get outdoors! go camping or do day hikes. Get an Ergo baby carrier and walk the lil one around with the 8 yr old in tow. Mother nature does wonders for my down days. Sunshine and fresh air are our forgotten blessings and cures on this earth. Breathing excersizes help too

I would start with a part-time job. Definitely doesn't help depression to be sitting around in the house.

Where are the children's father? He should be stepping in and helping some. If you are suffering with depression, you should go see a doctor about it. See if maybe your 17 and 15 year olds would maybe helps out with the younger ones for a day.or at least a few hours. Have the 8 year old and older ones go out in the back yard and play while your 16 month old is napping and do something you want to do in the house
