Here are a few ideas to help someone with depression and just to show them you care.☺

  • Chances are their room is a disaster and they have -846 motivation to do anything about it. Helping them tidy up will make them feel a little less overwhelmed.
  • Do their laundry. Even small chores seem to pile up when a person is depressed and not having clean clothes won’t make them feel any better. Washing their bedding is also great.

  • Try to convince them to go for a short walk with you. There is a good chance they will feel a lot better after.

  • If you can’t get them outside, at least open a window for fresh air and let some sunshine in.

  • Prepare them a healthy meal with some fresh fruit. Many depressed people fall into bad eating patterns.

  • If they aren’t eating enough, make sure they are taking a multi vitamin since not getting enough of a vitamin causes depression

  • Make them a warm, nice smelling bath. Aromatherapy is a great way to treat depression and anxiety.

  • Write them a letter or card to read for when they’re feeling really bad. ✉

  • Make them a recovery playlist with some of their favorite songs and anything up lifting.

  • Make them laugh.

  • Make them a cup of tea and sit with them.

  • Listen to them and try to understand what they’re feeling.

What would you add?

Stay strong my little darlings 🙂
