According to NPR,

“I think the biggest surprise is that if you have a favorable lifestyle, you can reduce the risk of your getting depression by 57%, which is really quite a massive amount,” says study author Barbara Sahakian, a clinical psychologist and neuroscientist at the University of Cambridge.

The researchers found that there are 7 healthy habits maintained that cut the risk of depression in people by 57% when employing five or more a day. Researchers analyzed markers of inflammation, including C-reactive protein, linked to depression, and the relation found between inflammation and C-reactive protein concentrations.

Good sleep, exercise, nourishment, limiting alcohol, no smoking, limited screen time, and social connection with good friendships through hobbies are the 7 good healthy habits.
