I've realized the importance of eating healthy, having a regular sleep schedule and exercising while dealing with anxiety and depression. I was in a slump for nearly a month where I was sleeping in til 12 or 1 pm and going to sleep late. I filled my body with a lot of junk food. I have started eating healthier a few days ago and I am starting to feel the difference. I have cut out pizza, pasta, added sugars and processed food. I still do indulge in those but my regular diet consists of fish, chicken, veggies, fruits, nuts, beans, and yogurt. If you are not one to eat fruit as a solid then making smoothies is a great idea ! I'm currently working on my sleep schedule. Also, instead of checking your phone first thing in the morning, 10 or 20 minutes of deep breathing, yoga, or stretching makes a huge difference. It is very important to give yourself "you time" while you are dealing with anxiety and/or depression. I'm not sure if you are religious or not but praying does help too.
