When depression hits, it becomes easy to only see the negative in things and in yourself. One way to help overcome these negative feelings is to expose yourself to things that make you happy. Even if you start small, begin introducing the joy of living back into your life. It could be as simple as reading a new book, finding a new recipe, spending time with friends, or trying a new workout routine. Once you find that special something, make an appointment with yourself each day to spend at least 30 minutes doing the things that you enjoy.
It’s easy to let depression take over, but the good news is that you don’t have to let it! Focus on new and exciting things for yourself and watch your mood improve.
