How to deal with depression on a daily basis?

I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety by a psychiatrist late last year. I have been working with this psychiatrist and one of his colleagues (a psychiatric nurse) individually on a weekly basis for three months or so now. Before this, I worked with a psychologist for four months.
I have been taking meds (Cipralex-20 mg) since January, but the overwhelming feelings of sadness are still here and on a daily basis. This is something that I have to deal with and will have to deal with for quite some time, especially since I'm just working on "being in the now" rather than exploring the past right away.
I purchased "The Woman's Comfort Book" which was recommended to me by the psychiatrist that I work with. I'm working on reading that to find good coping methods.
But, what are some other things that I can do in order to deal with feeling depressed on a daily basis?
Sorry if I didn't include that many details, I wasn't too sure what to add which is why this question is very brief. Feel free to ask me any follow up questions if required
