Vitamin D supplement (never hurts anyways!)
30 mins of excersise everyday. For me personally I have to have 30min of intense excersise for this to work. A walk or jog doesn't cut it. I need boxing, crossfit, hard run, etc- this is a personal preference for my depression.
Tanning. If you cannot spend 30min outside excersising or outside period a 10 min tanning bed session a couple tims a week will help supplement vitamin D plus the alone time can work wonders.
These are methods that work for me to stay off medication. I still have down days but I'm at least in control and I know what I need on my bad days.
