Go out.

On your bike, if you have one.

Get into nature, bring a book.

@Danioover9000  In my experience depression arises when you are trying to change something that will not change or expecting something to change that will not change. So what is it for you?

Understand that there are likely multiple root causes to your depression. This should be empowering to know because it implies there are solutions you can access. It will likely require a lot of effort, time and patience on your part, but your potentiality is limitless. Also, if you're serious about receiving help from others, including this community, know that the quality of the answers you get will depend on the quality of your intention behind the questions you ask.

Tell us more about yourself. Perhaps try meditating for 30 minutes while doing some deep self-inquiry. Why do you think you are depressed? Even if you don't "know".. deep down, you know. If you had access to your higher self, how would your higher self answer this question?

If you'd like to have a private conversation, PM me and I'd be happy to see if I can help you out.
