They say being active works the same as some anti-depressants, call a friend and arrange some walks even if you dont feel like it, exercise can hellp more than you know, also good clean diet and skip the news channel , watch a good comedy, or get involved ina good community, go to church and volunteer to help, helping others always helps you.
God Bless.
