The Cure for Depression

by rivercramer

The other day I was catching up with an old friend. He has gone through a full lifetime of hardship in the last few years. He told me, “I put a pull up bar in my front door. Every time I walk in the house or leave I jump up and do a couple. I don’t feel anxious or depressed anymore. Everyday I change it up, I think that is what is helping.”

In other words: If you are depressed, get out of bed.

I understand mental illness is not so simple. I am only encouraging myself to do the opposite of what my head is telling me to do.
