Tips for
Overcoming
Depression
Speak to a therapist
 Speaking to a trained therapist about your
symptoms, feelings, and the effects of depression
can help combat loneliness and give you a
professional insight into the disorder. Based on your
symptoms, the therapist can recommend dialectical
behavior therapy (DBT) or cognitive behavior therapy
(CBT)
Eat healthy diets
 Avoid skipping meals. Eat every three to four hours to avoid
feeling irritable and exhausted.
 Eat foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids to boost your moods
 Include leafy greens, beans, eggs, chicken, and citrus fruits in
your meals to boost B vitamins
 Avoid depressants such as alcohol
 Limit the intake of stimulants such as coffee and soda
 Consult a dietician for healthy eating guidance
Reduce stress
 Avoid stressful situations at work or home
 Talk to friends and relatives
 Indulge in relaxation therapies such as meditation and
yoga
 Distract yourself through music, reading, and other fun
activities
 Join a support group
Exercise
 Regular exercise can help combat depression
and prevent a relapse once you have recovered.
Exercising increases the dopamine levels in your
brain that help elevate your moods, leaving you
feeling good about yourself.
Set SMART goals
 When struggling with depression, you often lack
interest in daily activities and struggle to
complete tasks or concentrate. This leads to low
achievement, which contributes to low self-
esteem. To fight such feelings, consider
developing specific, measurable, achievable,
realistic, and timely (SMART) goals.
