My favorite ways I deal with depression is exercise....Yeah, its hard to get started at times. But once I get out the door, I'm ready to get started. I do struggle to continue at times, but I remind myself how much better I will feel when I'm done. And I do!!! I feel like I can conquer the world! I have so much energy...I'm looking for stuff to do.
My other method is my pets....I have 3 cats and they are so different from each other. Watching them I realize how they are like me. Mitze doesn't like to be bothered until she is ready for you. Shadow is very timid....like myself, he was abused and is very standoffish. But he can be soooo of affection. And then there is Sophie....she is a wild thing. She loves to play and is full of energy. She keeps the other 2 active. I can sit back and watch them for hours; The one thing they all have in common is purring. I love how they will be laying next to me in the morning just purring....it is so calming. When I am having a "moment" I just grab me a cat and start petting. The purr motors start up immediately! Stress just rolls right out of me.
