Involve Yourself in Social Activities

You may feel like you don’t want to, but try to keep up with social activities.


Often when you’re depressed, it feels more comfortable to retreat into your shell, but being around other people will make you feel a lot better.


Check and see if there are local events or activities available near you that you could involve yourself in, via facebook groups, community blogs or local noticeboards. If that’s a step too far for you right now then go for a walk, do some exercise or do an activity solo, but try to do these in a place with other people around you – existing in spaces that are shared by other people can help you feel more connected and part of something, even if you’re not directly socialising with anyone straight away.
