depression is not a good feeling, i think everybody agrees to that. whenever im depressed, i just sleep myself out so that the next day id be able to somewhat forget the things that depressed me. how about you?

Depression is just a normal reaction to a certain vent in our life such as losing a loved one, losing a job,or a quarrel with your friend.It can affect your activities of daily living because you feel weak and disinterested. Whenever I'm depressed, I do sleep a lot, watch a movie and just stay in my room.

When I am depressed I like to listen to some music and I have been getting into doing yoga and pilates. It helps get my emotions an outlet and I feel so great afterwards. I did pilates for about 20 minutes today and it felt amazing afterwards.

I've created a therapy fund as my shield to fight off small bouts of depression. I put money in an account when I'm a bit down. I don't intend to touch this money unless I really need some therapy, and this money could pay for it. Having that amount on the side also helps me look forward to better days ahead. And the possibilities of what I could buy with that money.

I think get drunk is one of the good idea to do when you're depressed. It maybe not so healthy but I'm sure it can wash away and change your feelings... Cheers!!!

hi, When i am depressed,i get back to the past and try to recollect situations which i enjoyed the most ELSE I try to spend time alone,observing the nature. Mostly i avoid talking to others at this time,becoz i get extremely irritated during this period.
