For those suffering with depression, there is much you can do to bring healing to your memories, thoughts and emotions. Even for victims of clinical depression, medications become more effective once the emotional baggage is dealt with.
-Seek help in learning how to handle stress in healthy ways
-Maintain a healthy diet, get sufficient rest and exercise
-See a counselor or join a support group for assistance in processing past emotional trauma
-Forgive and ask for forgiveness promptly
-Build your self-worth by inserting your name in Scripture verses of your Heavenly Father’s love for you and meditating daily on them.
-See a doctor to determine if medication is necessary.
Recovering from depression is a long difficult journey, but with the help of your Heavenly Father, you too can have a healthier, happier life.
Why, my soul, are you downcast?
for I will yet praise him, my Saviour and my God.
