21 Tips

I'm still offline dealing, but since I'm not here to write I wanted to share a link to a very blunt, helpful list by The DIY Couturier of ways to cope when you're struggling with depression. As someone who has wrestled this (and continues to climb into the ring with it on a regular basis) I give it a huge gold star for honesty, realism and practicality. If I could add anything it would be to start a gratitude journal that you write in once a day about something (anything) for which you are thankful, and why -- that can help shift your perspective in another direction than down/out.


  1. Thank you for the link. It's a helpful, sensible post. And I like the idea of a gratitude journal.

  2. Thank you Lynn! This is just what I needed, when I needed it.

  3. Same here Lynn. Thank you. Very timely!
