There’s no magic formula to get through the days and weeks when you’re battling a mental illness like depression.

Some days you’re the one ready and willing to give tips and other days, you’re in desperate need of some new coping mechanisms.

But whatever sort of day you’re having, #HowIFightDepression is here with some real, tested ways to help, so check it out.

12. Quiet resolve.

#HowIFightDepression I don’t fight it. I accept it. I have even learned to appreciate it. I don’t think I’d be where I am today had I never had depression. I study my depression. I know when it’s coming and what to do when it arrives. We’re strong even at our weakest. Bring it.

11. Give yourself a break.

It’s okay if you don’t feel like getting out of bed. It’s okay if you can’t take a shower. It’s okay if you lied & cancelled all plans. Depression is mentally exhausting. It’s okay if all you did today was breathe. Mental illness is as real as physical one.#HowIFightDepression

10. Remember that it lies.

#HowIFightDepression – no matter how you do it, fight it. Remember that Depression is a liar – it takes real concerns & blows them out of proportion, obscures ability to see or believe in solutions, tells you ur stupid for even trying. Depression is a liar. Tell it to Fuck off.

9. Don’t wait until you feel like it.

#HowIFightDepression When you’re depressed, you feel so ugly inside,you don’t want to get out of bed, you don’t want to work out, you don’t wanna do anything. Guess what-DO IT ANYWAY

8. Don’t judge yourself by others standards.

#HowIFightDepression By reminding myself that little things ARE accomplishments to be proud of. It is a big deal for me to get some cleaning done, or answer emails, or SING. Just because those things are easy for others, doesn’t mean they aren’t things for me to celebrate

7. One small task. You’re not alone.

Medication. Therapy. Exercise. Give myself one small task, and complete it; repeat the next day. Remind myself tons of others are fighting it too. #HowIFightDepression

6. Asking for help is brave.

I felt like a loser at the time going to see a doctor. It saved my life.

Honestly, depression steals joy and makes you believe you are worthless.

You aren’t. I assure you. I’m glad I got adjusted.

I’m glad I found the courage for help. #HowIFightDepression

5. It’s not a win/lose scenario.

#HowIFightDepression? I don’t. You can’t fight it, that implies you can just win and it’s over. Depression isn’t a combat scenario. It’s about developing tools to cope with it, live alongside it and not let it bring you down.

4. Don’t stop.

Everytime I break down, I’d wipe my tears. Everytime I feel weak, I’d give myself strength. Everytime I get anxious, I’d fight to be in control. Everytime I give up, I’d remind myself why I shouldn’t stop. Everytime I feel lonely, I’d keep myself company. #HowIFightDepression

3. Some days, kids help. Others…

I took a walk around town with my 7 month old daughter. No stroller, I just carried her around cuz she likes to reach for the leaves on trees and bushes.

She started to fight off sleep, then her head dropped to my neck & she was out. I’d never felt happier.#HowIFightDepression

2. You’re worth it.

Everytime I break down, I’d wipe my tears. Everytime I feel weak, I’d give myself strength. Everytime I get anxious, I’d fight to be in control. Everytime I give up, I’d remind myself why I shouldn’t stop. Everytime I feel lonely, I’d keep myself company. #HowIFightDepression

1. Any or all.

Get off social media.
Have lunch with another friend who gets it.
Exercise.
Get a good night sleep.
Listen to Funky Kingston by Toots and the Maytals.
Medicine and talk therapy. #HowIFightDepression
