RE: Reframing your mind to battle depression and CBT
I have depression and even attempted suicide when I was in my early 20s

It sucks!

I'm getting a whole lot better now.

The best things I've found are

1) exercise religiously (45-60 min every day). I don't even take days off to recover because it fucks with me mentally.

2) St Johns Wort + 5HTP have helped me a lot, far more than any pharmaceuticals

3) rewiring you're brain is a long, slow process, but the best things that I've done is read a couple books that helped me (very slightly) to reframe everything in a more positive light.
a) Psychedelics: I've experimented a few times with shrooms and dmt, and man, they really let you feel the love in the universe if the set & setting is right and you "see" that you're alright, everything is exactly how its supposed to be.
b) meditation helps in a lot of ways that I can't put into words, you get these little epiphanies and learn equanimity.
