      I go out for a walk, listen to good music or to an inspiring podcast. Doing things that makes me feel better like cooking a nice meal or just cleaning the house. I like to keep myself busy so I try scheduling different activities with friends and family.

      ^ that’s only after I’ve gotten all my tears/frustrations/pent up emotions out, cause you gotta let yourself feel, to heal ya know 👍 and then that’s when i try to uplift my mood

      I look for music in my liked songs with a more upbeat rhythm lyrics so I don’t keep myself stuck in a lower energy, and i make myself move around/dance a little to start to lift my mood even when I don’t feel like dancing (even the littlest of moves, moving your head, tapping your foot, shimmying, it helps)

      Find a craft or hobby to work on.

      I concentrate on my job. When I get caught up in it I sometimes forget about how I feel and about my depression. I take on more tasks and I work overtime, so at least that works for me…

      I like to draw. It relieves the stress and I can be in control of what is going on the paper and it's all mine. Comes from my world 🌍

      I color a lot when I'm feeling especially depressed. That, or I read. The more fantasy, the better. Getting lost in a fantasy world with adventures and treasure.. It helps a lot

      I draw. Typically something that reflects my mood. I like to push down on the pencil as hard as possible. And watching funny TV shows. It works well for me. I think everyone has something that works well for them. Some common ones are exercise, music, yoga, etc. I hope you find yours soon. ❤️

      I am 47 and love to color the have to be very intricate posters or books lots of tiny details in them. I also have the best and most unique cat in the world. He comes to bed and sleeps with me his head is either on my shoulder or a little past my hand. He loved having his belly rubbed it is super relaxing to pet his big old long haired belly. It actually put me and my cat to sleep. And on really bad days when i hurt so bad depression overload i go to 2 different cemeteries 1 is of my beautiful nephew who passed away at 8 months19 years ago and the 2nd is where my high-school love soul mate passed away at 17 years old at his grave i sit in front of the headstone and tell him everything thats been going on in my life. When my kids were in school i brought the newest pictures of my kids and i would and still do ask him to watch over (my now adult kids). I sit there and talk to him until i burst into tears. I have to say when im done crying its a huge weight lifted off my shoulders as well as my heart and soul. Sorry if my reply bothers anyone here but those are the ways that i can de-funk ❤️🤗💕

      I work in my garden. The new leaves and fruit give me encouragement

      Generally I meditate or go for a walk sometimes I go sit by the water and watch the boats if you are to do that.
