health strategies for managing and preventing depression
Depression consumes your day-to-day life and interferes with your ability to work, study, eat, sleep, and have fun.
Change in Sleep
You find yourself sleeping too little or too much.
Feeling tired and have no energy
You feel low on energy, even when you haven’t exerted yourself. This fatigue isn’t alleviated by rest or sleep.
Decreased interest or pleasure
You lose interest in doing things you used to enjoy, such as going to movies, reading, shopping, cooking, playing with your children.
Take more risks than normal
You might find yourself engaging in escaping or risky behaviour. This could mean pursuing dangerous sports, driving recklessly, or engaging in unsafe sex. You might drink too much, abuse drugs, or gamble compulsively.
