Write at Bedtime
Approach every day with an attitude of thankfulness. Impossible expectations lead to sadness. Try to write a gratitude journal daily—writing three thank-you notes a day really does make it less likely you will suffer depression.

While you're at it, put some music on in the background: research suggests that music can improve moderately depressed moods (one study also showed improved heart rate and blood pressure).
