Depression and methods to alleviate it

Answer: 

(How of Happiness p. 261-262)

"The activities that will be most effective in lifting depressive symptoms should be those that increase positive emotions (e.g. joy and relief at overcoming an obstacle), their surrounding positive thoughts (e.g. "I'm tougher than I thought"), and positive experiences or events (making an important deadline at work)."
