Coping with depression
Depression is far more common than most people know, which is why so many people do not do anything about the depressive symptoms they are experiencing. You can be sure that a number of people you know will have suffered depression at some time or another, and there is no shame in having depression, admitting it and getting treated for it. Here are some other ways you can cope with depression.
One of the easiest ways in which you can get your depression under control is to speak to a doctor or counsellor about how you are feeling, and get professional help. Many people feel shame about depressive symptoms, and this stops them from going to doctors. However the best treatment you can get is from someone who has expert knowledge in this area, so consider it.

Try to move past depression
Many people remain in a depressive state because they feel that they are unable to carry on with their lives as they once were, just feeling too unhappy. If you can try to make plans and carry on with your day to day life as much as possible you may find that some days are better than others, and this makes you feel as though there is hope. Even if you just keep to one or two things a week, it is something that will start your healing.
Look after your body
One of the things which is very common in people suffering from depression is a tendency to let things slide with their health and well-being. You need to get out of bed every day, even if it is just to have a shower, and you should try to get a short walk or some exercise in as well. Make sure that you are eating healthily, as much as you can, and keeping your body in the best possible condition, even if your mind isn’t quite there yet.
Keep loved ones around you
The worst thing you can do when suffering from depression is push your loved ones away. These people will be able to listen to you and provide support more than anyone else can, so try to keep seeing friends and family every week, and talking to them about how you are feeling.
