Simplify your life. Cut back on obligations when possible, and set reasonable schedules for goals.
Consider writing in a journal to express pain, anger, fear or other emotions.
Read reputable self-help books and consider talking about them to your doctor or therapist.
Don't become isolated. Try to participate in normal activities and get together with family or friends regularly. I know that bed looks like a great place to hide but do try not to isolate.
Take care of yourself by eating a healthy diet and getting sufficient sleep.
Stay focused on your goals. Recovery from depression is an ongoing process. Stay motivated by keeping your recovery goals in mind. Remind yourself that you're responsible for managing your illness and working toward your goals.
Learn relaxation and stress management. Try such stress reduction techniques as meditation, yoga or tai chi. Consider therapy. It has helped myself and many others here in HealingWell.
Structure your time. Plan your day and activities. Try to stay organized. You may find it helpful to make a list of daily tasks.
Don't make important decisions when you're in the depths of depression, since you may not be thinking clearly.
Most of all believe in yourself that you will overcome this bout of depression.
Again a warm welcome to HealingWell.
