Defeating Depression

Part of the CBT For Dummies Cheat Sheet (UK Edition)

You can prevent depression from taking control of your life by trying out some positive practices. Try these simple techniques, and take the first steps towards making depression a thing of the past:

  • Take a compassionate and self-accepting mindset to reduce any shame you may feel.

  • Reduce rumination by focusing your attention on the external here and now.

  • Recognise your negative thoughts as symptoms of depression, not facts.

  • Gradually reintroduce reinforcement back into your life by scheduling your activities.
