if you feel depressed it is hard to motivate yourself because you want that feeling to go away. it is good to set up a plan for yourself to work out. it is rewarding to work out and it does so many good things for your body. it is a good idea to keep a journal of your success and start from there. making a goal list and when you accomplish your goal you can cross it off. the depression can decrease with excercise. even cleaning your house can make you feel better because a clean house is a way to distract yourself from the pain of depression.

Think of things you like to do and things you don't like to do. Sometimes if we do the things we love to do to much it leaves us depressed an so we should try things we don't like. Say you don't like walking but you love to paint, sometimes when we feel depressed it might be that we are doing the same thing over and over again so you can try to walk and that gets your blood flowing and might be interesting because you ignore it all the time. And think and things you don't do a lot like maybe baking or reading that could be fun to do something you never do.
