I don’t seem to get out of depression despite being on medication. My mind has shrunken intellectually, what should I do?

Medications are used to change the neuro chemical balance, which according to psychiatrists is a way of treatment.

Yes, in some cases as bipolar or schizophrenia, it maybe essential.

I recommend you the following steps, if you really want to feel, think and act differently.

  1. Accept what you are feeling, don’t fight it. Feelings are there to make us understand what we want, what we value and what’s important, anger is classic example of values disturbed by someone.
  2. Seek the positive intent of the emotion, like depressive thinking maybe due to some loss, failure, person, so maybe the positive intent can be to seek new options, to attain excellence or some victory, to find a special someone, to have and seek people who love and care. It may not be immediately clear, but persistance always helps.
  3. Find new ways of thinking, use multiple perspectives on what you are thinking, ask people who have been through something similar, how they changed, seek new experiences. There are always many ways of thinking, many different and even opposite thoughts, what’s true, what’s really real? Does the thoughts I think help me? I am not my thinking, I am more.
  4. Practice Practice Practice new thinking, new actions, go for a walk whenever you don’t feel low, exercise, laugh, watch funny videos, movies. Meet people, make new friends, explore new passions. Keep yourself engaged in something you find meaningful and you enjoy.
  5. Have some chamomile tea at night, multivitamins, eat healthy food, exercise, read, write, visit new places, meet people, know that in some time, it’ll be different, comfortable and enjoyable.
  6. If you really persevere and believe, take small actions everyday, just for that day, soon changes will be felt, let your mind expand by different thinking, feelings, emotions by actions. Practice.

    NLP
    NLP stands for Neuro Linguistic Programming. Modelling is at the heart of NLP from which numerous patterns, processes and techniques were discovered and developed ranging from psychotherapy to business, from sports to peak performance and so on. Richard Bandler and John Grinder, the co-founders initially studied the wizards of the change work like Milton H. Erickson, Virginia Satir, Fritz Perls. Through modelling and then uncoding the process of excellence these wizards had, they developed numerous change patterns and techniques which create lasting generative change.
    Experiential Learning

    Experiential learning is the process of learning through experience, and is more specifically defined as "learning through reflection on doing". Hands-on learning is a form of experiential learning but does not necessarily involve students reflecting on their product. Experiential learning is distinct from rote or didactic learning, in which the learner plays a comparatively passive role. It is related to but not synonymous with other forms of active learning such as action learning, adventure learning, free choice learning, cooperative learning, and service learning.

    Ancient Wisdom – Tao

    Tao or Dao (/taʊ/, /daʊ/; Chinese: 道; pinyin: About this sound Dào (help·info)) is a Chinese word signifying 'way', 'path', 'route', or sometimes more loosely, 'doctrine' or 'principle'. Within the context of traditional Chinese philosophy and religion, the Tao is the intuitive knowing of "life" that cannot be grasped full-heartedly as just a concept but is known nonetheless through actual living experience of one's everyday being. The Tao differs from conventional (Western) ontology in that it is an active and holistic practice of the natural order of Nature and its universal awakening, rather than a static, atomistic one
