’re depressed, you may want to pull back from life and give up your responsibilities at home and at work. Staying involved and having daily responsibilities can help you maintain a lifestyle that can help counter depression. 
  • Try to have fun: If you’re depressed, make time for things you enjoy. Do the thing that gives you pleasure.
