9 Environmental Tips to Help Lift Depression

. at . 1 comment

The Pastoral Counseling class I’ve been taking has some great information. I.e. Tomorrow we’ll hear more, but the prof said (and I can agree) that our environment can affect our moods.

Here are some simple things that can make a difference regarding depression:

  • Get some plants
  • Invite an animal to live with you
  • Put pictures on the wall
  • Declutter
  • Keep a tidy home
  • Listen to only uplifting music
  • Allow for some times of silence
  • Do what it takes to make you feel safe in your home
  • Write Scripture or encouraging quotes on the bathroom mirror

I don’t have any live plants in my house because if I did, I’d make them depressed.  🙂

However, the other 8 ideas are things I’ve done or am doing. (Although I don’t do all of them well.) In fact, if I want to feel sorry for myself (which will lead me into depression), all I have to do is listen to and sing with sad songs, fill my days/nights with constant sound, and messy up the place.

Your Turn . . . What environmental depression tips do you have?
