Finding ways to distract yourself from negative thoughts and having coping skills may help. It may be an activity such as doing a craft or playing a musical instrument. It could also be taking a walk/hike, talking to a friend, spending time helping others, or just spending time at the mall.
Allow yourself some latitude and focus on small achievements. Have a to-do list of no more than 6 items and complete one small task early in the day. Try to be patient and give yourself some slack.
Counselors can assist you in assessing your level of depression and managing your emotional state. If you are feeling depressed, seek Counseling.
