Coping strategies for depression.. Even the most positive and pro active person can find it is very difficult to climb past the problems and feelings that come with suffering from depression. There are all sorts of things to think of. Not just how you feel, but how others see you and how it affects your normal every day life. A mother might find it very hard to do something as simple as changing a nappy or bathing their baby, things that before the illness took hold of them were easy. If the illness is very severe a simple thing like going from one room to another or making a cup of coffee can seem insurmountable.

So what can the sufferer do to make it more manageable? They can take tiny, tiny steps. If they find it very hard to just go into the kitchen, put the kettle on and make some coffee then maybe they should do it bit by bit. Perhaps the first part is to go from one room to the other and then sit down for a while and then get the mug, then have a rest, then put the kettle on and rest while it boils and so on. When you can deal with the small tasks speed them up and then move on to biger and bigger ones. But do not give yourself any sort of deadline or dates that you must aim for, take it a day at a time.

Cheer yourself up if you can. Maybe watch a dvd of one of your favourite comedians or a favourite film, something that tickles your funny bone. Laughter really is the best medicine. Chat to someone you know who you know has a great sense of humour and a lifting spirit.
