In brief: Avoid stress & sleep

Depression is caused by a combination of factors which include our biological predispositions as well as psychological and social stressors.
Getting rid of depression therefore requires a holistic approach that may include treatment with medication(s), improved physical activity, keeping a regular sleep pattern and management of stressful situations. Cognitive therapy helps with the latter.
