Feeling Depressed? Look Up

  • Making connections with others will help you feel better about yourself and the world around you. Remember, you are not alone. Join a local club or group if you are having trouble making connections.
  • Eat well and exercise when you are feeling blue. Exercise and healthy food release happy chemicals in your brain. Treat your body nicely for the reward of happiness.
  • Be sure to take a break. Sometimes, we get so caught up in our everyday work that we forget to take time for ourselves. Give yourself a break and allow your mind to recharge.
  • Ask for help. If you have been feeling down for a while, be sure check in with a professional. A fresh perspective help bring clarity.
  • Start listing the things that you’re thankful for in life. List two or three things each morning and be grateful for them. Watch your perspective change.
