In brief: Depression Prevent

Spend time with your friends.
If a religion, practice it routinely. Exercise - but do not overdo it. Insist on restorative sleep. Avoid anything more than infrequent alcohol intake. Emphasize happines, fun, and pleasure as part of your life goals. Mindful meditation practiced routinely helps. Being grateful, forgiving youself/others, engaging in flow experiences. Have clear goals and find meaning.
