I battled depression for 40 years, 98% of it was misery.
I used drugs, alcohol, and chasing short-term joy as a way to escape.
Now, I feel good 90% of the time and have even started helping others with mood and anxiety disorders through various programs and clinics.
To manage my depression effectively, I've made six key changes in my life. I want to tell you about how to use each of these effectively.
Remember, these worked for me. That doesn't mean that all (or any) of these will work for you in your context. But, I believe they will definitely help almost anyone with severe depression.
1. Maintaining a consistent sleep schedule
2. Ensuring regular and balanced meals
3. Staying active
4. Being selective about engaging in fantasy worlds
5. Prioritizing self-care despite the challenges
6. Avoiding behavioral insomnia
These changes have transformed my life, even though I acknowledge that I'm a high-maintenance person, and I encourage others facing similar struggles to consider these strategies for a better quality of life.
