Alot of people are depressed on a daily basis and many of them are also stressed. Does anyone have any ideas about how to deal with depression and stress without pills?

A great way to deal with stress and depression is to force yourself to every day have some "me" time, even if you have to hide in the bathroom to get it. Sit, close your eyes and take a few deep breaths. Try clearing your mind of everything that is stressing you. Let your mind wander and try not to stay on one thought very long, just let it wander from thought to thought. Keep breathing deeply, with long exhales. This will force the body and the brain to relax, somewhat like self-hypnosis. Try to remember that some things in Life are out of your control and worry only about the things that you can control :)
