Natural ways to fight back against depression When it comes to depression, the more tools you have in your belt the better. Here are some non-medical ways to ease symptoms of depression. In the short term These tips aren’t a treatment or cure, but they may be able to improve your mood in a pinch. Don’t dwell on being stuck in a dark void. Instead, focus on taking baby steps forward. Listen to your favorite album You know that one song that can make you smile no matter how bad you’re feeling? Research suggests those good feelings can actually be a form of therapy. One review of studies found that listening to music and playing music resulted in a significant reduction of symptoms in people with depression, including improved confidence, self-esteem, and motivation. Get some fresh air When depressed, our protective instinct is to stay inside where it’s safe and predictable. But staying cooped indoors up for days — not to mention weeks — on end is a recipe for restlessness. Research shows that a simple nature walk can improve your mood, as can feeling the warmth of sunshine on your body. You don’t have to go farther than your front stoop. But open that door and feel the sun (or rain!) on your face for at least a few minutes every day. Move your body Mustering energy to exercise when depressed can be grueling, but if you get up and do it, it really helps. Research shows exercise releases endorphins, increase body temperature and blood circulation in the brain, and helps us deal with stress. You don’t have to go for a mile run. Just do what you can, whether that’s a short YouTube workout or walking around the block. Take a hot bath or shower There’s something about sinking into a hot bath or shower that can make it feel like your troubles are literally being washed away. In fact, there’s some research that suggests baths as self-care may have real therapeutic effects. One study found that bathing in hot water 2 times a week for 4 weeks decreased depression symptoms in people with moderate depression.

Sleep can be a primary issue or the symptom of an underlying psychiatric issue ( like depression ) . If sleep is the only issue , try methods like sleep hygiene , deep breathing exercises, yoga ( you can read about these in the internet) , if it still persists contact a psychiatrist.
