7 Steps to Help Fight Depression

Depression is a serious condition that affects many people at some point in their lives. You do not have to feel guilty or embarrassed about being depressed. There are many healthy ways to fight depression. These seven easy steps can also be performed as a preventive measure once you have recovered from depression.


  1. 3 Spend Time With Animals

    If you do not have your own pet, consider volunteering at a local shelter. Brushing the cats or taking dogs for a walk can help to lower your stress. Volunteering at a rescue shelter can also help you to feel like you are doing something for the greater good. Blow bubbles and watch the dog try to catch them. You might also consider adopting a companion animal. Caring for a pet will give you something to focus on, and pets provide their owners with unconditional love.
  2. 4 Eat Healthy

    Part of fighting depression is nourishing yourself from within. In addition to caring for your mind and spirit, you also need to nourish your body. A lot of people don’t realize that certain things they eat are changing their mood. Many recent studies point towards gluten causing depression. If you don’t have time to prepare healthy, or particularly gluten-free meal, there are new services like Ion Nutrition that will deliver them straight to your door. Make sure your meals include plenty of vitamins B, C and D. Some good options include roasted root vegetables with a lean protein and some fresh fruit for dessert. Be sure that you are staying hydrated, focusing on water and avoiding caffeine and alcohol.
