Get Clean or Take A Hot Bath If Possible
One of the symptoms of depression is that you stop caring about getting clean, taking baths or taking showers on a regular basis. Sometimes having the dirt or grime of the previous day can hold you back mentally. Don’t allow it to sit on you for long periods of time.
So find the strength to lift yourself out of bed one day and get in the shower. It doesn’t have to be a long shower, just a few minutes, soap and water. Get clean. Then see how you feel after that.
