Day 18 of 31 days of depression.
Do you still have your own hobbies? Or have they completely fallen to the wayside?
It’s time to do something for yourself. Something you enjoy that makes you happy.
Need ideas? Check out Pinterest if you enjoy crafts, cooking, photography, or DIY projects.
Is there something you’ve always wanted to do? Do it now. Allow yourself the gift of learning something new and being excited again.
- Crafts – make some gifts for Christmas
- Create a collage
- Refinish furniture
- Make jewelry
- Plan a themed party
- Create a bucket list
What ever you choose, do it for yourself.
- Memorize this scripture: The Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen and protect you from the evil one. 2 Thessalonians 3:3
- Writing Prompt: Write down things you want to do. Find new or old hobbies and start doing them again. Don’t forget to write what you are thankful for and act on it. *If you would like a safe and free place to write, try this online journal at Penzu.

The next 31 days we will be discussing depression and healthy ways to combat it but we’re going to get real too. Because for those of us who wind up in the pit often, we know platitudes and fluff pieces do nothing for us. My expertise is only based on my own very personal battles with depression and is no way, professional or medical advice.
