I will also add, and I don’t mean to imply that this is a cure-all for mental health issues, but if you are not in the habit of exercising, I’d highly recommend it. It helps with depression and anxiety. It doesn’t have to be anything intense, it can be whatever movement feels good to you within your abilities. And I get it, sometimes when we are depressed, the last thing you want to do is get out of bed and go for a stupid walk… you can start small by taking laps around the block.
I’m trying a vitamin C supplement for the first time this year cause I live in Chicago where in the winter it can get (and has been) stupid cold, the skies are often grey, and the days are very short. Will it help? IDK. But I’m someone whose baseline isn’t what I’d call happy but always picks “trying.”
