1. Consider adopting pets. Research shows that people who own pets (including cats or dogs) lead happier and healthier lives. The reason is that pets provide companionship and unconditional love, which is one of the reasons why they can help eliminate mild depression and/or stress.

2. Regular fitness exercises may help treat depression, including walking or jogging leisurely. Experts believe that walking for 30 minutes a day may help relieve stress and anxiety, which often leads to depression and may improve cardiovascular health.

3. Find a hobby you like. If you have too much time, please consider volunteering at a local hospital or participating in some type of community activities that can provide you with personal satisfaction and enjoyment. After all, busy hands are happy hands.

4. Lack of sleep is one of the main causes of stress and anxiety, which is directly related to depression. In order to improve the quality of sleep, please make sure that the mattress and pillows are comfortable. This may also help keep your bedroom at a comfortable temperature so you can fall asleep peacefully without interrupting sleep due to high or low temperatures. Finally, using a portable air filter will help remove allergens in the air and bring a clean feeling to your room. This may help reduce allergies, which often disrupt sleep and can cause anxiety throughout the day.

5. Consider the cause of frustration and try to eliminate it from life. Whether it is work or relationships, you can effectively eliminate frustration by staying away from the cause. If you have a lot of work pressure due to long working hours, please consider reducing overtime hours in exchange for more fun at home and with your family. If your academic requirements are too high, please consider evaluating your course, which is the most important for your education. If your relationship is important, you can consider counseling for the couple or discuss anything that bothers you with your partner. If the problem is too big to be solved, please consider reassessing your relationship at intervals to see if the depression is relieved after trying to separate.
