- Watching Comedy Shows
- Reading Inspirational Books
- Watching Inspirational Videos
- Spending Time With Your Friends/Family

Don’t Stay Alone
One of the main causes of depression is staying alone. When you have no one to talk to, you get time to think and think more. And this overthinking can take you into past, regrets, and other ailed feelings due to which you get depressed and as a result, spend sleepless nights. Always try to be with your friends, family, or someone else with whom you feel comfortable and enjoy good food. If you want to share something with them then, do so.
Start Writing What You Feel
Well, this is the tried and tested natural way to fight depression. When you are in depression, there might be a chance that you don’t want to spend time with anyone. But you may have lots of things to share. If you aren’t comfortable sharing with someone else, then you should note it down in your diary or a page. Just find a place where you can feel free and comfortable like a terrace, hilly area, waterfall, or any of your favorite places. And start writing whatever you are going through or whatever is making you disturbed. Don’t think about language or handwriting, just write whatever you want. Don’t keep those pages with you, destroy them into pieces and get back to your normal schedule. It will make you feel relaxed.
Listen to Happy and Hip-Hop Songs
Some people listen to music or songs when they feel depressed. It is advisable to never go through sad songs because that may leave you with tears and regrets. Always listen to hip hop, disco, or happy songs because that is the thing that makes you feel happy.
Make Walking Part of Your Routine
Whenever you feel sad, just wear your running/jogging/sports shoes and go for a walk. Walking is an exercise that keeps you away from stress and depression. It keeps you distracted from your thoughts because your organs will start working and leave you tired after a long walk due to which you feel sleepy. And this is what you need, ‘A Deep Sleep’. Just take a glass of water after being relaxed and sleep comfortably.
Keep Your Living Space Organized and Decorated
Messy things leave you in mess. So, it is suggested to keep your bedroom or living area clean and organized. If you know decoration (even a little bit), just decorate your room with colors, teddies, décor items, and others that bring joy and happiness whenever you enter. Lights play a vital role, so always ensure that you have bright and colorful light around you.
