A number of studies have shown that alcohol abuse increases the risk for depression. This connection may be because of the sedative effects of alcohol on the brain. Researchers know that heavy alcohol consumption can lead to periods of depression.
Alcohol abuse also can have serious repercussions on a person's life, leading to financial and legal troubles, as well as marital stress. If you're struggling with money or grappling with a failed relationship, you're more likely to feel depressed. Be social; talk to your friends Recognize the reciprocal influences: Tend to your surroundings. Do your dishes & laundry, treat yourself to flowers.
Now is not the time to have a chaotic & messy environment. Have gratitude for what is working in your life Set and work toward goals Get inspired: try something new Recognize your thoughts and feelings
without judgment and without attachment Consider Therapy Avoid alcohol and drugs Don't give up Reduce the stressors in your life e.g., consider dropping a class, reducing your work hours, or taking a break from a stressful relationship Hopelessness is a symptom of depression,
it does not reflect your actual future Being around other people helps you feel less depressed,
better supported, & reminds you to get "out of your head"
and enjoy life Practice relaxation techniques Such as yoga, meditation, visualization, deep breathing... Studies show that regular exercise can be as effective as antidepressant medication at increasing energy levels and decreasing feelings of fatigue.

Consider writing these in a journal or sharing a gratitude with someone else.
