Depression is a disorder like any other. It should be treated properly by methods that have been scientifically proven. Two types are proven beyond doubt: antidepressant medicines and cognitive behavior therapy. Exercise has some evidence in cases of relatively mild depression. The evidence for yoga/ meditation in syndromal depression is questionable. Please understand that depression is not same as sadness occuring once in a while.
