Distract Yourself

There were a couple of times when I felt really low, and some people could pick up on that (often those with similar experiences).

I remember having a conversation with someone who recommended to “distract yourself”. Hobbies, going out, whatever it is. Just something easy-going, no big thoughts, just something fun to help you lift you out of the depression.

I chose to go to YouTube, and do some random searches for things with “fun” in it, and thankfully there’s quite a bit out there for that. 🙂

In the end I ended up back to my science fiction roots, and after a while I was starting to feel somewhat better, so I ended up writing three science fiction stories myself.

There are many little things you can do to feel better. Just do them on a consistent basis. It helps raise the low mood of the depression for a while (I’m not sure what the medical reason is for this is, but it does work).
