People suffering from depression will face a major symptom of self-judgment and they themselves put them down in any aspect. It is hard not to turn off the self-judgment, but it can be brought back to the present. Results from the research state that people with higher self-compassion also have higher self-confidence.
Your Goals :
Set your goals and achieve them.
Most people feel uncomfortable when asked what their goals are because they set unreasonable or unworkable goals. Set a Goal and it should be workable because by setting these workable goals one should work hard which helps to divert the mind into some physical and mental activity as a result depression may wipe off. If something goes wrong with your goal don’t get depressed with it, learn what you can from the failure. Stop comparing your progress of goals with others.

Take some time and look at what went well in the entire day.
