If you could wave a magic wand and make your depression 100% better, what would be different about…

Behavior Modification Homework for Depression

Think about a single behavior that would improve your mood. Here are some examples:

  • *Getting up at a specified time rather than hitting snooze or lying in bed awake
  • *Eating lunch outside rather than inside daily
  • *Going for a 20-minute walk first thing in the morning
  • *Consuming less sugar
  • *Remembering to take your medications

Now, create a behavior modification plan for that single behavior. Talk with Dr. Cleaveland about your plan, either via phone or email. Refine the plan, and implement it!
