This may seem pretty obvious but when depression strikes I often forget to take care of myself. The simple act of making sure I get up and have a shower makes me feel like I can start the day afresh.
Kelsey on Facebook adds: "If don't shower I'll be a couch potato literally all day and then by 8pm feel absolutely horrible about doing nothing. I'm not about to waste a showered bod so at the very least I'll be able to get out, run some errands, read in the park/at the beach."
Madonna, also on Facebook, agrees: "Body wash with mint oil and a cool shower is SUPER helpful, especially if you've been, like, misery-napping."
