Positive coping strategies for depression are steps that individuals can take to improve their health and their outlook on life. They aren't quick fixes or complete cures, but they can make it easier to get through each day.
Boost Your Self-Image
Depression can sap your energy to do anything but the bare necessities of life, sometimes taking care of yourself becomes less of a priority. If you can only do one thing today, wash up. You may be surprised at how far taking a shower and brushing your teeth will go to improving how you feel.
Stick to a Schedule
Feeling depressed can make even basic decisions seem overwhelming. Don't give yourself any room to wonder, "What am I doing today?"
Create a schedule and stick to it from the time you wake up to the time you get out of bed. Praise yourself for all the things you accomplish throughout the day, no matter how small. That will help you feel productive, and that, in itself, is a great confidence booster.
