      If you are battling depression, remember that you are not alone. An estimated 17.3 million adults in the United States have experienced at least one major depressive episode at some point. Here are some tips to care for yourself and keep depression at bay.

      When you have depression, you might find it tough to get good sleep. Avoid doing any official or stress-related jobs post 8:00 p.m. Do something that relaxes you, read a book, do some bedtime yoga, drink some herbal tea and so on.

It’s important to stay aware that each of them engages different parts of your brain and this impacts mood. For instance, while doing a chore like say doing the dishes, focus on how the soap and water feel and the smell, this will help you stay in the present moment.

You need to be more kind to yourself and this will in turn help your mental health. For instance, you can find one positive thing about yourself.
