We all experience stages of sadness, tiredness or lack of interest in our daily life to a greater or lesser extent. However, if those stages extend themselves in time and the symptoms intensify we may be suffering from a depression and we may be in need of an adequate help to overcome it.  If it has been more than two weeks since you have been specially tired or downhearted, if you feel you no longer enjoy the activities you used to enjoy and your sleep and appetite are altered you should go see a specialist. In addition, there are other things you can do that will help you improve:

BE UNDERSTANDING WITH YOURSELF: Understand depression and accept you are going through a difficult moment and that you can overcome it just like you have overcome others in the past.

FIND SUPPORT AND COMPANY: Hanging with people who appreciate you and value you, people with whom you can spend a nice time and keep a healthy relationship based on trust will be very beneficial for you. Avoid isolating yourself. Socialising is a great tool to overcome depression.

LITTLE BY LITTLE: When we are depressed we enter into a passive state that ends up becoming a vicious circle of inactivity and feelings of low self-steem as well as personal inability. Remember that getting started is what matters, going little by little, taking baby steps. The only way up a ladder is step by step.

TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF: Exercising a little bit, such as going for a walk, and following an adequate diet regulates your body, helps you sleep, improves your defenses and provides you with the necessary energy to carry out your daily activities.

NEW INTERESTS: Find a new hobbie, a new activity or new acquaintances that encourage you and trigger your interest. That thing you always wanted to do that you think about from time to time. Now is the time. Treat yourself with something you like doing, even if it may look like a bit of an effort at the beginning.
