Depression Home Remedy: Spruce Up

Here’s another simple thing I find helps me when I’m feeling depressed: I tidy myself up.

I fix my hair: curl it or style it so that it looks great. If I’m having a bad hair day, I’ll start from scratch with a shower and a blowout. I put on clothes that make me feel good, something smart and tailored, in a color that suits me. It’s not the time for yoga pants and sweatshirts.


And I’ll do what I almost never do: I’ll put on makeup. The works.


I telecommute from home, so I see more mirrors in the course of a day than I would if I worked in a regular office. Running into myself looking better than normal helps pick me up.

Do you have any healthy home remedies for depression?
