Turning the mind

Activity Scheduling Activities can be connected to the way you feel. If you track feelings of depression, you may discover that when you are depressed you are more passive and less active. Following the observation that depressed people tend to stop doing pleasurable activities, depression treatments often emphasize increasing the weekly number of pleasurable activities. Additional ways to improve mood:

Surround yourself with people who have a positive impact on you

Invest in friendships and have a “go to” person that you can trust
Become more forgiving - forgive yourself and forgive others

Build on areas of strength and note evidence for new beliefs that replace old negative beliefs (praise yourself for things you accomplish)
Keep a gratitude journal

Coping with Depression
Crisis hotlines the recovery group
Depression - A majority of people experience depression at least once during their lifetime, but they may or may not be aware of it. Understanding what depression is begins the journey toward recovering from depression. You may not realize that depression symptoms are not just emotional. Depression is much more than a low mood, feeling sad, and being irritable. There are cognitive (e.g., self-criticism and hopeless thoughts), behavioral (e.g., isolating from others and having difficulty ’getting started’ with activities), and physical (e.g., sleep problems and change in appetite) symptoms as well. The mind and body are very much connected, and the way that depression affects someone demonstrates that strong connection. Learn more about what depression is by reading the Depression Guide on 7 Cups of Tea’s website. You can also talk to someone about your experience of depression by requesting to chat with one of our listeners.Millions of people suffer from depression everyday? How do I know if I'm depressed or if I'm just sad?

Feedback & Reviews
a very helpful listener
the best!! always understands & always cares!!
Loved it! Very personable and welcoming. Awesome chat.
She was very friendly and easy to talk to
Dana is an AMAZING listener. I was tentative about talking to a teen since I've had bad experiences with people in my age group, so I reached out to an adult. Dana listened as I talked through how I was feeling. She offered support and encouragement. I never felt judged. She helped me to feel better.
