So you’ve graduated, now what? 10 Ways to Beat Post-Grad Depression

Updated: Aug 21, 2019

We wait all of our lives for adulthood and then boom, it’s really happens.

I graduated from college a few months ago. While many of my peers told me that life after graduation was weird, it’s one of those things that you have to find out the hard way. After graduation, I moved back home to help out with my family. I did not have any job offers and I wasn’t going directly to law school. Honestly, I had no plan. It was easy to feel defeated and disappointed. I had visions and dreams and I also had lots of newly freed time.

Life after graduation can be a bit overwhelming. You’re literally thrown into adulthood and you’re wondering where the hell the guidebook is. The good news is, no one really knows what they’re doing in life, so that’s a plus!

Here are 10 ways to beat Post-Graduate Depression:

  • Breathe

  • Write out your goals, dreams, visions

  • Spend time with friends/family

  • Travel

  • Get a job

  • Find a new hobby

  • Explore your city

  • Practice consistent self-care

  • Volunteer locally

  • Write/Journal

While some days are better than others, really try to be as present as you can in this time in your life. After college is the time to explore and to engage. It is time to find out more about who you are as an individual. Remember, you got this! ✨
