1 Spend Time With a FriendYou do not need to unload your problems onto your friend like you would with a counselor, but you can seek out the companionship that your friends provide. Even something as simple as meeting a friend for coffee can lift your spirits. A strong social support network is a proven way to help fight depression.
2 Get Out in NatureGetting outside, feeling the sunshine on your skin and breathing the fresh air are known to improve the mood. Your body uses sunlight to make vitamin D, which also helps to fight depression. Go for a walk in your neighbourhood, go to a local park and swing or just find a bench with a scenic view and take in the scenery.
