Less stress may help lessen the depression. I know when I am stressin it induces my depression.
Try camping in a tent for a couple weeks off the beaten path to get sort of an idea of this
i dont, but ive been wanting to live out in the country for a very long time. It seems very peaceful and quiet, i would also get a dog too. If you have the money and can square away all loose ends in the hellish city i say go for it. Give it at least 1 year and 1/2 to let it set in fully. Instead of going to the country for me, i was just unemployed for a year and i feel so much better. It could also be a job that you hate, if you work.. Good luck
