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 âgo toâ person that you can trustBecome 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

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 âgetting startedâ 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 Teaâs 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?

I'm Jenna. I've been here for 5 years and it has been an impactful time in my life both for my own well-being and having the privilege to support others. My main focus on chat topics is anxiety, bipolar depression, DID, and trauma chats. You can find a full list of topics I support down below under categories. I work almost non-stop at my real life job which unfortunately has a huge impact on my availability. For this reason, I am not able to take on long-term members at this time until I am able to find a balance.â¥I only take scheduled chats for 1 hour a day based on my work scheduleâ¥My InvolvementActive Listening 1Depression Support Team LeaderFeed Team LeaderForum MentorPeer Support LeaderSafety PatrolVerifying ListenersMy Twinderfuls:@asthebeesays@coolvibes@fluffyUnicorns84@Teagan@vivelespatates@wonderfulPumpkin71
*Not taking new chats at the moment due to time constraints!**Life is a journey that everyone goes through. Think of it as aÂ story told by you. There are many ups in life as well as many downs but it is up to the author of each story to determine the next chapter.* ~AnyaÂ Members/GuestMental health is important 365 days/year.Â Many people suffer from mental health issues but they are too afraid to speak about it because of the stigma all around us. But whatâs harder than dealing with mental health issues, is pretending that you arenât struggling. You shouldnât have to pretend like you are always okay, out of fear that others will judge you or talk about you or think any less of you. No matter what you are dealing with, you are still you. The only thing that matters is that you know your strength and your courage, and let me tell you, everything that you are is more than enough, no matter who you are or what you are going through. So donât be ashamed of any part of it. Your battles are what shape you into that strong and amazing person. And no matter what anyone tells you, itâs okay not to feel that you are strong and amazing every day. Itâs okay not to believe it for a while. Itâs okay to struggle. I assure you, you are not alone. Every single one of us goes through that at some point or another. I will always be here to listen to your story, and I will not ever judge you, or make you feel ashamed of what you are going through, or see you as anything less than the wonderful person you are. Because I know that at the end of the day, the one who has the courage to speak about it, is the one who is the strongest of them all. ListenersI want you all to remember that you guys are truly amazing. Spending time on here to help others during your free time shows dedication, compassion, and kindness on your part. Thank you so much for doing this. I know that all of our fellow members truly appreciate it! Got a question for me?
