4. Do something that makes you happy.
Once you are up, bathed, and fed, the goal of your day should be to do at least one thing that makes you happy.
Whether it’s watching a TV show, hanging out with a friend, taking your dog for a walk, or having a hot bath, doing even one thing that makes you happy will raise your dopamine levels which in turn will alleviate your depression, even if for a brief time.
The very best thing that you could do for yourself, even if it’s not one of your favorites, is to get some exercise. Exercise, of any kind, raises your dopamine levels and dopamine is essential for good health. So, if you can get out there and walk or run or dance, you will be glad you did.

5. Believe that this will pass.
When we are depressed, it’s very easy for us to believe that this will never pass, that we will always be depressed. When you are in the middle of a depression, the future always looks bleak.
What I am here to tell you is that, from the perspective of someone who isn’t depressed, your world will get better.
That the things that are making you feel so down today will not necessarily make you feel horrible tomorrow. If you can just get through this day then chances are that tomorrow, or the next day, your depression will pass and you will be happy again.
Of course, if you find that your depression isn’t passing, or that it’s getting worse, it’s important that you get help.
There are different types of depression and some of them don’t get better without treatment. In fact, some of them get worse the longer they go untreated. So, if you find yourself feeling depressed in the morning but find that your depression is not getting better, reach out to your primary doctor and let them help you get through this.
Feeling depressed in the morning is not fun. After a good night’s sleep, before the day begins, one hopes to have just a few moments of peace to enjoy the corner of the world in which we live. When we are depressed, those moments of peace are stolen from us.
So, if you are feeling depressed in the morning, get out of bed, take a shower, eat some breakfast, do something that you love to do, and have some hope. Depression is horrible but it doesn’t have to ruin your life.
Do the things that you need to do NOW to manage your depression before it gets worse!
