8 Tips For Overcoming Depression

1. Listen to Comedy – Spotify has 24-7 laughs to break up those dark thoughts.
2. Aromatherapy – Lavender is a lovely scent to lift the spirits. Ylang Ylang, Bergamot and Chamomile can lift the mood as well.
3. Read “Spiritual Books” on audio- Books that uplift the spirit like “You Are A Badass” by Jen Sincero and “The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck” by Mark Manson can inspire and uplift you.
4. Give yourself a treat- A walk in nature. A Hot Carob (my substitute for a Hot chocolate, carob powder, maple syrup and hot water). A hug. Self-hugs can be very satisfying. Even if they are just in your mind.
5. Don’t drink alcohol – Alcohol is a depressant and will only increase the negative thoughts and feelings.
6. Create something to look forward to.
7. Take Vitamin D – Vitamin D deficiencies have been linked to depression and SAD.
8. Help Someone – A great way to get out of your head is to offer assistance to another.
