Coping with Severe Depression

A severe depression can overtake your life, making it hard even to find the energy to get out of bed in the morning. Overcoming or Coping with Severe Depression is a long and arduous process, and it can often seem overwhelming even to start trying to overcome it. However, that is exactly what you must do.


It is OK to start small; in fact, it is the best way to get started. Even just taking a quick walk around the block or calling a loved one on the phone can help. Stay connected with friends or family, especially in person if possible. Another great way to help is by helping other people, through volunteering or just simply doing something nice for another person.

Another important goal for coping with severe depression is to live a healthy lifestyle. This includes remaining active, aiming for at least a half hour of physical activity every day. If the thought of a hard workout sounds like too much, just getting out and going for a few short walks throughout the day will be a big help. It’s also important to maintain a healthy, balanced diet. This can also increase your energy, making it easier to stay active and stay positive.

One small step in coping with sever depression is simply to do things that you enjoy and that make you feel good. Make time for yourself every day, whether it’s simply picking up a book you enjoy or restarting an old hobby. Spend time in nature getting a little sunlight, or maybe watch an episode of a funny TV show you like. These types of activities can make you feel better and happier.


In some cases, your doctor may prescribe anti-depressants to help boost your mood. Even if you are on this medication, it’s vital to keep working on self-help methods to boost your mood and help you feel better. Sometimes depression can make you feel hopeless, but better times are coming, and depression can be overcome!

For patients who did not experience positive impacts from anti-depression medication, TMS Therapy is another option. This is a treatment approved by the FDA which is performed in a doctor’s office using a medical device called a TMS Therapy System. It is both non-invasive and non-systemic, meaning that it does not involve surgery, and does not involve anything that circulates through the blood stream. Treatment sessions are typically 5 times per week for 4-6 weeks.
