When stuck in symptoms of depression, it helps to do simple things that you know will “raise your vibrations.”
You may not experience enjoyment doing these activities or feel better afterward—doing them is taking a leap of faith that your life energy is getting a positive charge no matter how you feel.
We all know what types of activities raise human vibration, or help people thrive. Many of them can be done in small increments of time and effort, and some require little effort at all—such as listening to inspiring music.
If you cannot rely on feelings of pleasure to reward your efforts, then you must exercise courage to do what helps you survive and feel better.
Humans are very motivated to do things that make them feel good. Those of us who are depressed cannot tap into that motivation. Still, we know intellectually what helps us thrive and doing these things can make a positive long-term difference. It is a coping tool that may add-up to better days.
