Healthy lifestyle &: balance. There are some people who get endogenouse depression - this migh recur even w healthy lifestyle. Don't isolate. Spend time w people. Use your support system. Get out. Don’t stagnate at home. Work to get 8 hours or > of sleep per night & eat healthfully. Daily aerobic exercise is a big +. Recommend the “Feeling Good Book' by Dr. David Burns.
