little things that help ease symptoms of depression:

  • turn the lights on and open a window
  • eat something healthy and drink ice cold water
  • find a comforting album to listen to whenever things get bad
  • take a long, relaxing bath
  • do yourself up in full make up and hair
  • be around people, even if you don’t think it will help
  • watch something funny on netflix
  • wear your favorite/most comfortable outfit
  • immerse yourself in a hobby like drawing
  • lose yourself in a really good book or movie

how to ease depressed, by someone who has never been depressed

[TL;DR at end] Actually, as someone who is clinically depressed and working through it with treatment, these things actually do help! The person wasn’t trying to dismiss how encompassing depression is in our lives. It is true that doing these things can help. The hard part is actually doing them. Their intentions are most likely good! And if can help it, try to get yourself to do these activities. Exercise, hygiene, and the rest of these activities are really important. These things are told to me by my counselor who has a legit degree from UT Austin. 

Please understand that a big part of depression is helping yourself! I know it’s really hard and usually you need a LOT of help to be simply ok. But don’t dismiss these. Yes, depression is a serious condition that isn’t easily solved. I’m on two medications, have regular therapy and an averagely good home life and it is still very hard to overcome. But I have to do lots of things for myself. Recovery is very self involved. There isn’t much other people can do for you.

When I was admitted into a behavioral health hospital (A mental hospital, if you will) for planning my suicide, I kid you not when I say the people there didn’t help me. Really, I hated most of the things they told me. But it did remove me from my environment and give me time to think without any stimuli. I was in an unfamiliar environment, I knew nobody, etc. Those doctors didn’t help me. They just asked me questions and made sure I wasn’t going to kill myself, and then saw to it that I was stable and put me in weekly counseling for my problems. So other than that and medications, it was my own battle. I had to sort my own stuff out. Please please please pLEASE do not ignore the things you must do for themselves. People aren’t trivializing your condition, even if it feels like it. It’s hard to do, but start doing nice things for yourself. It’s kind of like the confidence thing- fake it till you make it. And I wish everyone struggling good luck!!

Also, sources:
[exercise and depression]
[harvard health]
[http://www.biomedcentral.com/1471-244X/12/201]
[hygiene and depression]

I’m sure there are plenty of great sources for this if you look into it more. 

[TLDR]It’s a legit thing. Lifestyle choices are VERY important in depression as thinking is one of your main enemies. Trying to make changes to be more active, more social in healthy ways or less social if that’s what you need, eating better, taking care of yourself, etc all help ease symptoms and everyday depression. No, it does not CURE it and it is not the /treatment/ method, but it is very important!!

try your best. not everyone can get all As, and getting all As does not make you better than everyone else. just do the best you can and be the best person you can be.
don’t sleep in class! i know it seems so so tempting but slept my way through geography last year and i got a C in my exam instead of the expected A so…
Don’t tick off your teacher, follow the rules to an extent, get to class on time, respect your classmates and teachers. you know, just be a decent person.
be positive!!! and not just for the first week or so, keep the positivity going throughout the whole school year. if you don’t believe in yourself then why should anyone else?

Thermochromic table by Jay Watson

imagine banging someone on that table

imagine being home alone and seeing imprints on that table

noooooo stop

Imagine having a friend sit at that table for a long while, but when they get up there’s no imprints at all.

What if you got up after trying to console a crying friend, and found that you had no imprints… and they were crying because they missed you?

This went from being inappropriate, to being scary an to just being something sad…
