Fight Your Depression with No Money and (Almost) No Effort

Depression is something that affects millions of people to varying degrees. If you are suffering from mild depression, you don’t necessarily need expensive medications or hourly visits with a therapist. There are ways to kick yourself back into gear, with hardly any effort and minimal, if any, expense.

Mild depression does not have to turn into something more serious. These are some simple steps you can take when you feel a gloomy cloud over your head to keep it from escalating. If you think your symptoms might indicate moderate or even severe depression (e.g. if everything on this list seemed stupid and useless), speak with a physician or a mental health professional as quickly as possible to get some additional support. Heavier depression might not clear up on its own without some psychotherapy, medication, or a combination thereof.
