I struggle with the same thing everyday. I found the website has alot of tips. You should check it out. The same person who has the website also wrote a book called Potatoes Not Prozac. I follow it and it’s worked for me. Good Luck!

some things you can try include exercise, reading self help sorts of books, writing down your feelings, meditation/ yoga etc.
if your depression and anxiety are due to chemical imbalances though, as opposed to stress the above strategies may not be helpful for you.. so i would recommend talking to someone ie a counsellor/ psychologist. I used to be really against the idea of talking to someone and thought it would be really embarrasing, but i’ve been seeing a psychologist now for almost 4 months and it’s really not that bad! it’s actually good to talk to someone who is balanced and trained.

good luck
