First, I have to go on more walks; being out in nature is very peaceful and relaxing. I need to breathe fresh air... well I have my doubts about the city air... but either way, I need to get out more.
Second, I need to start running again. I love running. It feels great and it's a small accomplishment with every mile I run.
Third, I need to diet. I'm sure that certain fatty foods can cause bad vibes, and so I'm going to try eating little to no carbs once again.
Fourth, I need to start meditating. I've never really done it, but my mind definitely needs to be shut down or calmed down every now and then. Lately I've been having some intense panic attacks, so I really need to find an outlet for that. It would be really beneficial for me, for my mental health and general stability.
Fifth, getting a job. I've got that one down, just haven't started yet. There are many requirements that I need to get done for my new job, like getting my fingers prints done. I'm actually waiting to get them done as I'm writing this. It's taking forever. I would have had it done sooner, but I went to the wrong place first and lost an hour. Should have gone yesterday, by was too lazy to leave the house. Sigh. I'm just glad to have found a new job that doesn't require me to slice meats extremely thinly at the request of sometimes rude clientele.
Sixth, writing. I need to start writing a lot more. I've lost my desire to write, which is terrible, as I'm an English Major with a concentration in Creative Writing. I need to write. I need to find some new inspiration. I'll work on it.
This is all I could think of, but I'm sure there is more I could be doing to actively fight off depression. What do you do when you're feeling down? Depressed? Anxious? Comment and let me know what you do or what I could be doing to deal with this. Thanks guys.
