  5. Exercise  Regular exercise can help combat depression and prevent a relapse once you have recovered. Exercising increases the dopamine levels in your brain that help elevate your moods, leaving you feeling good about yourself.
  6. Set SMART goals  When struggling with depression, you often lack interest in daily activities and struggle to complete tasks or concentrate. This leads to low achievement, which contributes to low self- esteem. To fight such feelings, consider developing specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, and timely (SMART) goals.
