Seven Natural Ways to Kick Depression
Set Small Goals
Goal-setting is more of an art than most people realize. You want goals that are small enough to be readily achievable but large enough so that they are also meaningful.
Small goals work best when they drive you toward a major goal. For instance, if you want to eat healthier, your goals might be to try some new recipes, to incorporate some new foods, and maybe to lose 5 pounds. Keep building in that same direction. You can also set goals to get you moving (there are people who started out walking 10 minutes a day who goal-set their way to run a marathon!).
Small goals can also help you achieve some creative objective (such as writing a novel or learning how to quilt). Always be working toward at least one goal. Some highly successful people are really just skillful goal-setters who found out how far this little method can take them!
