When my depressive symptom is not that bad, I got out and drive around the city, or even going window shopping. When I am severly depressed, that's the time I call friends. When they are not available, I just go to counseling center.
I use to manage depression, listening musiq, playing violen and i like chocolates, and i feel i get refreshed after having my chocolates. And best remedy is Meditation, try breathing exercise, it will help you balance and handle depression.
When i am in low mood, in a dejected state,.. i usually watch TV, and most times i keep myself aloof,and in the evening times i used to go a long slow walk all alone.. and come home to have a good sleep.
