When one starts experiencing persistent negative mood such as anxiety, sadness, anger, hopelessness, dissatisfaction, helplessness and loosing control of the environment during the deployment of a spouse, could be described as being depressed with the possibility of interfering in ones life thoughts. The paragraphs  below provides us with solutions of how to cope  and deal with the above symptoms of depression at the deployment of our spouses.

Identifying with  support  groups that is basically concerned with depression could  be a panacea of coping with depression. Support  groups could be found in counties, states and Internet. These  support groups are usually more experienced and equipped to handle depressions, so identifying with them will help to deal with depression. Added to this, is also the consultation of therapist who specializes in depression.

Daily physical exercises will help to deal with depression. It usually have heavy impact on the body, soul and  mind. Physical exercises will help to reduce the consciousness of our spouses deployment, and when this is achieved, depression will reduce or disappear, because as the consciousness of  the deployment  in our mind is high, the  higher the depression. Physical exercises will narrow our thoughts to the immediate happening action of the day. For instance, if a depressed person/anybody goes to jog in a stadium, the mind will be focused on the jogging  and even after the jogging.

The thoughts should be controlled, the power of our thoughts should be tapped into. There should be reduction in negative  thoughts and enhancement of positive  thoughts. If negative thoughts are higher, depression will be worsened and if it is positive depression will be reduced and controlled which will be good to  the health.

There  should be  a great deal of sleeping. Depression is more emotional than physical and when there is more sleeping, the mind and body becomes  more refreshed leading to balancing of the emotions. Like the physical exercises, sleeping have great impacts on the mind and  body. Whenever we sleep and wake up, its always like we are born anew. Therefore tapping into the effects of sleeping, will help  one to cope with depression.

Another solution of coping with depression is having a forgiving heart. When we are being hurt, we shouldn't hold it in our mind, we should learn to forgive.  Not forgiving will most times keep and build the offence in our mind, therefore worsening our emotions during depression. Forgiving is an antidote to depression. In addition involving in stressful things should be reduced, eating  habit  enhanced and ,more time should be given to our hobbies.

We should learn to  resign to faith. Who ever is in the habit of resigning to faith in whatever incidence that happens is usually more stronger and emotionally balanced. Such a person will hardly have a troubled mind. The concept of let the will of God be done will take precedence and not our own will. This is also the same direction of the Christian faith. If the above  can  be achieved, it will be the greatest antidote of coping with depression.
