For me it is forcing myself off the couch and to do something interactive or for someone else. Giving time, effort, or advice away will make my spirit lift.
Sometimes if I exercise or escape into a book or movie my perspective will change.
The most important thing to try is; prayer, and reading the Word.
Also do some "truth telling"
about what is really going on. Think "what is the truth about my present situation, and what can I do about it?"
Take the action that you can take at that current moment and then trust God that no matter what - you will trust Him to help you through any challenge, illness, betrayal or difficulty that you might have in the future. Present mindset is important for fighting off depression.
I am going to the store to stock up on food for meals and lunches this evening. Aiming to focus on others' needs and do something constructive!! Maybe my attitude will turn from gray to colorful!!
