Augmenting Your Antidepressants

Today’s post is about natural antidepressants. Here’s on of my favorites:

Cat Digging My Shoes

I think psychiatrists should hand out kittens, along with the drugs. (While this is not my cat, those are my shoes.)

Next is nature therapy. I took these shots at a park not ten minutes from where I live. When you can walk, trail run, or ride your bike here, who needs a gym? I’m a firm believer that outdoor exercise is way better for mental health than slogging away on a treadmill. You get your vitamin D, a little nature (yesterday I saw a gorgeous deer), and lots of fresh air. The last shot is of my favorite tree in the park.

But don’t take my word for it. Here’s a link to a scientific study showing that outdoor exercise is better for you than indoor exercise.

Also, these two types of therapy don’t make your hair fall out. No more Abilify for me! (But I am still on the Wellbutrin and Viibryd. For now.)
