    i appreciate this blog when i first made this back in may i was going through a lot but i still am. but I'm grateful because i can openly express myself on here and get honest opinions.. i know people judge on here but who doesn't .. but I'm truly happy I'm able to talk about things i wouldn't say on my other social media accounts because family n few friends wouldn't understand or they don't care but whatever ..

    Hmm, I have little experience in phone addiction, but maybe if you deleted a couple of social media accounts, you would have less reason to go on, or maybe limit the number of times you can check it, like 'only when I get a text' or 'only once every two hours' - if you write this down and then give it a tick when you follow it, it will be more satisfying. Or keep yourself busy with tasks and hobbies. And remember, "out of sight, out of mind".

    For depression, I would suggest:
    + Going out more and being active
    + Spending more time with family or friends
    + Appreciate the little things - watch funny videos, listen to upbeat music, look at some old photographs of good memories
    + Remember what it is that motivates you - pursue your passions
    + If you lack motivation, make a to-do list

    Obviously if your depression is severely affecting your everyday functioning, go to your GP, so they can help alter your negative thought patterns.
