Any helpful suggestions for dealing with depression plus anxiety?

See below... Psychotherapy is the treatment of choice to explore and resolve underlying issues and develop coping skills. Medication may or may not be recommended as an adjunct treatment. Also, explore potential benefit of emotional freedom technique (eft, aka tapping). I also encourage clients with anxiety to take on relaxation &/or mindfulness meditation. Wishing you well!

Exercise. Exercise is a great way to relieve stress. Your body releases endorphins during exercise, which can help you feel calm. If you exercise 30 - 60 minutes a day, your stress levels can improve. When stressed, take 5 slow, deep breaths with your eyes closed, then roll your shoulders forward 5 times, then back 5 times. This will slow your heart rate and release tension in your neck and shoulders. Read more...
