Buy Yourself Flowers: Managing Depression with #SelfCare

hope and joy  

Managing depression can be hard. I've lived with depression for the majority of my life. As I've educated myself on depression and the debilitating impact it can have, I have learned ways to manage through the rough spots.  These acts are called self care, self kindness, and self compassion. When my depression gets too heavy,  I make the effort to do simple things that help me connect to hope and joy. On its face, buying yourself flowers seems trivial. The reality is that simple acts of self kindness help connect you with being present. It is a measure of #selfcare that helps to combat those painful thought processes that can keep us spiraling in deeper depression.

What things do you do to manage depression and sadness?
