How can you cope with depression in a healthy way?

Natural treatment: Exercise is a great way to cope with depression. Eating a healthy diet and supplements (i.e. Vitamin d, b complex and omega 3) can be beneficial. Journaling your thoughts and emotions, going to therapy and light therapy in the winter months are other options. You have to find what works for you. It could be a combination of things. For severe depression medication and therapy work best.

Lifestyle Changes: Lifestyle changes can be a powerful way to treat depression. Research shows that regular exercising (vigorously if your doctor approves) helps. Meditation has also been shown to help for some people. Psychotherapy, especially cognitive-behavioral therapy, has been shown to help. There are many different safe antidepressant medications also - consult your doctor.
