Reach out to others.
Helping other people is a wonderful way of taking the focus off yourself and how you are feeling. Helping others feels good as well, so it’s a great mental trick to lift your mood. There are depression help organizations, depression rehab centers, and doctors who specialize in stress, depression, and anxiety. The best people to go to, however, are friends and family. The key is to find someone who will listen and let you clear your mind instead of voicing every opinion they have.
