Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.
Even if it’s just a walk round the block or to the shop to buy a bar of chocolate. I spent an awful lot of time cooped up inside when my depression first hit and it made the world very small and very dark.

Now I try and get outside every day, even when it’s raining and even if it is literally just for one minute. It’s worth it to share a smile with a passing neighbour, to hear the flurry of wings as a starling shoots past or get the whiff of approaching rain in the air.
